I keep an eye on my smoke detectors when I cook these fajitas, but they’re worth a little unexpected excitement if you’re having friends over for dinner. Chicken marinated in lime and seared on the stovetop until juicy and delicious perfectly rounds out tortillas filled with shredded cheese and grilled peppers and onions.
To speed things up you can sauté the peppers first, while the chicken is marinating. They’ll have a little less chicken-y goodness, but if you’re hungry, you won’t miss it.
We make these fajitas all the time at home, but the pinnacle was grilling the chicken over a wood fire on our last vacation with friends to Big Bend National Park. I’ve never been so proud of a meal.
Serve with charro beans.
This is actually a recipe for yoga mat cleaner, but the original instructions said it could also be used as a room spray. We started using a spritz or two of “happy spray” in the air in Leo’s bedroom whenever he had trouble falling asleep, and now it’s part of his bedtime ritual. You’d usually opt for something less energizing than ginger at night, but the happy factor can’t be beat.
