Chicken Fajitas

Turn up or turn down the "heat" of these fast'n'easy tortillas by adjusting the amount of jalapeno pepper you add.

Servings 
4

Ingredients 

1/4 cup fresh lime juice
2 teaspoons chili powder
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1 pound Gold'n Plump® Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast Portions, cut into 1/2-inch by 1/4-inch strips
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 red bell pepper, cut into 2-inch by 1/4-inch strips
1 green bell pepper, cut into 2-inch by 1/4-inch strips
1 onion, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon minced jalapeno pepper, or to taste
12 (6 or 7-inch) flour tortillas

Instructions 

Combine lime juice, chili powder, garlic, pepper, and ground cumin in medium bowl. Add chicken strips and toss; set aside for 5 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Heat oil in sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add bell peppers, onion, and jalapeno pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, for 4 minutes or until peppers are crisp-tender. Add chicken mixture with lime juice marinade; cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes or until chicken is thoroughly cooked and vegetables are softened. Taste and adjust seasoning.

Place tortillas between 2 paper towels. Microwave on high for 15 to 20 seconds, or until moist and warm. (Otherwise, wrap tortillas in aluminum foil; heat in a 350°F oven for 10 minutes.)

To serve, place warm tortillas on plate; cover to keep warm. Spoon chicken-vegetable mixture into bowl. Assemble fajitas as you eat by spooning some of chicken mixture into center third of each tortilla and rolling sides.

Tips 

When handling jalapeño peppers, wear plastic gloves!
