We love chicken fajitas. Since we started following a keto lifestyle, whenever we eat out at a Mexican Restaurant my hubby and I order fajitas and eat them over a bed of lettuce. It’s been such an easy transition for us not to eat the tortillas. I thought it would be a perfect night for homemade baked chicken fajitas. Then, I remembered how good it tasted when I added a little bit of our kids’ cheese dip to my fajitas. I knew if I could create a keto friendly queso dip to serve with our fajitas at home our kids would be in hog heaven! I can assure you that the homemade queso with baked chicken fajitas did not disappoint! Oh, my stars! I felt like we were eating at our favorite Mexican Restaurant tonight without the hassle of getting all four kids out.

Once the fajitas are ready you can serve two different ways. Either keep the queso and fajitas separate, or pour the cheesy goodness right on top and serve as is or on a bed of lettuce.
We decided to dive straight in and pour the homemade Keto Queso Dip right on top. Doesn’t this look amazing?
