Cumin Cilantro Fajita Stir Fry

Holy man I can’t even with this recipe right now… Probably one of the best things I’ve ever tasted. And I created it, no big deal! Mind you I fell in love with this dressing years ago, just found a fantastic way to incorporate it into a dish.

I am a huge lover of chicken fajitas. If I were going to die tomorrow and got to choose my last meal it would be chicken fajitas. Well now it would be this recipe! And of course it’s pretty dang healthy dish as well. 

This meal will make or break for you depending if you like cilantro or not. The cumin cilantro dressing I make is to die for. So it really compliments the dish well!

You could do the classic wrap for this or I also made a batch of coconut rice to eat it with which also goes very very well with the dish.

I’m just so excited for you all to try this and love it!
