brand new recipe number two

Chicken Fajitas! 

Gates made chicken fajitas tonight, using this recipe.  We were planning to have a fajita salad, so we left out the green bell peppers.  The chicken and onions were quite good with baby greens, fresh spinach, tomatoes, avocado, green onions, salsa, and a bit of cheese. 

Our only complaint is that the fajita marinade was a bit too the fajitas had a sauce of sorts that was not ideal for the salad.  But, this recipe was purportedly developed by an eight year old (!), so I guess we did pretty well.

I liked having the spices come together from the spice rack rather than buying Fajita seasoning at the store, mainly because I am familiar with all the ingredients. 

For comparison, here's the list of ingredients in one brand's fajita seasoning packet:  maltodextrin, spices (including black pepper), salt, onion, garlic, corn syrup solids, caramel color, lime juice solids, citric acid, natural flavors, and modified corn starch.  That just seems unnecessary, when the spice mix is not particularly difficult to create. 

So, two recipes down...three to go!
