Fajita Chick

I like to cook, but more importantly I enjoy cooking and then eating the food that I create.

One of my absolute favs are fajitas. I have come to realize that no matter what I put in them, they still manage to be deliciously satisfying. A friend of mine recently asked for my recipe and as I wrote up the recipe, I thought it would be a good idea to clog about it. So here it is! Enjoy :D

What you'll need:
1 lb boneless chicken meat (could use steak if desired)
1 tomato
2 red onion slices (too much onion is too much!)
1 green bell pepper
1 clove of garlic
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 package of Lawry's Fajita spice (available at Vons in regular and spicy)*see other spices for substitutes)
2 tbspn olive oil
1 package corn/flour tortillas
*sour cream & salsa are optional but HIGHLY recommended!

To begin:
Cut chicken into small, chunky pieces--bite size is best, brown in skillet using 1 tbspn olive oil. Cook thoroughly and then add half of lawry's seasonings to chicken as well as a 1/4 of water, I usually only add half of the package because it can get pretty strong. Add in cut up cilantro (fresh is always better), half a cup is perfect. Continue to cook and allow to simmer in spices and cilantro. Add crushed clove of garlic for bolder flavor while browning the chicken.

While waiting for chicken to simmer, cut up veggies into likable portions.

Using a separate skillet:
Using 1 tbspn Olive oil, sauté the onion and green pepper on pan for a few minutes while chicken is simmering on low heat.

Take chicken off heat and drain access juice. Add sautéed bell pepper and onion to pan with already cooked chicken. Add in tomatoes and keep on heat for a minute. Pair with tortillas, put on a salad or just eat by itself, and you're done :D

Some spices/extras I use sometimes just to add more flavor:
ground cumin: Indian spice, but super secret ingredient for all delicious Mexican food. A few pinches is all you'll need
ground cayenne pepper: really hot, but adds that extra spicy kick
ground chili powder: adds for a chipotle flavor
lime/lemon: great to use a slice of lime or lemon to squeeze on top of chicken or grilled veggie
