Recipe by ChipotleChick
I made this the other day when I was trying to use up some frozen fajita vegetables. My husband begged me to write it down and make it again, since I tend to never make the same thing twice. I have put in instructions if you prefer to use fresh vegetables. I have seen a copycat recipe for Emeril's Bayou Blast cajun seasoning on this site, so if you can't find it at the store, use that. We like some kick, so if you aren't a huge fan of spice, cut the amount of Bayou Blast to taste. The leftovers were great for breakfast with scrambled eggs!
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, rinsed and patted dry
- 4 medium russet potatoes
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 (8 ounce) packagefrozen fajita vegetables (or 1 fresh red or green bell pepper and 1 white onion, sliced)
- 1 tablespoon emeril bayou blast seasoning
- 8 small tortillas, warmed
- sour cream, to garnish
- salsa, to garnish
- shredded cheddar cheese, to garnish
