chicken and frozen veggies fajitas

Check in the frozen section at your grocery store for a bag of plain frozen peppers and onion, about 12 ounces. So, so easy and very affordable at my grocery store. Of course, you can use fresh chopped onion and bell peppers alternatively.

At first, I was worried that the chicken and veggies would end up mushy or soggy since there are frozen ingredients, but nope! The chicken and veggies cook up perfectly in the air fryer together. The chicken can even be slightly frozen and it will still turn out wonderfully.

It is super convenient to just dump a fajita seasoning packet into the mix, but it is also pretty easy to mix up your own fajita seasoning. Do whichever you want! Below is the homemade fajita seasoning recipe that I use from The Recipe Critic. Or, in a pinch, you could use taco seasoning.
