Sheet Pan Chipotle Fajitas with Jalapeño and Lime Crema

When you say sheet pan, I say 5 minute clean up. And what’s better than that? Since I relatively do all the cooking, Adam is on designated dish duty (bless him). Since he is alway for work this week, I just so happened to create the easiest clean up meal. Coincidence? I think not. Sorry honey.

I think it’s clear by now, my flavor palette prefers all things chipotle and adobo. Something about the smokiness and heat from the roasted jalapeños is divide to me and will forever be a personal favorite.

Don’t like spice? Remove the chipotles in adobo and the jalapeño from the recipe and you’ll be just fine.

With Cinco de Mayo right around the corner, uh well okay tomorrow, I thought let’s get this recipe up ahead of time so y’all can prepare! I promise you, this recipe will take less time to throw together than the amount of time you’ll spend mashing avocados for the guacamole.

Also, this recipe will be in my cookbook, which ideally will be out in September!
