These Grande Chicken Fajitas are a Southwest-favorite! The key to making these really flavorful is to start off with well-seasoned chicken, which is why we coat ours with lots of spices. Add in plenty of tender-cooked peppers and onions and you've got yourself the bare bones of a Tex-Mex restaurant classic. Now, go on and dig in!

What You'll Need

  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch strips
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 2 bell peppers, thinly sliced (any color)
  • 1 onion, sliced into 1/2-inch half moons
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 4 (10-inch) flour tortillas

What to Do

  1. Combine cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a large resealable plastic bag; add chicken. Seal and shake to coat.
     
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat 2 tablespoons oil until hot; cook peppers and onion 8 to 10 minutes, or until tender. Remove to a platter. Add remaining oil to skillet and cook chicken 6 to 8 minutes, or until no longer pink, stirring occasionally. Return vegetables to skillet; mix well. Remove from heat and stir in lime juice.
     
  3. Heat tortillas according to package directions.
     
  4. Spoon chicken mixture evenly down center of tortillas and roll up.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

My family recently requested fajitas so I gave this a try and I've already made it twice. Easy, delicious, and my house smells incredible while it's cooking (and even after!). I will certainly make this again soon!

I TRIED THIS RECIPES BUT I SWITCHED A FEW THINGS AROUND, BUT THE SEASONINGS ARE VERY GOOD! I WOULD MAKE IT AGAIN.
