Chicken Fajita Taco Pasta Gluten & Dairy Free

Oct 26, 2021

Loved this Chicken Fajita Pasta dish. I got the basic recipe from Kollie @fitfoodbound. It looked amazing and I couldn’t wait to try! I did make a few changes by making it dairy free. Here’s how it came together:


Prep time: 20 minutes

Cook time: 30 minutes

Total time: 50 minutes

Servings: 6

Cuisine: Mexican




  •   119 g (1 medium), Red Bell Pepper, Raw sliced
  •   200 grams, Orange, Raw sliced
  •   400 gram, Onion sliced
  •   6 oz, chickpeas rotini
  •  1 2 oz, Boneless Skinless Ckicken Thighs
  •  1 2 oz, Chicken Tenderloins
  •  Dairy Free Cheese Sauce recipe here


The Process:


  •  I sliced and sautéed in a tsp of coconut oil 1 small red bell pepper, one small orange pepper, and 1/2 a red onion.
  •  I air fried 12 ounces of chicken thighs and 12 ounces of tenderloins with my own taco seasoning (you can use a packet or make your own too!), then sliced/shredded.
  •  In the meantime I boiled one 8 ounce box of @banza rotini chickpea pasta.
  •  I also made a DF cheese sauce with Nutritional Yeast, Lite Coconut Milk, Arrowroot powder, onion and garlic powder, & salt and pepper. I let it come to low boil and simmer until thickened.
  •  I added the chicken to the veggies, then added 6 ounces of the noodles (reserving a serving from my one child who only likes plain noodles.), I added a few more teaspoons of taco seasoning (per taste), and lastly I mixed in the cheese sauce. 
  •  I topped mine with cilantro and salsa!
