The throw-together quality of chicken fajitas makes the meat dish so popular. While you will find the usual suspects here, including avocado, bell pepper, and onions, we threw in cumin to infuse the olive oil’s flavor, plus ground smoked habanero, one of the hottest spices available. Cooked in our Margherita wood-fired oven, the combination of all these ingredients makes these fajitas muy caliente
