This is a colorful and flavorful fajita filling served in hot, fresh flour tortillas. Absolutely delicious! And for those who are watching their carbs, it is just as good eaten with a fork without the tortillas!

Directions

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken breasts until the outside is golden brown, and the juices run clear. Salt the breasts to taste, then set aside.
  2. Cook the bacon in the hot skillet until it begins to release some oil. Stir in the onion, and bell peppers; cook until the bacon is crispy and the onions are transluscent. Stir in the tomatoes and mushrooms, and continue cooking until the mushrooms have softened.
  3. Slice the cooked chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces, then add to the skillet along with the cilantro. Stir to combine, and cook for a minute to reheat. Spoon into warmed tortillas to serve.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Tried this out tonight, loved it with some minor adjustments! Cooked the chicken with garlic/onion powder, pepper, and salt. Then followed everything else except instead of tomato and bacon. Used turkey bacon and a cup of salsa in place. Added a sprinkle of cumin, onion/garlic powder, and pepper. Put them tortillas with low fat sour cream and a bit of cheese..yum!! Will make these fajitas from now on!

I really liked this recipe as did my family. A word of advice: I sliced my chicken and fried them only a minute or two before adding everything else. Also, don't be skimpy with the bacon and spices, otherwise it will taste bland.

This is a very good recipe to use!!! Except... For a more authentic mexican flavor though, use salsa instead of tomatos(from a real mexican restruant), just regular smoked bacon instead of peppered. Use salt, cajun seasoning, fajita seasoning (Any will do), pepper, and a little chili powder for the chickens seasoning. And Use small tortilas not big burrito size, Then Wet them slightly, wrap them in foil, and sit them in the oven for about 8 mins. add onions too, even if you dont like them they really snaz up the flavor. Other wise leave everything else the same cause this is a pretty good recipe!!
