2 yellow bell peppers, seeded and sliced into strips
2 red bell peppers, seeded and sliced into strips
2 orange or green bell peppers, seeded and sliced into strips
2 large onions (I prefer sweet onions), sliced
5 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Homemade fajita seasoning, divided (see recipe below)
2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
2 lbs fresh organic chicken tenders
8 corn tostadas
Garnish: sour cream, your favorite salsa, and sliced fresh avocado
For the fajita seasoning:
2 Tbsp cornstarch
4 tsp chili powder
2 tsp sea salt
2 tsp paprika
2 tsp sugar
2 chicken boullion cubes, crushed
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp cumin
How to make it
For the fajita seasoning: Whisk all ingredients together and divide in half for the recipe.
Heat grill and set to medium-high temperature.
Chop your peppers and onion and set aside in a bowl. Add 3 tablespoons olive oil, 1 tablespoon lime juice and half of the fajita seasoning to veggie mixture.
In a separate bowl, mix together chicken, 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 tablespoon lime juice and remaining fajita seasoning. Toss well to coat.
Grill mixture separately in a grill pan. Chicken takes about 4-5 minutes per side and pepper mixture takes a few minutes longer. Grill until peppers and onions are softened, stirring a few times while cooking.
To serve, top a corn tostada with peppers and onions, chicken, sour cream, salsa and fresh avocado.
