Chicken Fajita Pie

The Chicken Fajita Pie, who would have thought you would ever hear those words in the same sentence. This dish is a little bit like a Mexican lasagne, with layers of spicy fajita filling between tortillas, and then covered in cheese. Sounds delicious doesn’t it, and for less than 500 calories, it won’t break the calorie budget. If your calories don’t stretch that far for an evening meal, why not cut it into 6 portions instead of 4, and each portion will come in at 328 calories, and you will have a couple of portions left for lunches.
