Who doesn’t love fajitas? I love all Mexican food, but I really love fajitas. What I want to avoid is the calories that come with all of those tortillas and cheese and sour cream.

Although there is nothing more I would love to do after I leave the kids belts office, than go to our favorite little Mexican restaurant and order fajitas, I won’t. I’ll be true to my new healthier lifestyle, and I asked Jen (my resident cheerleader/assistant/nutritionist) for advice and low and behold, she had a recipe to share!

Chicken Fajita Salad

2 Cups Shredded Romaine Lettuce
2 Tbsp Salsa
1/2 Cup Green & Red Peppers Strips
1 Cup Slicked Onions, raw
1 Tbsp Daisy Light Sour Cream
1 Oz Cabot 75% Light Vermont Cheddar
3 Oz Chicken
2 Cloves Garlic
1/2 Tbsp Chili Powder
1/2 Tsp Cumin
3 Tbsp Lime Juice
Fresh Cilantro
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
Lite Salt & Pepper to taste

Directions (serves 1):

Slice onions and bell peppers. Cut chicken into strips. Spray your saute pan with non-stick spray. Heat pan and add chicken strips. Season chicken with chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper. While the chicken is cooking, shred the lettuce and the cheese. When chicken begins to change color, add in onions and peppers. Continue to saute until the chicken is cooked thoroughly and onions and peppers are wilted. Add in garlic and mix completely. Place lettuce on a plate and add the chicken mixture. Top with salsa, sour cream and cheese. In a separate bowl, whisk the lime juice, olive oil, chopped cilantro (to taste)  and a little salt to taste and then dress the salad!

Yummy! This was so good and light, but also very filling. This makes a huge salad and is totally satisfying. You could add a little guacamole and crumple a few tortilla chips over the op for some crunch. However, it’s delicious without the additions.

I hope you enjoy!
