Celebrate Cinco de Mayo tonight with a Mexican meal that comes together in minutes. These chicken fajitas are so simple a child could make them! Chicken strips and chunky vegetables are tossed with a super quick marinade of chile powder, cumin, and water.
Then, the ingredients are dumped into a searing hot pan. Once cooked, serve with the usual fajita fixings — shredded lettuce, grated cheese, warm tortillas, spicy salsa, and cool sour cream. For the ultimate fiesta, pair with guacamole and margaritas. Get the recipe and read more. 1 teaspoon pure chile powder Serves 4.
