What makes these Chicken Fajitas tastes terrific?

The flavor comes from a combination of several ingredients including lime juice, lime zest, olive oil, cilantro, garlic, chipotle in adobo sauce, cumin, oregano, and salt for the marinade.   To layer the fajitas you will need, red onion, red and yellow bell pepper, avocado, Mexican cheese, salsa, and flour tortillas.

What will you need to make these Black Beans extremely delicious?

A combination of chili powder, onion powder, cilantro, Rotel, and sugar makes the black beans flavorful.   What makes these easy is using can black beans.

Mexican Food

I am a big fan of Mexican food which is easy to prepare and always full of flavor.  This includes these fabulous Chicken Fajitas.  They do have a lot more ingredients than most of my recipes especially my Mexican food, but they are worth it.  Most of the ingredients in these fajitas are for the marinade which is too good to describe.

If you love Mexican food, you should try making some of my other favorite recipes for a Mexican feast.

BLACKSTONE GRIDDLE IS THE BEST!

When recommending a product, I only recommend products I use and love.  This includes my portable Blackstone Griddle.  It was purchased to use while we are camping, but we loved it so much it stays in our backyard most of the time.  It is portable and folds up in a nice carrying case.  I cannot tell you enough how it makes the best burgers and steaks.  They are fabulous, and so are these chicken fajitas.  

If you would like to know more about this Blackstone Griddle, please see this previous post where I go into details about the features.  You will also see a fabulous BBQ Bacon Burger recipe.
