recipe share

this is one of our all time favorite recipes. i think i say that about all of the recipes i post :-). i guess i just post our favorites.

chicken fajitas

3-4 boneless/skinless chicken breast
1 red pepper
1 orange pepper
1/2 of an onion
3 zucchinis sliced
1 pkg. of taco seasoning
2 tablespoons of oil
1/2 c. water
1 can of corn (drained)
1 can of black beans (drained)
1 tsp. on chili powder
1 c. salsa
flour tortillas

3-4 chicken breast cut into bite size chunks
1 pkg. of taco seasoning
2 tablespoons. of oil
1/2 c. water

place chicken, seasoning, oil and water in a zip-loc bag & marinate for at least 2-3 hours.

In a skillet that has been sprayed with pam, place all vegetables together & cook on medium heat for about 5 minutes(until tender)
remove from stove & place in another bowl.
spray your skillet again & place your chicken in & cook until no longer pink.
once your chicken is cooked, put the veggies back into the skillet with the chicken.
add chili powder & salsa. stir.
add corn & black beans. stir.

serve on warm flour tortillas & garnish with cheese, sour cream & guacamole.

**raimi's notes:

- i cut the chicken & veggies into chunks/wedges, bit sized pieces.
- i always marinate the chicken the night before.
- i use lawry's fajita seasoning. i don't like the mccormick brand(tastes funny).
- our family loves the uncooked (we cook them) tortillas from costco -yum.
- the fajitas are even better the next day for lunch...i'm just saying.

Sounds so good Raimi. We actually almost made fajitas for dinner tonight, but I'm glad we didn't because I want to try your recipe!
