By “naked” fajitas, we just mean “fajitas without the tortilla.” Nothing scandalous going on here, unless it’s how scandalously delicious this meal is.


Black Bean Salsa:

  • 1 (15 oz.) can no-salt-added black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 avocado, cubed
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • ½ cup chopped cilantro leaves
  • 1 Tbsp. lime juice
  • ¼ tsp. salt

Chicken Fajitas:

  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. chili powder
  • ⅛ tsp. pepper
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, sliced
  • 2 bell peppers, sliced
  • 1 onion, sliced


  1. Toss salsa ingredients together. Set aside.
  2. Mix 1 tablespoon oil, garlic, chili powder, black pepper, and salt in a medium bowl. Add the chicken and toss to coat.
  3. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon of oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Sauté the peppers and onions until tender and browning (15-20 minutes). Remove from the skillet and set aside.
  4. In the same skillet, sauté the chicken until fully cooked (3-5 minutes). Toss with peppers and onions and serve topped with salsa.
