Chipotle Chicken Fajitas               


1 Pound Chicken Breast

1 7oz can of Chipotle Peppers

3 Cloves of Garlic

1 Lime

¼ Cup Loose Cilantro

½ Tsp Salt

1 Package of Flour Tortillas (6 Inch)

Sour Cream and Salsa if Desired



4 Peppers Sliced

1 Large Vidalia Onion (sweet) Sliced

1 Jalapeño (if desired) Seeded and sliced

¼ Cup Oil

1 Tbsp Salt

1 Tsp Black Pepper

1 Tsp Chili Powder

1 Tsp Garlic Powder

½ Tsp Paprika

1 Tsp Oregano


Zest the lime and juice it too. Separate and reserve.  In a food processor, combine chipotle peppers, garlic, lime juice, cilantro and salt. Blend until smooth. Coat chicken with the marinade and lime zest. Refrigerate and hold for about 4 hours.

Combine seasonings for the veggies and set aside.

You can either grill, sauté or bake the chicken. Once cooked, slice into strips and hold hot. In a hot clean sauté pan, add veggies and oil. Season with spices and cook until tender (about 5 minutes)

With the tortilla open, spoon in the fillings and fold the tortilla. Add some salsa and sour cream ‘cause this one’s got some heat! Serves 6 two fajitas each

What a great idea - I'm always looking for a "light" lunch or EASY dinner. Sounds yummy and, again, right down our alley!
