Ingredients

  • 12 small flour tortillas
  • 2 medium onions
  • 1 lb chicken breasts boneless and skinless
  • 2 medium bell peppers any color
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp fajita seasoning
  • 1 cup Mexican cheese blend shredded
  • 1/4 cup butter melted

Instructions

  • Clean and chop up the onion into long strips. Slice the peppers into long thin strips. Clean and slice the chicken breasts into long thin strips and place in a bowl.
  • Add a tbsp of the fajita mix to the chicken breast and mix well.
  • In a large skillet, heat 1 tbsp of the butter and add the chicken to it. Cook the chicken for 5 to 10 minutes until it's fully cooked and no longer pink, and it's slightly charred, but not burned.
  • Remove chicken from skillet, and wipe the skillet clean.
  • Add the other 2 tbsp of butter to the skillet and heat it up. Add the onion and cook for a couple minutes until it's slightly translucent. Add the peppers and the fajita mix and mix well. Cook for a couple more minutes so the peppers cook slightly. Add the chicken to the skillet, mix with peppers and onions and cook for a minute.
  • Preheat oven to 400 F degrees. Lightly butter a baking sheet with the melted butter, I used a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  • Lay a tortilla flat and top some chicken fajita mixutre then top with some cheddar cheese, about a tbsp or two. Tightly roll up the tortilla and place it in the baking dish. Brush with melted butter. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
  • Bake for about 15 minutes or until tortillas are nicely golden brown.
  • Serve with salsa and/or sour cream.
