Delicious Habanero Chicken Fajitas
Although Fajitas are widely popular throughout Mexico, especially in the North, they actually originated in Texas; making them a staple of Tex-Mex gastronomy. But despite their american origins, Fajitas have become one of the main dishes in the typical Carnes Asadas (Cookouts) of the homes of northern Mexican families.
In family gatherings, the smell of your fajita tacos would be enough to make you sit down and eat at once. So for this recipe, we wanted to recreate this familiarity. After all, there is no better feeling than a warm flour tortilla in your hands. We created a simple Chicken Fajitas recipe with an extra to really level it up. A dash of Habanero powder will be the topic of conversation at your next Carne Asada. The fruity and smoky flavor of the habanero made our chicken fajitas have the slightly sweet and spicy taste that kept everybody returning to the kitchen for more. We hope you like it!
Habanero Chicken Fajitas
3 bell peppers (green, red and yellow)
2 chicken breasts
2 tbsp of fajita mix seasoning
1/2 tspn of Ole Rico Habanero Powder
1 jalapeno pepper
Salt to taste
Let’s start by cutting our bell peppers and ½ an onion in thin slices.
You can go ahead and cut your chicken breasts in long pieces too.
Heat up a large pan with olive oil and once it’s hot add in your veggies. Cook for a couple of minutes before adding your chicken.
Once you added your chicken, go ahead and sprinkle your Fajita mix seasoning and ½ tsp of your habanero powder (feel free to add as much as you want. WARNING: it’s hot!) and mix. Continue stirring until fully cooked.
For your avocado salsa, dice ¼ an onion, 1 tomato, and 1 jalapeno pepper. Cut your avocado in cubes and slice some cilantro. Put everything in a bowl and add some lime juice and salt to taste. Mix it all together.
Heat up your tortillas and make your tacos. Add the avocado salsa on top.
