Chicken Fajitas!

If you haven't figured out that we love Mexican food by now, you must not have been paying much attention! And let's talk about cheap and easy! The seasoning and veggies I needed for this recipe were cheaper than getting hot dogs and buns! I already had the other ingredients, so although ultimately it is more expensive than hot dogs... wouldn't you want to make the change for a little bit more money? I know we sure would!


2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into small strips
1 green bell pepper, sliced
1 onion of choice (red, sweet, yellow, or white), sliced
1 packet of fajita seasoning
Cheese, Sour Cream, Guacomole, or whatever you prefer

These are the directions from the back of the fajita seasoning packet (Western Family brand):

1. In large skillet, heat 1 Tbsp. vegetalbe oil; saute 1 onion sliced and 1 green bell pepper cut into thin strips until tender. Remove from skillet and set aside.
2. In the same skillet, heat 1 Tbsp. oil; brown chicken strips.
3. Add fajita seasoning mix and 1/4 cup water; blend well. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
4. Return vegetables to skillet to heat.
5. Use fresh, warm flour tortilla (8-10"). Place 1/2 cup filling on each tortilla. Serve with fresh salsa, sour cream, and guacomole.

*NOTE: We only used cheese for toppings. The mix is SOOO flavorful, you really don't need much else. If you don't like things to be very strong I would recommend sour cream.

That is so funny, that is exactly what I made for dinner tonight, but I used taco seasoning because it is what I had. Great minds think alike!
