Chicken Fajita Rollups

Try your fajitas with a twist next time with these fajita rollups. Sometimes, I know I have already had enough grain servings in a day, but might want something like fajitas for supper….this is the perfect solution. Don’t get me wrong though, there is nothing wrong with your traditional fajitas in a tortilla shell. Remember, it is all about moderation! Just try to choose whole grain wraps.
