My family absolutly loves these and although it takes a little time (not energy), its totally worth it.

1-2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts (or beef works to)
1 green bell pepper
1 red bell pepper
1 yellow bell pepper
1/2 small onion (yellow or white)
1 tomato seeds and juices squeezed
2-3 Tbsp. olive oil
Fajita seasoning packet

Sour cream

-Cut chicken into thin strips and cook through. I recently tried grilling them on the BBQ and it worked great! Set aside when cooked through.
Chop all veggies into thin strips. Cut tomatoes into wedges making sure that most of the juice has been squeezed from them. Add olive oil to large, deep skillet and heat until hot. When oil is hot add all the veggies and cook until tender. This takes around 20 min. or so. Remove veggies and set aside. Put chicken back in skillet and add fajita seasoning packet with approx 1/4 c water then put veggies back into skillet with chicken and simmer for approx 5-10 min or until seasoning is well blended. Serve on tortillas with sour cream, cheese and salsa. (Check here for homemade salsa recipe) Dinner is on!

**I am cheap, so unless I am serving this for company, I only buy green bell peppers. The other colors are too expensive!
