Looking for a healthy, easy dinner recipe to make tonight? I got one for you. Chicken Fajitas! This is a dish that you can make over and over again. If you're not into chicken, you can make it with steak, shrimp, tofu, you name it! Feel free to make it with whatever sides you'd like, but I typically go with guac, rice and beans, salsa, cheese and sour cream.
1 Red pepper
1 Yellow pepper
1 Orange pepper
1 Yellow onion
1 Package of mushrooms
2 Pounds of thinly sliced chicken
1 Packet of Old Paso Fajita Seasoning mix
1/2 Cup of water
1 Can of black beans
1 Box of white rice
Guacamole (2 avocados, half of a tomato, 1 onion and Lime juice)
Salsa (in a jar)
*Serving Size: 4
Thinly slice peppers, onions and mushrooms. Spray Pam or olive oil in pan. Sauté for approximately 10 minutes.
Chicken: Slice chicken into thin pieces. Spray Pam or olive oil in separate pan. Add chicken and cook for 10-15 minutes (or until fully cooked and tender). After 10 minutes add in fajita mix + a half cup of water. Let simmer for 2-3 minutes. Add veggies to the chicken dish. Stir all together.
Guacamole: Add two avocados, half of the tomato and half of the onion to a bowl. Mash and then add 4 squirts of lime juice. Mix and salt as needed.
Rice & Beans: Follow instructions on rice box and then once fully cooked, pour in the beans (do not drain bean juice. It will give the rice a nice flavor). Salt as needed.
Cheese: If you do not have already shredded cheese, slice/chop thinly and then put in small bowl to serve.
Salsa: Put in small bowl to serve
Tortillas: Heat up in microwave for 25 seconds (place paper towel on top while in the microwave so they don't get soggy).
Once everything is ready, you can put all of the ingredients in a tortilla or make a little fajita bowl on your plate.
