Chicken Fajitas are delicious bundles of marinated chicken, onions, and bell peppers, wrapped in a warm flour tortilla! Top them with salsa, sour cream / Greek yogurt, and guacamole…and you have the perfect meal!
I will be honest with you, I was originally planning to make Paella for this month’s meal. Alex did not like that idea (I did ask his opinion) and he thought Chicken Fajitas sounded better. He practically lives at Poncheros, so I should have known the answer! This is also when the meal strayed into Mexican territory, and I could no longer call it a Spanish meal.
I pulled out an old Mexican cookbook, and these are the delicious results! I have never added cinnamon to fajita marinade before, but it definitely added a unique flavor…..
If you would like to make homemade tortillas, I’m sure they would be even more amazing!! These meals take a lot of research, so I don’t always have the time to make each individual component from scratch.
Did you know that David Lee Roth (Van Halen), Sammy Haggar (Van Halen), Tommy Lee (Motley Crue), Tico Torres (Bonjovi), Usher, Snoop Dog, Avril Lavigne and Eminem are all Libras? Okay, I was intrigued. There are plenty of actors as well, Heather Locklear, Jack Wagner, Will Smith, Hugh Jackman, John Lithgow, Carrie Fisher, Michael Douglas, and Catherine Zeta Jones and Simon Cowell. Okay, Simon is not an actor, but he is on TV.
It’s a very popular sign!! Libras are friendly, and fun to be around. They get along with just about everyone! Just don’t ever expect them to make a quick decision…it will never happen! Whatever decision they do make, will probably change by tomorrow.
