After getting a sudden craving for Mexican, I thought tonight would be the perfect tonight to make a homemade delicious Mexican feast! We cooked chicken fajitas with homemade guacamole and I must say, It came out awesome!! This is a paleo friendly meal -I try as much as I can to stick to a paleo diet -although once in a while I can indulge can’t I??? I consider those indulgences a “grey area”. Hey you need to treat yourself sometimes right??? right.
Anyhoo – I wanted to share with all of you this delicious paleo recipe for chicken fajitas..
2 Chicken Breasts sliced thin
(I first marinated the chicken breasts with a lime & cumin seasoning for a couple of hours)
1 Green pepper sliced
1 Red Pepper Sliced
1/2 a white onion sliced
After marinating the chicken breasts I cooked them in a cast iron skillet over the stove and added a homemade Mexican seasoning to add a spicy Mexican kick. I cooked each side of the sliced chicken so it was blackened on each side. This really lets the flavors sink in,
In a separate cast iron pan, I added the peppers and onions. Added salt to taste, as well as a few dashes of the homemade Mexican seasoning I used for the chicken – not too much though, just enough to give them a good flavor.
I wrapped the corn tortillas in a paper towel and put them in the microwave for 25 seconds – just long enough to get them warm.
and WAH-LAA delicious chicken fajitas.
I added fresh salsa and a homemade guacamole to the tortillas and it tasted so good!!
I highly recommend homemade cooking – It saves you money AND you can make things to your tasting and experiment 🙂
