Healthy Chicken Fajita

We’ve all been to those mexican restaurants before whether Chipotle, or Moe’s or one of those random… well kind of sketchy places that more than often result in someone feeling sick.

All of these places have developed a reputation as being unhealthy or bad for you.  In retrospect, they don’t have to be.

Easily, tacos and fajitas can be incorporated into a healthy diet.

For example… with this recipe 🙂

Now, this isn’t like baking.  The ingredients and measurements can easily be adjusted to your taste or standards.  You can also add whatever you want to the recipe.  For example, I know a ton of people like cheese… I hate it, so I didn’t add it.  I also know a lot of people don’t like tomatoes.  If you’re one of those people… don’t add them.  Simple. Easy. Good. Okay, let’s continue.

I used

1. 1 whole wheat tortilla

2. about 1/4 cup cooked skinless, boneless chicken breast

3. 1/4 an avocado

4. about 1 tsp fajita seasoning

5. lime juice*

6. cayenne*

7. black pepper*

8. garlic powder* (you can use regular garlic… I just didn’t feel like prepping it 🙂 )

9. a handful of spinach

10. a handful of kale

11. chopped up iceberg lettuce

12. about 6 grape tomatoes

*The amounts of these ingredients are really based on your taste.  Add as much or as little as you would like

Start off by mashing the avocado.

Stir in ingredients 4-8 until it’s to your liking.  Set aside

Take the spinach, kale, and chopped tomatoes, and place on top of your tortilla.

Set in the microwave for about a minute just so it can all cook down a bit.

Spread the avocado mixture, and then top with the chicken and iceberg lettuce.

Roll, and heat on a skillet on medium-high heat if desired.

I must admit I’m pretty pro at wrapping burritos… thank past experience of working at a mexican restaurant for that 🙂
