Fajitas are also a great way to incorporate veggies into a meal.  Besides peppers and onions, mushrooms and squash are also great additions.  Get creative with what is in season!

Serves 4

INGREDIENTS:


2 LBS. CHICKEN BREAST TENDERS
3 BELL PEPPERS, seeded and cut into strips
1 YELLOW ONION, peeled and cut into strips
2 AVOCADOS, pitted and sliced
14.5 OZ. CAN OF FIRE ROASTED TOMATOES WITH GREEN CHILES
CAJUN SEASONING
BUNCH OF CILANTRO, chopped
OLIVE OIL
1 PACKAGE OF WHOLE WHEAT TORTILLAS

 

PROCEDURE:

Place chicken in a large bowl, season with Cajun spices. Cover and place in the refrigerator while you prep the vegetables.
Set a grill on medium-high heat.  In a large cast iron pan over medium heat, add a glug of olive oil.  
When oil is just starting to smoke, add peppers and onions.  While they are cooking, place the chicken on the grill and cook for 8-10 minutes or until done.  Meanwhile, sprinkle some Cajun seasoning on the peppers and onions and add the can of tomatoes.  When the peppers are just starting to soften, remove from heat and sprinkle in some cilantro.  Place the chicken on the wrap, top with the pepper and onion mixture and finish with avocado and more cilantro.
