How To Make Fajitas

Directions: 3

1. In a resealable plastic bag, mix together the chile powder with the salt, cumin, onion powder, garlic powder, cornstarch, water and 2 tablespoons of the oil. Add the chicken, bell pepper and onion, seal and knead gently to coat. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil until shimmering. Let the mixture out of the bag into the skillet and cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are crisp-tender and the chicken is softened and cook through, about 6 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the lime juice.
3. Spoon a portion of the mixture down the centre of each tortilla and serve with lettuce, cheese, salsa, sour cream and lime wedges.
