First of all thank you to one and each of you that helped me yesterday with Matt’s present.

He had a HUGE smile on his face when he saw how many new pageviews he got on his video.

We really  believe I have the best readers out there…

Lucky Me!

 

Today I am sharing with you what we had for dinner a couple of nights ago.

This is one of my family favorites!

 

These fajitas are simple to make and DELICIOUS.

You are going to love the fresh flavor and how beautiful they look.

 

RECIPE

This is what you’ll need:

1/4 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

1/4 Cup Snipped Cilantro or more ;)

1 tsp. finely shredded lemon or lime peel.

2 Tb. Lemon or Lime Juice.

1 tsp. Chili Powder.

1/2 tsp. Ground Cumin.

1/2 tsp. Pepper.

12 Ounces skinless, boneless chicken breast.

 

Flour Tortillas.

Cheese and toppings of your choice.

 

1

Marinade

Combine oil, cilantro, lemon peel, lemon juice, chili powder, cumin, and pepper.

Rinse and slice the chicken in strips. Add chicken to marinade, turning to coat.

I let my chicken chill for about 1 hour.

At this point the chicken will look like this…

 

 

2

Drain the chicken, reserving marinade.

Grill it for about 10 to 15 minutes or until chicken is tender and no longer pink, turning and brushing once with marinade.

If you don’t have a grill you can cook it in a pan. Do not add oil since the marinade already has some.

Time to EAT!

To serve on each tortilla, arrange chicken strips, cheese, black olives, sour cream, lettuce, beans, and whatever you like.

Roll up the tortilla, tucking in the sides. Serve with Guacamole and fresh salsa.

 

 

GUACAMOLE

Peel and mash the avocado.

Stir in half of a chopped tomato;  about 2 TB of finely chopped white onion; 1 tsp chili powder and 1 tsp. garlic powder;

lemon juice and salt to taste. Let it chill for a few minutes.

 

Fresh Salsa

 

Chop 1 tomato, half of a green pepper, half of an onion and cilantro.

I like to shred some jalapeno. Add as much as you would like.

Garlic powder, salt and the juice of half to a full lemon.

Mix together and let it sit for a few minutes…

SO GOOD!

 

I hope you love them as much as we do!

See you later at 6:30 pm during the Show Me EXTRAORDINARY Link Party!

Happy Wednesday!
