Leftover Chicken or Beef Fajitas With Fresh Guacamole

Total Time

I used leftover Marinated Chicken With Cumin, Garlic & Lime in this. If your leftover chicken meat isn't very Mexican tasting, you might want to rub it with some cumin powder & chile powder first, or even some Mexican seasoning.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a shallow dish, whisk together soy sauce, vinegar, corn syrup, hot sauce, and pepper. Add leftover meat strips, bell peppers and onion and toss to coat.
  2. Set a large greased stove-top grill pan over medium-medium high heat.
  3. Grill meats and veggies 5 to 7 minutes, drizzling any remaining juices over the top, until vegetables are cooked to your liking and meat is heated through.
  4. Transfer mixture to a serving platter.
  5. Meanwhile, warm tortillas in the microwave or according to package directions.
  6. To make the guacamole, in a zip-top bag or medium bowl, mash avocado lightly.
  7. Then add tomato, garlic, lime juice and cilantro and combine.
  8. Season, to taste, with salt and black pepper.
  9. Serve fajitas with guacamole, some sour cream, and salsa on the side.

I made these using the leftover marinated chicken as suggested and they were very tasty. I did not get a chance to make the guacamole though as my avocados went south before I could make the recipe and I didn't have time to run out and get more. I served with sour cream and salsa and with spinach tortillas. These were even better the next day. Thanks for sharing a quick and easy meal!
