Say hola to the weekend with this exciting and flavorful dish. Quick-grilling chicken breasts are coated with a mixture of lime juice, cumin, and chile powder. Poblano chiles, bell peppers, and red onions are charred on the grill alongside the chicken.
Bring the chicken and veggies to the table on a large platter and let everyone assemble their own fajitas. Chill some Coronas or shake up a couple of margs and you've got yourself a Mexican fiesta!
