Show your Valentine some Sizzle with these Chicken Fajitas

In our house nothing says love like some fajitas! We love Mexican food and this is an easy and fast recipe for this family favorite. We use either corn tortillas or Food For Life makes a wonderful brown rice tortilla or just add the fajitas to some lettuce for a yummy salad. Don’t forget the guacamole and homemade salsa (find these recipes by clicking on them).
Enjoy!


Chicken Fajitas
Serves 6



2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1½ teaspoons cumin

1 red, yellow or orange pepper, sliced
2 green peppers, sliced
2 medium onions, sliced
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Go to the website, http://www.foodforlife.com/
at the top you will see a button, store locator and you can take it from there. Or if your allergies allow it, corn tortillas are great too.
