Easy Recipe: Fajitas and Spanish Rice

We had these saturday evening after being at the pool for the afternoon. They were very easy to throw together and so tasty!




Fajitas 

ingredients:
Olive oil 
2 chicken breasts, sliced in thin strips
2 peppers (I used orange and red), sliced in thin strips
1 large onion, chopped in large pieces 
Taco seasoning (I use a mixture of chili powder, cayenne, cumin, salt, and garlic powder- combine to your taste for spice)

corn tortillas 

toppings
We used avocado and greek yogurt, but it would also be delicious with lettuce and tomato

directions:

Chop onion, peppers and chicken. Add olive oil to a hot pan. Saute onion and chicken until chicken is almost cooked through. Top with seasonings and mix. Add Peppers, cook until heated through. 

Serve in corn tortillas with desired toppings. 

Serves 2 with plenty of left overs!


Spanish Rice

ingredients: 
Olive oil
1/2 onion
1 T chopped garlic
1 can diced tomatoes
1-2 T of taco seasoning (see above for ingredients- mix depending on your taste for spice)
1 C brown rice
1/2 C water (or more depending on what type of rice is used)

directions:
Saute onion in olive oil until translucent. Add garlic, continue to saute for another 30 seconds. Add remaining ingredients. Follow instructions on rice for cooking times. 

**all ingredients can also be placed in a rice cooker without sautéing onions as well but you may need to add more water 


Enjoy!
