Chicken Fajitas

Mexican food has rich or spicy dishes that is easy to make. One of my favorite is the chicken fajitas. I have my own way of cooking it according to my kids preference. They don't want to see big chunks of vegetables, so I cut them as small as possible and not too spicy. Here is  my version of chicken fajita.

  • 1/2 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2  cloves  garlic, minced
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 to 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar Cheese
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 5 flour tortillas, warmed
  • sour cream


  1. Heat the oil in a nonstick skillet and cook the garlic, chili, onion, salt and pepper for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  2. Spray skillet with cooking oil. Saute garlic  and onion on medium-high heat, add the chicken. Cook for 5 minutes. Stirring constantly.
  3. Add the salsa and peppers. Cook until chicken is done and vegetables are crisp-tender.
  4. Heat the tortillas.
  5. Spoon 1/4 cup each chicken mixture and cheese center of each tortilla. Fold in  to enclose filling. Arrange in the baking dish, sprinkle with grated cheese. Bake until the cheese just melts.
  6. Serve with the sour cream. chopped cilantro and lemon.
