To make this delicious low carb chicken fajita casserole you will need:

  • 2 pounds (900g) Chicken Breasts (fully cooked & shredded)
  • 2 cups Shredded Cheese (Cheddar / Monterey Jack)
  • 8oz (225g) Cream Cheese

🌟 Making Keto Fajita Casserole

Follow these steps to make the perfect keto chicken fajitas casserole:

Step 1

Start by preheating the oven to 350F (175C), and greasing a casserole dish (I use 9×13 inch, or 23×33 cm).

Step 2

Place a large skillet over medium heat. Add the butter and allow it to melt.

Then, add the onions and peppers and cook them until they are softened. Remove the skillet from the heat.

Step 3

Add the shredded chicken, seasoning, 1 cup of cheese, and cream cheese. Mix well and then transfer to the casserole dish.

Step 4

Add the remaining cheese on top of the casserole, and bake for about 30 minutes.

Freezing

You can defiantly freeze this keto chicken fajitas casserole. Just wrap it up tightly or place it in an airtight container.

You can also freeze in individual portions for easy lunch or dinner meal prep. When you’re ready to eat, just reheat in the oven or microwave until heated through.

The texture does change a bit once it’s frozen and reheated, but it’s still absolutely delicious!

Using Different Meat

In my opinion, this casserole tastes the best when chicken is used. However, you could easily substitute the chicken for another type of protein such as beef or pork.

Just make sure the meat is cooked through and tender before adding it to the casserole.

A trick you can use to make beef and pork extra tender is to marinate it for a few hours in baking soda.

Just mix 1 teaspoon of baking soda in water, and coat the meat in the mixture. The baking soda will help to tenderize the meat and make it extra juicy.

Cream Cheese

One of the reasons this keto fajita chicken casserole is so creamy and delicious is that it contains cream cheese.

It’s very important to use high-quality and full-fat cream cheese for this recipe in order to get the best results.

If you make this low carb fajita casserole with low-fat cream cheese it won’t be nearly as rich and creamy.

In fact, it may even be a bit watery. So, be sure to use full-fat cream cheese for the best results.

Cheese

To make this keto chicken fajita casserole I used Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese.

But, you can also use different cheeses like Mozzarella, Colby Jack, or even Pepper Jack. Combine different cheeses to create your own keto fajita casserole!

I hope you liked my chicken fajita keto casserole! This recipe is easy, tasty and perfect for a low carb or ketogenic diet.
