YUM! ~ Chicken Fajitas
Is it too soon for another recipe? This one is really good tho so I just have to share. It’s late… I’ve been downtown and back reading lusty love books… yes you know the ones… I’m sad to have finished such a wonderful love story but… that’s for another time. Time to share. Cuz it’s yum yum in my tum tum! Chicken Fajitas I’d say this makes 6 servings? I use the big big big giant size flour tortillas tho… 4 chicken breasts cut in thin strips 1 green pepper cut in thin strips 1 red pepper cut in thin strips 1 orange pepper cut in thin strips 2 jalapeno peppers cut in thin strips 1 white onion sliced in half and then in thin slices, seperating the half rings 8 cherry tomatoes sliced in half lengthwise now the rest… I eyeball and adjusts to taste. Here is my approximate guess on the measurements 2 Tbsp cornstarch pinch of sugar 2 tsp salt 1 tsp garlic 1/2 tsp chipotle powder 2 tsp chili powder 1 tsp cumin juice of 1/2 a lime 1/2 C of water 3 Tbsp oil 2 C Pepper Jack/Monteray Jack Cheese 2 C cheddar cheese 4 C cooked white rice flour tortillas Heat 1 Tbsp of oil in a frying pan fry up the chicken till no longer pink. Once the chicken is cooked: add in the onions cover and fry for 2 minutes add the peppers fry for 2 minutes add the tomatoes fry for 2 minutes add the juice of lime I find adding the lime juice to the chicken and veggies enhances all the flavors and gives it some bite. Feel free to add more or omit completely. Your call! In a bowl mix the cornstarch, sugar, salt, chipotle powder, chili powder, & cumin, with the water and the remaining 2 Tbsps of oil. Gently whisk together till fully blended Cook on medium heat till the sauce thickens. Heat tortillas in the oven. in a line across the tortilla: add a bit of the cheeses then the rice then the chicken and pepper mixture fold the sides in and then from the bottom up, wrap the toritilla around the filling. Heat a small amount of oil or spray oil in a pan and fry till brown and crispy on both sides. serve with sour cream and salsa! Enjoy! I didn’t take a picture of the finished product cuz we were to hungry… I will take a picture tomorrow.
