BBQ Chicken Fajitas

Make it a Family Fajita Night: BBQ Chicken Fajita Recipe and #MyBlogSpark Giveaway [Closed]

I received an Old El Paso prize pack for review as well as the opportunity to host this giveaway through MyBlogSpark. No other incentive was provided and opinions are my own.

BBQ Chicken Fajitas

Living in rural Pennsylvania, I have long had a deep appreciation for the work done by independent farmers. Adding many fresh vegetables to our daily diets is important, and knowing that they were grown naturally and without harmful chemicals can provide us with a unique ease and assurance that we really are doing good for our bodies.

During the summer months, farmers markets pop up all over the area. It doesn’t matter what grocery store you prefer to shop at, produce doesn’t get any fresher than what you can find at your local farmers market. Not only do you get the freshest produce available and know it was grown by someone who put love and very little else into it, but by purchasing locally-grown produce, you are supporting the people in and around your own community.

As disappointing as it may be, summer is drawing to a close, but you can still find a good farmers market that stays open right up until the chilly fall weather takes over. End your summer on a high note with fresh produce from your local farmers market and use Old El Paso to lend some bold, delicious flavor to those veggies.

  1. i think i would like to try the veggie burger recipe. it sounds yummy and would be fabulous with farmer’s market fresh produce! thanks for such a great prize and giveaway!

  2. Mmm, fajitas. They are one of my favorite Mexican foods, second only to enchiladas. I’d love to try out Chipotle Chicken-Layered Enchiladas, and I’d make Beer Queso Nachos for my husband and his friends.

  3. Grilled Chicken with Chipotle Avocado Salsa. I selected fresh tomatoes, green onions, chicken, avocado and peppers and this is one of the recipes it came up with.

  4. I would like to try the breakfast burritos, Green Chili Pulled Pork burritos, and the chicken and cheese enchiladas.

  5. OH BOY! We love Mexican and we love Farmer’s Markets! I saw many recipes I would really like to try soon – including:
    Greek Quesadillas, Chicken Salad Tostadas, Fish Tacos, BLT Wraps, 7-Lasyer Tasco Salad and Game Day Nachos.

  6. There are quite a few that look awesome but I would love to try the corn fritters and the Farmers Market Dip. They look so yummy.

  7. I will definitely make the Seasoned Roasted New Potatoes. I think I might even get my husband, the picky eater, to eat them!
