Spicy Lime Fajitas

Two nights in a row this weekend, N and I made fajitas. The first night we made beef fajitas and cheated, using an Old El Paso fajita mix. The second night we decided that since we had all the ingredients still, we would try to make our own chicken fajitas. The marinade was a bit of an invention and the result was spicy, lime-y goodness. This is a really, really easy and fast meal and very tasty as well. 



Spicy Lime Chicken Fajitas

2 chicken breasts, sliced
1 bell pepper
(You could use onions too)
Soft tortillas

Marinade:
2 whole limes, juiced (so excited that I got to use my "new" old fashioned juicer)
1 tbsp. chili powder
1 tsp. ground cayenne pepper
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 tsp. sugar
Pepper

Mix ingredients together and pour over sliced chicken strips in a plastic bag. Let marinate in the fridge for 20 minutes (or more). 

Cook chicken in a frying pan or skillet on medium/med-high heat. Once chicken is almost fully cooked, turn down heat a little and add sliced peppers (and onions if using). While the chicken is cooking, heat tortillas in the oven on 400.

Assemble fajitas with your choice of toppings:
Cheese
Lettuce
Hot Sauce
Salsa
Sour Cream
Avocado
