Skillet Fajitas

These Skillet Fajitas are the perfect one pan dish for sharing and can be cooked on your BBQ, stove or over the fire in a cast iron skillet on your next camping trip! Prep the mixture ahead in a large resealable bag or container to make these even easier. Substitute sliced portobello mushrooms for the chicken to make it vegetarian.
