Today’s Menu: Chicken Fajitas w/ Refried Beans

 

 

Chicken Fajitas Refried Beans 011

Not much going on today, very laid back. Did a small load of laundry and ran the sweeper. It’s so much easier to vacuum since I bought the Hoover Cordless Lightweight Vacuum! It only weighs about 10 lbs., Cordless, and has as much power as a normal size vacuum. Great investment! Had everything done early so it’s Couch Potato, Remote, and Football for the day. For dinner tonight it’s Chicken Fajitas w/ Refried Beans.

 

 

 

 

The other night I had Shrimp Fajitas and they were just so delicious I decided to have Chicken Fajitas for dinner tonight. I used Ortega Fajita Skillet Sauce for my Fajita Sauce Base, I love using the Ortega Sauces. To prepare I’ll need the following; the Ortega Fajita Skillet Sauce, a bag of Simple Truth Chicken Fajita Strips, Delallo Tri-Color Pepperazzi Spicy Sweet Peppers, Chopped Jalapeno slices, Daisy Reduced Fat Sour Cream, fresh Shredded Sargento Asiago Cheese, and Mission Flour Tortillas. Same ingredients as the other night except a different Ortega Sauce and I’m using Chicken instead of Shrimp.

 

 

 

 

First time using the Simple Truth Chicken Fajita Strips. This is a fantastic item to have in the fridge or freezer. They’re 99% Fat Free, already Seasoned, and cook up in 6-8 minutes. They came out well seasoned and the strips are nice and meaty.

I heated up a tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a medium size skillet over medium heat. I started by slicing the Sweet Peppers into strips and adding them to the skillet, stirring them and cooking until tender (about 4 minutes). Stirred in the Chicken Strips and sliced Jalapenos, stirred this for about 6 minutes. Then added the Ortega Fajita Skillet Sauce, cooking another 3 minutes till everything was heated through. Heated up the tortillas in the microwave for 20 seconds and topped them with a dab of the Daisy Reduced Fat Sour Cream and the Chicken Fajita Mixture. I also topped it some fresh grated Asiago Cheese, and served. I keep packets of the Ortega Skillet Sauces in stock, it makes on delicious Fajita! Had a nice heat to it but not overpowering and the taste of the Ortega Sauce is incredible!Served with a side of Old El Paso Fat Free Refried Beans. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.
