Serving tip: Set out bowls of salsa, sour cream, guacamole, minced scallions and diced tomatoes to top these flavorful fajitas.
Recipe Ingredient Details:
2 tablespoons olive oil (divided)
1 pound chicken strips or tenders
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 small serrano pepper (seeded and minced)
3 tablespoons lime juice
1 medium yellow bell pepper (cored, seeded, and cut into strips)
1 medium green bell pepper (cored, seeded, and cut into strips)
1 small red onion (halved and sliced into 1/4-inch half moons)
1 cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro
4-8 8-inch whole-wheat tortillas
Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a medium skillet. Sprinkle fajita strips with cumin and chili powder; transfer to skillet and sear on both sides. Add serrano pepper and lime juice; cover and cook until chicken is tender and cooked through, stirring frequently, about 5 minutes.
While chicken is cooking, heat remaining olive oil in a small skillet and sauté bell peppers and onion for 5-7 minutes, until just tender. Stir in cilantro. Season vegetables and chicken with salt and pepper.
Transfer vegetables and chicken to a warm serving plate. Warm tortillas in microwave for 10 seconds each. Top with chicken, vegetables, and desired garnishes.
