Lime Fajitas

This is one of my go-to recipes. We eat it all the time because it is SO GOOD! The lime gives it such a fresh, live flavor. You'll want to increase the size of the recipe depending on how many you're serving, since the version here only serves my husband and me.


2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 T. oil (I usually use canola)
1/2 packet Italian dressing seasoning
juice of 1 lime
half an onion, cut into rings (a red onion gives nice color)
half a bell pepper, cut into strips

Combine these six ingredients and marinate for about an hour. Cook on a George Foreman grill. (If you don't have one, you could always grill the chicken and saute the veggies. Or cut the raw chicken into slices and cook in a frying pan, followed by the veggies.)

Once chicken has been grilled, slice into strips. Season with salt and pepper.

Warm up refried beans and flour tortillas. Layer the tortillas with refried beans, sliced chicken, grilled onions and bell peppers, diced tomatoes, sliced avacado, grated cheese, sour cream, and cilantro. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, and squeeze more lime juice onto each serving.
