You can add in green chiles, green onions, red pepper flakes, fresh cilantro, hot sauce, or jalapeno peppers for an extra burst of spicy Mexican flavors.

You could add cooked cauliflower rice to the casserole dish for an even heartier low-carb taco casserole or stir in tomato sauce to mimic a Mexican rice casserole.

Another add-in idea that my family enjoys is pouring this salsa verde into the casserole before baking.

This salsa can be made in a food processor and instead of allowing it to cool, you can pour it right into this recipe before baking.

I've been slowing cutting my carbs each day hoping to get down to the desired count of 25g. These fajitas will make the low-carb life more bearable. I could probably eat these three times a week and not burn out.
