Chicken Fajitas

For some reason I have been on a spicy kick, and can't get enough of recipes with a little punch to them. So far this past week we have had Quesidillas, Fajitas, and Chili. For right now I will share my fajitas recipe and later this week I'll post the yummy chili I made. When I went to the supermarket to pick up a few items that I needed I noticed that Jospeh's my husband' s favorite brand of Pita bread also made tortillas, made with flax, oat and wheat. I thought we would give them a try and we loved them.  Once again I have no pictures, one camera is lost the other isn't working.... I will have it up and running this weekend and will post with pictures again soon!! Promise...

Fajita Seasoning Mix

  • 3 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 2 Tbsp. chili powder 
  • 1 Tbsp. salt
  • 1 Tbsp. paprika
  • 1-1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin

Combine all of the ingredients in a small bowl. Pour into small glass or plastic container, seal tightly and store in a cool, dry place. Makes the equivalent of 3 packets of commercial or purchased Fajita Seasoning Mix. 

Chicken Fajitas
Items Needed:
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, sliced in thin strips
