Chicken Fajitas

I think I've been in a Mexican food mood lately. These fajitas are an easy and quick meal to whip up. My kids of course aren't huge fans of the green pepper, but oh well they just pick them out.

Chicken Fajitas

4 chicken breasts, pounded flat and cut into finger width strips
2 tablespoons canola oil
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 cup lime juice
1 red onion, sliced
2 green bell peppers, cut into strips
1 teaspoon taco seasoning

sour cream
shredded cheese
diced tomatoes

Pound chicken and cut into finger width strips. Heat canola oil in a large skillet. Add chicken and stir fry it until it is white all the way through. Add peppers and onions to the chicken and stir fry till tender. Sprinkle with cumin, salt, chili powder, and lime juice while vegetables are cooking. Once vegetables are tender enough (check peppers to make sure they aren't too crunchy) sprinkle with taco seasoning and stir around. Serve hot with warm tortillas and toppings of choice.
