Fajitas De Pollo/ Chicken Fajitas

¡Feliz Cinco De Mayo! 

I don’t know about you but I’m a huge fan of Tex-Mex food! I haven’t gotten the chance to visit Mexico yet, but I’ve had Mexican friends cook authentic for me so I know the difference between the two.

In spirit of today’s celebrations, I’ll share my favorite fajitas de pollo recipe: 

Ingredients: 

1lbs chicken breast (skinless) 

For the chicken marinate (2-24h prior to cooking): 

2 ts fresh lemon juice + virgin oil

2 garlic cloves (minced)

1/2 ts: salt, black pepper, ground cumin, chilly powder and sliced jalapeño, chopped cilantro 
Other ingredients:

2-3 green + red peppers (long cut)

2 onions (sliced) 

4-6 tortillas (I prefer whole grain)

Nothing more appetizing than raw chicken 🤘🏼

Directions: 
Cut the chicken in strips and place it in marinate, refrigerating  for 2 to 24 h prior to cooking. 

Place the chicken and left over marinate in a medium sized frypan set on medium heat. When the meat whitens, add the veggies into the mix. 

Keep an eye on it, stirring every 2-3 minutes for about half an hour.

Eventually, your food should start looking something like this: 

Warm up your tortillas, crack open a Corona and kick back! 

When you think about it, someone being able to make chicken fajitas is a pretty impressive thing. As you see it’s not hard at all! 

¡Salud!
