Chicken Fajitas

Not going to say that Mrs J has been nagging me to make these, but she has mentioned it a lot.  Iasa asked me the other day what I used for fajita seasoning and I really didn’t have a good answer.  I’ve been using various powders more on a whim than than by any plan.  Seemed like a good time to do some Googling. I looked at a few recipes and they were similar enough I ended up choosing this one more for it’s placement on the results page than the star rating.

I used 2 tablespoons of the mix, plus 2 tablespoons of water, along with a dash of lime juice for a marinade.  Sliced 2 chicken breasts and soaked them in it for a couple of hours in the fridge.  When it came time to cook the meal I sliced some green peppers and an onion.  Start some oil in a pan, and toss in the marinaded chicken pieces.  Give them a few minutes and then add the veggies.  When done, array some on a tortilla and add whatever toppings sound good to you.  I had some jalapenos, tomatoes, black olives, sour cream, ancho sauce, salsa, green onions, some cheese sauce and some shredded cheese all set out on the table along with a bag of nacho chips.  A few lime wedges to squeeze on the assembled fajita are nice.  The lime juice perks the flavors quite a bit.  Nearly forgot I had some guacamole made.  Remembered too late to get some into the main round of pictures, but I still had room so I made up a plate of nachos.  Yummy every time.
