Ok, now for tonight's dinner! I didn't feel like putting much effort into dinner tonight so when I check my email and saw this recipe for Easy Salsa Chicken Burritos, I got inspired to make fajitas! Then I realized I didn't have "fajita" seasoning and didn't know how well taco seasoning would substitute so I did a little more research and found a recipe to substitute for fajita seasoning, SCORE! So here's how I did it....

1 red bell pepper (thinly sliced)
1 green bell pepper (thinly sliced)
1 onion (thinly sliced)
3 small chicken breasts (sliced into strips)
1 package fajita seasoning
cheese & lettuce for toppings (I don't like sour cream or hot sauce or any of that stuff, but if you do, by all means add it!)

In a large sauce pan or wok, heat about 1TBSP EVOO and add veggies and about 1/4 of the seasoning. Cook until slightly tender.

Remove the veggies from the pan. Season the chicken strips with the rest of the seasoning then add to the same pan (you may need a little more EVOO) and cook until the internal temp of the chicken reaches 165 degrees.

Combine chicken with the veggies and serve on a tortilla with the toppings of your choice!

Roll up and enjoy!

I will definitely be making these again!

For the fajita seasoning substitute, I used:
* 1 1/2 teaspoon Cumin ground
* 1/2 teaspoon Oregano dried, crushed
* 1/4 teaspoon Salt
* 1/4 teaspoon Black pepper ground
* 1/8 teaspoon Garlic powder
* 1/8 teaspoon Onion powder
* 1/8 teaspoon Red pepper ground (I actually used a little less b/c I don't like food spicy hot!)

Oh, and as I was setting this yummy dinner on the table, I looked out our back window and saw this

It was just through our backyard and across the street. Way too close for comfort! Thank God, I don't think it touched anybody or any houses!
