3-4 chicken breasts
2 bell peppers
1 small onion
2 T oil
about 3 T taco seasoning, or to taste

1.  Cook peppers and onion in 1 T oil just until tender.  Remove from pan and keep warm in microwave.  Cook chicken in remaining oil (when I'm thinking ahead, I put the chicken in the crock pot on low a couple hours before dinner.  Then when it's time to cook the chicken, it is easy to cut up.  I put it in the oil, add the seasoning and water; this makes it very tender).  When no longer pink, add seasoning and about 1/3 cup water.  Bring water to boil then simmer until water is gone.
2.  Add peppers and onion back to chicken.  Serve on tortillas.  Garnish with sour cream, guacamole, cheese, salsa, tomatoes, cilantro, or whatever you like.

As a side note, there is special seasoning just for fajitas.  We like that too, but I just keep on hand a big bottle of McCormick Taco Seasoning.  I use it in any recipe that calls for taco seasoning and it saves money from buying multiple seasoning packets.  Plus, we like it.

*This is one of our regulars--when I don't know what to cook, we have fajitas.  Easy, delicious, and I almost always have the ingredients on hand.  To add color and taste, use a variety of bell peppers (red, green, orange, yellow).  We made these tonight with Homemade Flour Tortillas.  See also Beef Fajitas.
