These spicy chicken fajitas are sure to hit the spot.
I love cooking for my fiancé and planning meals for us, but cooking for two often proves to be difficult. If I don't make a plan, I end up running around in circles at the grocery store and wasting half the ingredients I've bought (and I hate wasting food). Enter What's Cooking This Week - my meal plan and grocery guide. This way, I can make the most of my ingredients and my leftovers.

Last week, kimchi was used in both Crispy Bibimbap and a Kimchi & Bacon Grilled Cheese. This week, homemade pico de gallo and guacamole top both Chicken Fajitas and Spicy Black Bean Burgers.

Here's the rest of the plan:
