Ingredients

Homemade Fajita Seasoning:

  • 3 tablespoons chili powder
  • tablespoons smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt

Cilantro-Lime Sauce:

  • 1 cup full-fat Greek yogurt plain
  • 1 tablespoon homemade fajita seasoning
  • 1 clove garlic peeled and finely minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Fajitas:

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 red bell pepper sliced thin
  • 1 green bell pepper sliced thin
  • 1 yellow bell pepper sliced thin
  • 1 orange pepper sliced thin
  • ½ small red onion sliced thin
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 cups rotisserie chicken shredded
  • 2-3 tablespoons homemade fajita seasoning
  • ¼ cup chicken broth
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro roughly chopped
  • 3 green onions green parts only, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 head Romaine lettuce or other leaf lettuce washed and separated into individual leaves

Instructions

  • Prepare the fajita seasoning by combining all ingredients in a small bowl and stirring until thoroughly blended. Store any excess in an airtight container for later use.
  • Prepare the cilantro-lime sauce by thoroughly combining all ingredients in a medium glass or other non-reactive bowl. Cover and place in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the bell peppers, onion, and balsamic vinegar to the skillet and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cook for 10-12 minutes or until the onions and peppers are crisp tender.
  • Add the shredded rotisserie chicken, fajita seasoning, and chicken stock to the skillet and stir to combine. Cook until heated through and excess liquid is gone, approximately 3-4 minutes. Season with additional salt or fajita seasoning, if desired.
  • Remove skillet from heat and stir in the cilantro, green onions, and fresh lime juice. To serve, spoon mixture onto individual Romaine lettuce leaves and top with a drizzle of cilantro-lime sauce. Enjoy!
