  2. Slice onion and pepper fairly thin.
  3. On a separate cutting board, cut the chicken into thin strips.
  4. Fry the chicken in butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Salt and pepper to taste. When the chicken is almost cooked through, add onion, pepper and Tex-Mex seasoning.
  5. Lower the heat and continue to fry while stirring for a couple of minutes until the chicken is thoroughly cooked and the vegetables have softened just a bit.
  6. Place lettuce in a bowl and add the chicken mixture. Add shredded cheese, diced avocado, chopped tomatoes, fresh cilantro and perhaps a dollop of sour cream.

Tip!

A spoonful of your favorite salsa can be a nice addition. Also, feel free to substitute guacamole for the avocado in this fajita bowl.

    I always find bowls so much fun as meals. They're a simple way to make recipes keto and often look amazing as well. I love your recipe here - especially as it would be easy to make a kid-friendly version as well.

    Super duper simple, yet quite delicious. The sour cream takes it to another level, don't skip it :0)

    Does anyone know the amount of kcals, fat & protein in the bowl per serving? It would be very helpful. Thanks.

    I too have asked this question about calories, carbs, fiber, fat and protein for all of these recipes. I never get a response. Please share if you hear anything! Good luck.

    Do you cut out and discard the chicken skin and fat excess??

    Hi Nikki!

    We don't want to promote to much "counting" that's why we only have the carbs in gram (fat and protein in %).

    But we know about this demand for additional nutritional info and I think we will provide more info soon.

    I plugged it into Verywellfit.com’s recipe nutrition calculator. I was astounded!! For 3 servings, this is the breakdown: Cal 942, Fat 68.1, Protein 67.2, Carbs 12. This is not a low carb meal. I’ve found the same problem with a couple if the other recipes from this page. Very disappointed.

    I used chicken breast and both me and my teenager loved it. Made a big batch of the tex-mex seasoning, it's so much better than the store bought ones.

    I put this meal into MyFitnessPal and it came in at almost 13g of carbs, I used the uk version which has fiber already deducted, but confused as I want to do this right.

    If you don't like dark meat chicken, like thighs, how much fat would you add to chicken breast to make it keto? And would this have the same effect of eating the dark meat with the fat? Thank you!!

    I'm am towards the end of my first doing the 2 week getting started challenge and I have just made this meal (with extra for tomorrow lunch). What a great recipe! I swapped green pepper for yellow pepper as my local store didn't have any. I also followed diet doctor's recipe for tex-mex seasoning and it all tasted amazing. The chicken and vegetables were spicy and full of flavour. I didn't use any sour cream, but did have some mayonnaise with it. This is one of my favourites so far!

    Hi,
    I really dislike any meat on the bone and would therefore like to substitute in chicken breast. How many grams of chicken breast can I add per serving?
    Thanks!
