Easy Cheesy Fajita Chicken and Rice

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Erin0583

I came up with this recipe one night while submerged in the depths of a fajita craving. I serve it over white rice with the cheese blend melted down over top. Sometimes I spice things up with a dollop of sour cream; as it melts down over the hot chicken and rice it makes the juice all creamy and delicious.

This was pretty good! I added a little more fajita seasoning, mixed the rice in with the mixture then wrapped it in shells, it was a hit with my family! Thank you!
