Chicken Fajita Quesadillas

I always loved fajitas growing up! It wasn’t until recently that I tried making my own fajitas and realized just how easy they were! You can throw almost anything into your skillet with the right spices and you’ve got the most delicious, and decently healthy meal in just a matter of minutes! These Chicken Fajita Quesadillas are a combination of two of my favorite foods, and the outcome is amazing!
