Let’s face it. You can’t have fajitas without peppers. We think that the peppers are what makes a fajita truly sensational. Right now in all of our stores, we have some amazing selections of red and yellow peppers. This week’s blog is going to focus on the peppers that make fajitas awesome, but we also love them in homemade pico de gallo, in pesto fettucini, or stuffed for a tasty appetizer.
We ran across this recipe for chicken fajitas that looks perfect! So tonight if you’re looking for an easy dinner, this is the one to try! Enjoy!
2 chicken breasts, sliced
1 red pepper
1 yellow pepper
1 red onion
1 chili, finely chopped – more if you like it spicier
1 t oregano
1/2 t chili powder
1/2 t smoked paprika
1/2 t cumin
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
Juice of half a lime
Place the sliced chicken into a bowl, add the spices, chili, garlic, and lime juice and mix well. Marinate for 1 hr. Meanwhile, slice the peppers and onions thickly and set aside. Heat oil and fry the onions and peppers for 5 minutes until browned. Remove from the pan and set aside.
Add more oil, allow the pan to heat up once more and fry the chicken for 5 minutes or until almost cooked. Return the vegetables to the pan and fry for a couple more minutes to heat them through and finish cooking the chicken. Serve with tortillas, sour cream, grated mature cheddar, salsa, and jalapeños.
