White Queso Smothered Chicken Fajitas just might be my favorite chicken fajita recipe to make at home.

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 (more him than me, if you can believe that!) 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.

Read on to hear about my new fave cheesy recipe; Queso Smothered Chicken Fajitas Recipe!

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!

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 these Cheesy Chicken Fajitas. Since Mom and I talk food…endlessly…I knew right away 1) She had had the most amazing Chicken Fajita recipe ever and 2) We had to recreate them immediately.

I’m so glad we did. These Queso Smothered Chicken Fajitas have stolen my cheese loving heart.

What goes well with Chicken Fajitas?

Oh goodness…where do I begin. Of course you need salsa with this chicken fajita recipe, but I also feel you need Rice and Beans. I recently made Cheesy Easy Mexican Rice and I plan to make those and simple black beans with these chicken fajitas next time we serve (aka…next week). You can also serve with Mexican Street Corn, Guacamole and Chips, or Cornbread. Yum!

What vegetables can you put in Fajitas?

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 this Chicken Fajitas Recipe?

Welllllllll…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 these Queso Smothered Chicken Fajitas?

MARGARITAS! We love our margaritas around here, and I’ve got plenty of great margarita recipes for you:

Cheers!
