Notes

Nutrition information is only for the shredded chicken and excludes tortillas and optional toppings.
If you like spicy foods, use a can of HOT Ro*Tel.  It has habaneros and will definitely add some heat to the fajitas.
You can substitute taco seasoning for fajita seasoning.
You can use either red or yellow onion in this recipe.
Chicken needs to reach an internal temperature of 165° Fahrenheit before consuming.
