The ingredients of chicken fajitas are put into bowls for a nice and spicy Mexican dinner. This recipe gets most of its heat from Chipotle in Adobo sauce. I found it to be fairly spicy so if you do not like hot food I would recommend you cut down on the amount of Chipotle in adobo. The process to preparing this recipe is very simple. The chicken is simmered in a tomato sauce with black beans, onions, and peppers. If you don’t want to use white rice, you can use brown rice instead. Enjoy.
