Currently I would call myself a purist when talking about food.  I am trying to eat less processed and more natural foods, and cooking from scratch a little more.  I love my food to have a lot of flavor, but most pre-made seasonings have a lot of fillers and preservatives in them to give them a longer shelf life.  So I thought I should try to make my own, and it is pretty delicious!  This recipe makes about 3 recipes at a time so I don’t have to make it every time we want fajitas.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

1 Tbsp paprika

For the fajitas you will need:

1/3 of your Seasoning mix

2 Large Chicken Breasts

4 large Flour Tortillas or 8 Corn Tortillas

1 Tbsp Olive Oil

1/2 Onion, chopped in strips

1 Red Bell Pepper, chopped in strips

1 Avocado

1/2 cup Salsa

Directions

  1. Saute 1/2 onion and 1 red pepper in 1 Tbsp olive oil until desired crispness is achieved (about 5-10 minutes).  Move to a bowl and keep warm.
  2. Cut the chicken breasts into strips and rub 2-3 them with the fajita seasoning, and cook in the same skillet. Cook until no longer pink in the middle, about 10 minutes.
  3. Add chicken and sauteed vegetables in a flour tortilla (12″) or 2 small (6″) tortillas.  Top each 12″ tortilla with 1/4 avocado, cilantro, and salsa.  Enjoy your 30 minute meal!
