Chicken Fajitas


I make these chicken fajitas at least 2 times a month. This is one of our favorite dinners.

The ingredients below don’t necessarily tell you how much you should have because it all depends on your preference, you decide. I’ve listed the ingredients I personally like.

Get creative, add some of your other favorite ingredients. Peppers, onions, etc.

Flour tortillas (soft taco size)

1 Tbsp Olive oil


1 to 1.25 (approximate) lbs chicken

1 packet Lawry’s fajita seasoning

Shredded sharp cheddar

Pace salsa

Sour Cream


Put 1 Tablespoon of olive oil in skillet & heat. Add chicken and cook well.

When chicken is thoroughly cooked, chop or shred. I prefer to cut it with my kitchen scissors into little chunks.

Add packet of seasoning and mix with water as directed on packet. Mix well.

In a separate skillet, melt a pad of butter and spread around. Keep your burner on medium heat.

Put your tortilla in your skillet and cook until its slightly golden or starts to ever slightly stiffen and flip over.

Sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese on top while still in skillet. While the other side of the tortilla is cooking, this will melt the cheese nicely.

Once the cheese starts to melt, place tortilla on your plate to start topping with your other ingredients.

Then place some of your chicken in a row down the middle of your tortilla, making sure you have enough room on the bottom and sides to fold over.

I personally love Pace salsa, a little light sour cream and some slices of avocado to make the perfect fajita for me.

Once you have your toppings on, first fold up the bottom, to keep ingredients from falling out when eating.

Then fold over each side and enjoy! YUM I tell you, these are delish!

Now you could just slap your ingredients in an uncooked tortilla, but I prefer them warm and slightly crisp. It just gives it that extra tastey UMPH.

Hearty Taco Lasagna

 Here’s a hearty dish that is sure to please almost anyone in your life who likes a little Mexicana flava.

We eat mexican a lot in my house.

Friday nights G1 & I love to visit the Mexican restaruant up the street, they serve the most delish Margaritas!

Anyone have a good home-made Margarita recipe??? Please share!

 I’ll trade you a taco lasagna recipe (batting eyelashes)


2 lbs ground beef

2 pkgs of taco seasoning (1.25 oz each)

2 teaspoons minced garlic

4 – 5 flour tortillas

1 Can refried beans

1 jar salsa

1 cup sliced yellow onion

Sour cream

4 cups mexican shredded cheese or cheddar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Chop onion

Brown beef in skillet, drain.

I actually use an old coffee can to drain the grease into.

 Put beef back in skillet & Cook with onion & garlic for a few minutes.

 Add taco seasoning to beef mixture in skillet & stir well. 

Add a layer of tortillas to the bottom of a 11×9 (or a 13 x9) baking dish, make sure the tortillas overlap slightly. I tear them to make straighter edges.

Use 1/2 of the can of beans & schmear a layer on top of the tortillas.

Then add a layer of salsa, less than half a jar,

Then a layer of the hamburger mixture (aprox half)

Slap some sour cream on top,

Add 2 cups of cheese

Repeat another layer starting with Tortillas:

Cook in oven for about 35 minutes.


If you would like something to serve witht this, I suggest a side of The Best guacamole EVER with some chips and you’ll have a tasty meal!

This will feed a decent number of people or if you are just feeding a few, you will have leftovers for the next day or so & not have to cook tomorrow! (Yessssss!)
