Fajitas

My goal here was to make a tasty fajita without having to use one of those packages of powdery spice mixes. I did not get what I was going for, so if you have any suggestions, please send them my way.
I am going to go ahead and include the recipe so you can see what I did and then you can help me from there. Thank you!!!

Ingredients:
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 T lime juice
1/4 tspn. salt, divided
1/8 tspn. pepper, divided
2 T sour cream
1 1/2 tspn. fresh cilantro
1/8 tspn. ground cumin
1 small onion, thinly sliced
1 tomato, chopped
Tortillas

Instructions:
Preheat broiler.

Place chicken in a shallow dish and sprinkle with lime juice. Season with 1/8 tspn. salt and pepper and let sit at room temperature for ten minutes.

Whisk sour cream, cilantro, cumin and 1/8 tspn. salt in a small bowl.

Place the onion and the chicken on a lightly oiled cookie sheet and broil for 3-5 minutes. Stir onion and turn chicken over. Broil chicken and onion for 3-5 more minutes or until chicken is cooked through. (The onion may get done before the chicken.) When chicken is done, cut into thin slices on a cutting board.

Assemble tortillas with chicken, sour cream mixture, tomatoes, salsa, cheddar cheese…whatever you like to put on your fajitas.

Did I change anything? I added green peppers that I just sauteed in a skillet with some onions. You can’t have a fajita without green onions. 🙂

What did the family think? I think everyone thought they were just okay. Not as much flavor as we would have liked. Any suggestions?

  1. I have found a fajita marinade on allrecipes that came out well. Just watch the cayenne pepper. Some of the marinades are crazy spicy.
