Sometime you need a good skillet meal. If you did not know I love fajitas – I remember having my first one at Chili’s – I thought it was the coolest thing how much it sizzled. Because Eric does not like onions we do not really make fajitas but I wanted to find a way to get the flavors into a pasta dish that everyone in my family can enjoy.

What I really like about skillet pasta meals is how easy they reheat again. Though with this recipe I doubt you will have many leftovers.

This is everything you will need – you can add in a 1/2 onion if you want – Eric HATES and I mean HATES onions so there was no way I could add it in . This recipe is a little different as well because I decided to not use my usual grape seed or olive oil – but coconut oil – I have heard great things about it. It really worked out well for this recipe.

Making this recipe again I am going to increase the amount of sour cream I used. But overall the recipe is extremely easy and not too spicy. Perfect weekday meal.

This recipe is 4 servings.
