If you love Tex-Mex food as much as we do, you know that it’s not always so friendly on the waistline. Today, we’re making Taco Tuesday a little healthier with this flavor-packed recipe for classic Chicken Fajitas. Instead of using a pre-made spice mix, Kelli blends her own with cumin, chili powder, cayenne, and more, perfecting a balance of smoky and spicy flavors. As she recommends, you can easily make a big batch of this homemade fajita seasoning and store it in the cupboard to use at a later time. The spice mix is dusted on top of lean strips of chicken breast and sautéed until tender then loaded into your choice of corn or flour tortillas with peppers, onions, and your favorite toppings.
“ I work wonders & create fresh, seasonal meals in my 20 square foot kitchen. While I have a huge sweet tooth, healthy cooking and eating are the core to maintaining my active lifestyle. ”
Kelli works wonders out of her tiny (and by tiny, we mean 20 sq. ft.) kitchen in NYC and shares her cooking adventures through her blog, The Corner Kitchen. A graduate of the world-renowned French Culinary Institute, Kelli balances her passion for food (and her sweet tooth) with an active and healthy lifestyle. Although she has serious culinary training, we love how fresh, seasonal, and approachable all of her recipes are. And, given her limited space, the breadth of her recipes brings a whole new meaning to the word “resourceful.”
