Monday Mealtime…Chicken Fajita

Today’s Monday Meal is Chicken Fajitas. This is my go to favorite meal of all time!


  • Ortega Salsa (mild, medium or hot- totally up to you!)
  • 2 lbs chicken (thin sliced)
  • 3 peppers (green, red, and yellow- I like colors give your dish some pizzazz)
  • 1 onion
  • Sour cream
  • Cheese (I am a fan of the already shredded Mexican Blends)
  • Fajita shells


  • Chop up the peppers and onions. Cut into slivers.
  • Sauté the peppers and onions in olive oil on low. Peppers and onions are done when they are soft and the onions appear translucent- about 20 minutes.
  • Cut the chicken into strips and cook in a frying pan over medium high heat with a little Olive Oil. Cook until the chicken turns white, about five minutes.
  • Put the entire jar of Ortega Salsa in the frying pan and cook for an additional 10 minutes.
  • Wrap the fajita shells in a paper towel and put in the microwave for 10-15 seconds.
  • Roll the chicken, peppers, onions, cheese, and sour cream up in the fajita shell.


This dish feeds my family of five with some leftovers to spare.
