Chicken Fajitas Recipe

We love Mexican food in my house. One year we had the chance to go camping for couple months in the South of US and we did eat our share of Mexican meals. When doing Mexican at home we like that we can choose our toppings and we all end up with something different in our plates. Taco nights are always popular, never met a child that did not like it. 
Are you having a special night during the week for Mexican food like Taco Tuesday or Fajita Friday? If not, you should start because they are fun and your family will enjoy them. You can even feed vegetarians on Mexican nights, think beans they are so good in fajitas. And with the help of Old El Paso your dinner will be ready in no time. A great tip is to prepare a big batch of ground beef that you cook with the taco seasonings in advance, freeze the meat in containers and when you are in a hurry all you have to do is reheat the meat in the microwave. You can do the same thing with beef strips or chicken, they are so yummy in fajitas.

If your meat is ready, when you get home prepare the fixings, place them on the table and everyone can make their own taco or fajita. Kids like to be creative and help with making their own food. 

To do something different sometimes we have salmon in our tacos with coleslaw and it is delicious. My son will request it once in a while. 

For my Fiesta Friday I made Chicken Fajitas. They are simple to prepare. Here is the recipe:

Chicken Fajitas

500g Boneless, Skinless Chicken
15 ml vegetable oil
2 bell peppers, sliced
1 onion, sliced
50 ml water
1 Old El Paso Fajita Dinner Kit
Shredded Cheese for topping
Sour cream, optional

Slice chicken. Heat oil in a large pan over medium-high heat until hot. Add chicken strips; cook and stir for about 5-7 minutes until completely cook and no longer pink in the centre.

Stir in peppers, onion, seasoning mix and water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer uncovered 3 to 5 minutes until vegetables are tender crisp, stirring frequently.

Warm Tortillas: Heat oven to 350F. Remove tortillas from package and wrap stack in foil. Bake 10 minutes.  You can warm them in the microwave also: place on a microwaveable plate. Cover tightly with waxed paper. Microwave on High for about 1 minutes or until warm.

Place everything on the table and your family can prepare their own fajita. That is the fun part!
