Chili Lime Chicken Fajitas start with marinated chicken breasts, peppers and onions that are stuffed into a flour tortilla and end with fresh toppings.
The fajitas get there flavor from the marinade I use on the chicken breasts, Chicken Fajita Marinade Mix. You marinade the chicken breasts for 3 hours or more, then they are grilled to sear in the flavor and juices.
Along with grilling the chicken, you grill peppers and onions on high heat. I think this is a very important step, having a high enough temperature to cook the vegetables quickly so they still are a little firm when you add them to your fajita.
For toppings, I use avocado, limes and cheese. Feel free to add in guacamole, sour cream or fresh tomatoes. Add your favorite toppings, the possibilities are endless.
I hope you have enjoyed my week of Mexican recipes to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, which is celebrated on Monday, May 5th. Mexican food ranks high on my list of favorites, I hope you enjoy the recipes as much as I do.
