Fajitas

Why buy a seasoning packet from the store, when you can use spices that you likely have on hand to make your own?

Fajita Spice Mix

1 tablespoon chili powder

2 teaspoons white sugar

1 ½ teaspoons paprika

1 ½ teaspoons onion powder

1 teaspoon garlic powder

¾ teaspoon ground cumin

¾ teaspoon sea salt

½ teaspoon cayenne

Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl.

Fajita ingredients

  • ½ of a medium yellow onion
  • 2-3 bell peppers, any color
  • one chicken breast, cooked and thinly sliced
  • one tomato, cut into wedges
  • 6" flour or corn tortillas
  • sour cream
  • shredded cheese
  • chopped lettuce
  • avocado slices or guacamole
  • salsa

Sprinkle a little MCT oil in a large wok or skillet. Add onion and cook for two minutes. Add bell peppers and cook for three more minutes. Sprinkle with half of the fajita spices and stir to combine. Add sliced chicken breast, tomato wedges and remaining fajita spices. Stir to combine. Add a few tablespoons of water if the mixture looks dry. Continue stirring and cooking just until warmed through. Serve with tortillas, sour cream, shredded cheese, lettuce, avocado/guacamole and salsa.
