Amazing Chicken Fajitas

We obviously love Mexican inspired dishes in my house. Here is a new fajita marinade that I made yesterday and the result was spectacular. Wow. 

Whisk together 1/2 cup of good Italian dressing, 1tsp cumin, 1/2tsp brown sugar, 1/2tsp black pepper, 1/4tsp salt, 1/8tsp garlic powder, and 1/8tsp chipotle seasoning. 

Pour marinade into a gallon size freezer bag and add 2-3 chicken breasts. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours (preferably overnight). Slice peppers (bell are fine, we used sweet peppers and the were divine!), mushrooms and onions. 

We grilled the veggies first on a griddle and then grilled the chicken. Let chicken rest for 5 minutes before cutting it diagonally into strips. 

Using fresh flour tortillas, layer in Greek yogurt, your chicken and veggies. 

Top with salsa, avocado, jalapeños, hot sauce, or whatever you prefer. Delish!

Salsa. No party is complete without it. 

Whether it’s football game days in the fall or barbecues in the summer, chips and salsa are another staple in our house. Want to impress your friends with a super easy restaurant style salsa? My husband used to always make this salsa for us, but now that I use it in my Ranch Enchiladas & Enchilada Casseroles, I’ve taken over. This one is always a huge hit!!💃🏻

~ 1 undrained can of original Rotel

~ 1/3 of a yellow onion, diced

~ 4-5 green onions, chopped

~ Handful of cilantro, chopped

~ Juice of a lime

~ Pinch of oregano

~ Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder, & Onion Powder to taste

Salsa Verde/Tomatillo Salsa

Curious about that tomatillo salsa I use in the Jalapeño Cilantro Cream Sauce? Here it is:

Salsa Verde or Tomatillo Salsa is super easy to make from scratch, and not only is it 100x tastier, it doesn’t have any added junk that you don’t need. Heat about 1 tablespoon of EVOO on high heat in a large skillet. Add in 1.5lbs of tomatillos (husks removed), 1 jalapeño, and 1/4 of an onion. Rotate them in the pan until each side is nice and caramelized (they will soften). Then put them in a food processor with 2 cloves of garlic, 1/2 cup of cilantro, and the juice of 1/2 a lime. Chill in the refrigerator. Voilà!
