The Best Fajitas You Will Ever Make
I love going to a Mexican restaurant and diving into the huge basket of endless chips and salsa while drinking margaritas upon margaritas. Some nights, however, I want to have a fiesta night at home. After making this batch of fajitas... I might be having my fiesta night at home more often. Claire... These are for you!
1.5-2lbs of chicken tenders 2 limes 1 mini can of tomato sauce 1 medium yellow onion 2 red bell peppers 1 green bell pepper 1 Orange bell pepper 1 yellow bell pepper 1 tsp cumin powder 1sp garlic powder (I was out of garlic powder so I used garlic lovers by flavored) 1 tsp chili powder 3 tsp of olive oil 1 packet of Truvia or just a 1/2 TBS of real sugar Salt and pepper to taste
Directions: -Cut up chicken tenders into smaller strips. Place in bowl. -Then add: garlic powder, chili powder, cumin, and salt and pepper -Add 3/4 mini can of tomato sauce and juice of one lime. -Last, add 1.5 tsp of olive oil. -Toss the chicken in marinade set aside.
-Turn the skillet on medium high heat and dump the chicken into a single layer.
-While cooking the chicken go ahead and cut up veggies.
-Chop 1 onion into thick slices then place in bowl. -Next chop all of your bell peppers into strips and place in the bowl with the peppers. I took the same seasoning I used on the chicken (garlic, cumin, chili and salt, pepper and literally but a dash of each on the veggies)
-Add 1.5 tsp of olive oil and remaining tomato sauce to veggies and toss well set aside.
-Once your chicken is fully cooked place in a bowl.
-Spray skillet with non stick spray and turn the heat down just a bit and begin sautéing veggies until soft and onions are translucent
-Once fully cooked add chicken back to veggie mixture and add the juice of 1 lime.
Take out of the skillet and you're ready to serve!
I garnished mine with sour cream, lettuce, avocado and cheese!!!
