Description

Just like the fajitas you would get at a Mexican restaurant. They are sizzling. They are delicious. The only thing that could make them better is if we could make them at home. And now we can!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE SEASONING:
  • ½ teaspoons Chile De Arbol Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Crushed Red Pepper
  • ½ teaspoons Chipotle Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Chile Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon Oregano Molido
  • 2 teaspoons Rio Grande Chili Blend
  • 2 teaspoons Onion Powder
  • 3 teaspoons Ground Cumin
  • FOR THE CHICKEN:
  • 4 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 pound Chicken Breast Or Thighs
  • 1 whole Medium Onion, Diced
  • 4 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 1 bunch Fresh Cilantro, Chopped
  • 1 cup Water (or Juice From Black Olives)
  • 1 whole Juice Of Lime
  • 1 dash Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • 1 whole Red Bell Pepper
  • 1 whole Yellow Bell Pepper
  • 1 whole Green Bell Pepper
  • 1 package Flour Tortillas, 8-10 Count

Preparation

Whisk all of the homemade seasoning ingredients together in a bowl. Set aside.

Heat olive oil in a large frying pan over medium high heat. Cut chicken into strips and place in frying pan. Once the chicken is no longer pink (but still is not done), add onions, garlic and cilantro. Stir and continue to cook. After onions are nice and soft and chicken is fully cooked, add water (or olive juice) and lime juice. Add homemade seasoning mix. Stir and continue to simmer, stirring occasionally. At this time you can also add diced bell peppers, if you want to. Add salt and pepper to taste. Chicken is done when still juicy but excess juice has cooked down.

Place chicken in warmed tortillas. Add lettuce, cheese, salsa, etc if desired.

Homemade seasoning is perfect as taco seasoning for one pound of ground meat as well!
