Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Prep and cook the vegetables

  • Peel and thinly slice enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
  • Remove the stem, ribs, and seeds from the bell pepper; cut the pepper into ¼-inch-wide strips.
In a large frying pan over high heat, warm 2 teaspoons [1 TBL] oil until hot but not smoking. Stir in the onion and cook until just starting to char, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the bell pepper, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to char and soften, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan.

2

Prep and cook the chicken

  • Cut a small corner from the chicken packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel. Season with salt and pepper.
In the same pan used for the onion and pepper, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the chicken and cook, stirring once or twice, until lightly browned but not yet cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the Southwestern salsa, bring to a simmer, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
While the chicken cooks, prepare the garnishes and heat the tortillas.

3

Prep the garnishes; warm the tortillas

  • Cut the lime into wedges.
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro.
On the stovetop directly over a flame, or in a dry medium frying pan over medium heat, warm the tortillas, turning once, until just pliable and warmed through, about 30 seconds per side. Transfer to a clean kitchen towel, cover, and keep warm.

Serve

Set out the tortillas, chicken, onion and pepper, lime wedges, cilantro, and yogurt and invite everyone to assemble their own fajitas.
