Chicken Fajitas

A thing of beauty

So delicious looking

Two weeks ago, it was my first time to make a Mexican dish (Quesadillas), since it was a hit with the family I decided to try making another Mexican dish.  My friend Melicha, suggested Chicken Fajitas.  Using Google I found a simple enough recipe to follow.  As you can see from the pictures above it turned out beautifully and the best part it tasted great.  The Little Girl loved it so much she finished two whole servings and was asking if she could have more.

Melicha, thanks for the great suggestion. I also appreciate that you regularly read the blog, your feedback is much appreciated :)

Here is the recipe:
3 boneless, skinless chicken breast cut into strips, season with salt and pepper
3 slices bacon, diced
1 onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper chopped
1 cup tomatoes, chopped
8 large flour tortillas, warmed to soften

1. Heat a large skillet, over medium-high heat.
2. Cook the chicken breasts until the outside is golden, and the juices run clear.  Then set aside.
3. Cook the bacon in the hot skillet to release some of the oil.  Stir in the onion and bell pepper, cook until the bacon is crispy.
4. Add the tomatoes and continue cooking until they soften.  Add back the chicken, then add cilantro if you like.  Stir to combine and cook for another minute.  Then spoon over warmed tortillas to serve, top with garlic-mayo.

In my version I added chopped green onions and lettuce leaves for added crunch.
