Easy Chicken Fajitas Recipe
White Queso Smothered Chicken Fajitas just might be my favorite chicken fajita recipe to make at home. So good and so easy!
Chicken Fajitas are one of my favorite meals, and this Queso Smothered Chicken Fajita Recipe is EVERYTHING! Sadly for my waist line, I can never get enough cheese.
It’s cursed me since my brother and I were kids and my Mom would tell us that we would turn into cheese if we weren’t careful. As an adult with a full-time food blog business…cheese has become my middle name.
This easy chicken fajitas recipe is one of the best, perfect for Cinco de Mayo, Taco Tuesday, or dinner at home. It’s such a fun dish.
Learning how to make chicken fajitas kind of changed the game for me, because now I don’t have to go out to a restaurant to get something so sinfully delicious!
These Queso Smothered Fajitas will be your new favorite fajita recipe!
Queso Smothered Chicken Fajita Recipe
This Queso Smothered Chicken Fajita Recipe is the ultimate Tex Mex Comfort food. One bite of this cheese and you’ll be famous forever.
As I’ve gotten older, I’ve just decided to truly own my love of cheese and queso dip. My Dad says (with pride??) that he has never been to a Mexican Restaurant with me without me ordering a large queso dip. And I don’t need anyone else to dig in to make it worth it.
Mom and Dad recently tried a new restaurant in town and had a variation of this dish. Since Mom and I talk food endlessly, I knew right away that 1) She had the best Chicken Fajita recipe ever and 2) We had to recreate them immediately.
I’m so glad we did. This easy chicken fajitas recipe has stolen my cheese loving heart!
I’ve made every type of queso dip imaginable. Chicken Con Queso, Vegan Queso, 4 Ingredient Beer Cheese Dip, Crock Pot Queso Fundido, and the Easy White Queso used to smother these fajitas (linked in the recipe card below) have quickly become some of my favorite and most popular recipes on The Cookie Rookie. More cheese, please!
What goes well with Chicken Fajitas?
Oh goodness…where do I begin. Of course you need salsa with this easy chicken fajitas recipe, but I also feel you need rice and beans.
I recently made Cheesy Easy Mexican Rice and I plan to make that and simple black beans next time we eat them (aka…next week). You can also serve them with Mexican Street Corn, Guacamole and Chips, or Cornbread.
Here are a few more things you could serve on the side or as extra toppings:
- Pico de Gallo
- Refried Beans
- Red Beans and Rice
- Sour cream
- Avocado Slices
What vegetables can you put in this fajita recipe?
I’m a big fan of simple when it comes to classic recipes like Chicken Fajitas. We always keep things classic and simple by grilling up onions and tri-colored bell peppers. Perfection!
How many calories are in Chicken Fajitas?
Well…that’s probably a question better left unanswered. Everything in moderation…right? At a typical restaurant, a serving of Chicken Fajitas will have approximately 400 calories, and the tortillas can easily double that.
Our Queso Smothered Fajitas are clocking in just over 800 calories…Yeah, that’s not a small amount, but it’s worth eating healthy ALL DAY so you can indulge in these at night. Don’t give it another thought.
What drinks pair well with fajitas?

So much flavor!
I’m so happy to hear you enjoyed this recipe, Sheila!
Thank you awesome Recipes
Thank you for stopping by, Pam!
I was kinda skeptical but with a 5-star rating, I figured I’d try. I love chicken fajitas….soooo, I followed the recipe as directed. I didn’t use too much lime juice on top of the prepared chicken but ended up adding more which really set it off even more. Adding the cheese sauce over top was Fantastic…never had it that way before. I will definitely be making this more often!! Thank you for how easy the directions were also, very easy to follow! It came out awesome!
That is so awesome to hear, Kathy!! I am so glad you loved the recipe so much!
I can see why this is such a favorite! I’ve definitely owned my love of cheese and have proudly passed that same love down to my kids, lol so I know this will be a hit with us too. Thanks!
This was delicious! I followed the recipe except I used chicken tenders instead of breasts. I served it with avocado, rice and beans. My husband loved it and so did I. Definitely will be making again and again. Thank you,
It’s so tasty, I am glad your family loved it!
I made this today, paired it with my homemade tex-mex rice & black beans… It is PHENOMENAL! Thanks for a yummy recipe – ❤
The smothered chicken can go well with everything, I’m gonna make mine with white rice for my dinner.
Gonna make the fajitas for the weekend brunch, thanks for the recipe, all the love xoxo

Hi Sue- Did you hit “print” within the recipe card? Can you screenshot me what it’s doing and email me at email@example.com? Hitting print within the recipe card should open up a print friendly version of the recipe. It’s working on my end but I’d love to help you troubleshoot what’s happening.
