Spicy Chicken Fajitas

Our Spicy Chicken Fajitas are great for anyone who likes food with a bit more spice. And we’ve got just the thing to add that extra kick – our Chipotle Fajita & Taco Mix. It’s a tasty blend of chipotle and spices, all set for you to enjoy with your meal.

What do you need to make spicy chicken fajitas:

  1. Chicken. You can use breast or boneless thighs (or a combination of both), and cut into strips.
  2. Vegetables. Bell peppers and sliced onions are the typical vegetables used when making fajitas. Any colour of pepper and red and white onion can be used.
  3. Herbs and spices. Gran Luchito Chipotle & Taco Mix already has the perfect blend of spices to add flavour and heat to your fajitas.

Top tips when making fajitas:

  • Slice your chicken into thin strips to ensure quick and even cooking.
  • Cook your chicken over high heat, which is important to achieve a delicious char layer and browning of your protein.
  • Serve your fajitas with fresh garnishes and salsas on the side. Have guacamole, fresh coriander, salsa, diced onion and lime wedges ready to build your tacos.

Serve with our recipe for homemade guacamole and our Gran Luchito Soft Taco Wraps, for those who prefer a medium-sized tortilla this is perfect when making fajitas at home.

How to make it

  1. Heat olive oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the chicken strips and season them with the Chipotle Fajita & Taco Mix. Cook for 6 to 7 minutes, or until the chicken is browned.
  2. Add the onion and peppers to the pan and stir them to combine with the chicken. Cook for an additional 6 minutes on medium heat. Cover the pan with a lid and allow the chicken to cook through. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. To serve, warm the Soft Taco Wraps and heat them in a dry pan for a few seconds per side. Keep them warm wrapped in a tea towel. Serve the chicken fajitas with a squeeze of lime on top and coriander scattered over them. Assemble your tacos, and enjoy!
