I am a big fan of meal prepping when life is busy. Especially when it is with food that I truly love and am excited about eating. For this recipe, I purchased all of my ingredients at Walmart. I love Mexican-style food so much and recently got the idea to make chicken fajita meal prep bowls for easy meals through the week for when I went back to work after my maternity leave. When I am short on time especially, I do not want to spend a lot of time cooking. I want to spend time with what matters the most to me: my family! That is why this meal is perfect. It is ready in just 20 minutes and is perfect for leftovers and meal prep.

I debated on whether to grill the fajita ingredients, to pan fry them or to make them on a sheet pan. I would honestly switch it up using those three different methods depending on the time of year and what I am feeling like that day. Since it is currently hot out, I decided to grill the chicken and peppers for this meal so I wouldn't heat up my house. Plus, there is nothing like the way that the grill makes your food taste.

You can customize these however you like. If you prefer pinto beans to black beans, use those. Feel free to use tofu, pork or beef instead of chicken. Add tomatoes, onions, avocado, cheese or other toppings as desired. Pro tip: make the rice ahead of time and freeze in sandwich bags for rice that is ready in 3 minutes- even when it is frozen!

I love having these for an easy lunch or dinner. You can make them for dinner one night and package up the rest into containers for quick lunches on the go. Or you can add them to your weekend meal prep and get them ready to go for all week. With back-to-school coming up before you know it, these would be great for those busy school days. My daughter loves this meal and so do I. They are great for parents lunches or for kids.

For this recipe, I used my favorite jarred salsa: Pace® Salsa which is made with handpicked vegetables. I have been loving it for many years and like how it is not watery, it is full of flavor and I like the medium version for some spice. I picked up some Prego® Italian Sauce that is simple and easy to use for any home cook, and also V8 Splash® which can be found on the juice aisle. These products are great for having on hand for busy days for back to school.  


I love making my easy 3 Ingredient Chicken Parmesan with the Prego® Italian Sauce which is a blend of sweet and savory Italian flavor. My husband likes drinking V8 Splash® with dinner. I picked up this strawberry lemonade version for summer. Walmart has lots of ingredients for easy weeknight meals.
