Healthy Fajita Recipe

I’m a HUGE (huge) fajita fan.  It is a totally versatile dish that allows you to “build your own” dinner.  It’s something my husband and I make often because he can pile on the sour cream and beans (not listed below, those are his personal additions)… and I can pile on the veggies and pico de gallo. This fajita recipe is 21 day fix approved! 
Note: Sometimes we add a 5 ounce glass of wine along with dinner, which would replace one of the yellow containers for the day (you can do this 3 times a week and stay on the meal plan for 21 day fix).
