Chicken Fajitas

Wow! I can't believe I did a whole week without a dessert. I promise there is plenty of holiday baking coming up. These are a staple at our house. Simple, tasty, and Mexican, my favorite! I like to serve them with the Spanish rice in a rice cooker and black or refried beans on Costco's cook n serve tortillas, aka the best tortillas ever!

Chicken Fajitas
1 lb. or so of boneless, skinless chicken cup into bite-sized pieces (I like the tenderloins, and I usually use 5-6)
1 bell pepper sliced (I like it in strips,but you can dice it smaller if you want)
1 small onion, diced
1 packet taco seasoning
warm flour tortillas
sour cream
shredded cheddar cheese

Cook the chicken in a little olive oil in a saute pan. When the chicken is almost done add the onions and bell pepper. Once the onions are translucent and the peppers are cooked add the taco seasoning (I usually use between 1/2 and 3/4 of the packet.) Add about 1/4 cup water to help the seasonings evenly distribute. Cook until water is mostly evaporated. Serve in warm tortillas with a dollop of sour cream and cheese on top.

Costco's cook and serve tortillas? I've never heard of them. Are they sold by the breads?

They are in the refrigerated section, kinda by the milk. They come 44 to a pack, but I freeze them in gallon sized ziplocs in packs of 10 or so. Then you thaw them in the fridge. When you are ready to eat them you just cook them in a dry pan. So yummy!
