Sheet Pan Fajitas recipe for diabeticsJenny of Integrated Diabetes Services shares a recipe you’ll want to make again and again!

Awesome recipe – totally easy to do in the oven or on the grill and you can substitute tofu or shrimp or fish for the chicken if desired. I like this with riced cauliflower and corn tortillas, or with blue corn chips and guacamole on the side and a green salad for adding this as a topping!
