EVER BETTER™ Healthy Fajitas Recipe


Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 2 (8 oz) boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips (or grass-fed beef, or fish, or shrimp)
  • 2 Tbsp. canola oil (or grapeseed oil), divided
  • 1 large bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 organic corn tortillas

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl or 1-gallon resealable bag, combine the lime juice, Worcestershire sauce, and seasonings. Add the chicken and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, up to several hours.
  2. In a large skillet, heat 1 Tbsp. oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken to the skillet and sauté until cooked through, about 4 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a plate.
  3. Add the remaining 1 Tbsp. oil to the skillet. Add the peppers and onions and sauté until slightly softened, about 5 minutes. Add the chicken back to the pan and heat for 1 minute.
  4. Warm the tortillas in a dry skillet or in the microwave. Place 2 tortillas on each plate and divide the fajita filling mixture evenly between the tortillas.
