Cilantro Lime Fajitas

This is so yummy, fresh, and easy!  It makes lots for leftovers or if you have some friends over.  Such a great spring/summertime dinner!

Serves 6


1 Cup chopped fresh cilantro
3/4 Cup olive oil
5 Tbsp fresh lime juice
2 1/2 Tsp cumin
1 1/4 Tsp ancho chili powder
6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
3 Large poblano chilis, seeded and cut into strips
3 Large yellow bell peppers, seeded and cut into strips
2 Med red onions, slivered
12 large soft tortillas (whole wheat optional)

Optional Toppings:

Sour cream
Shredded Cheese

To Make:

Mix all top ingredients in a bowl (cilantro, olive oil, cumin, chili powder, lime juice).  Cut raw chicken into strips and put in a tupperware, or freezer bag with half of the marinade.  Place all the sliced veggies in a tupperware or freezer bag with the remaining marinade.  Marinate at least one hour.  In separate pans, saute veggies and chicken until chicken is fully cooked and veggies are tender.

Spoon into tortillas and top with shredded cheese, salsa, guacamole, sour cream, chives, jalepenos, tomatoes, or whatever you desire!
