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!

Ingredients:

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 flavorgod)
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
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!!!
