Fiesta Fajitas from Scratch

You can make these yummy fajitas with chicken or beef- your choice- they are quick and easy and a real crowd pleaser! This recipe was borrowed from my sis- Danika Stokes! I love this recipe because you will most likely have all the spices in your cupboard already- so no seasoning packet is need!

2 lbs. chicken or beef, cut into long, thin strips
1 red bell pepper, cut into long, thing strips
1 green bell pepper, cut into long, thin strips
1 red onion, thinly sliced
1/2 cup water
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. cumin
2 TBSP salsa
2 cloves garlic
salt & pepper to taste 
**Optional toppings: grated cheese, sour cream, guacamole, cilantro...

 Heat up your frying pan with a little olive oil, then add your meat (chicken or beef) until browned. Set the meat aside on an extra plate while you heat up a little more olive oil and cook your bell peppers and onions, adding your seasoning, garlic, and water and salsa. Mix it around, add your meat back to soak up the flavors. Let simmer for 5 minutes uncovered. Warm up your tortillas, dish some fajita yummies onto the tortilla, add your toppings and enjoy!

Serve with: I serve these fajitas solo sometimes, they are really filling and it makes a lot. You could serve them with some black beans, spanish rice, or a side salad if you're an over-achiever.
