I don't know if it's the American cheese or the seasoning, but there's just something about this recipe that makes what I think are the perfect fajitas.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the chicken into small strips, none longer than two inches, about 1/4 inch thick.
  2. Combine fajita seasoning with water, vinegar, and lime juice in a small bowl.
  3. Marinate chicken in above mixture, covered and refrigerated, for a couple of hours.
  4. Cook marinated chicken strips in a wok over medium-high heat until brown (retain marinade). Use cooking oil to prevent sticking.
  5. Add green pepper and onion, and stir-fry for about 1 minute.
  6. Add remaining marinade, stir-fry until liquid "escapes".
  7. Spoon 1/4 of the mixture into the center of one flour tortilla and add 1/2 slice American cheese. Sprinkle with a dash of your pre-mixed fajita seasoning (do this for all four of 'em).
  8. Fold like a burrito with one end open and wrap in a 12x12 sheet of wax paper. Let sit 5-7 minutes.
  9. Microwave, still wrapped, 15 seconds each.
  10. Serve with picante sauce , pico de gallo, or other desired topping.

I made this tonight for dinner. Honestly I wasn't the biggest fan. They didn't seem to have much flavor which surprised me with all spices. I guess when you come from the land of Tex-Mex other things tend to be bland.

These are really good fajitas! Great flavor, I'll be doing these again.. I made more than 4 though, I used the whole pack of tortillas, since there was so much filling, so there's enough for the kids to nuke after school or whatever.
