You know how I'm always saying that I change recipes?  Well not this one.  It's my mother-in-law's recipe, and it's perfect as is!  Delish!


1 lb lean chicken or pork, cut into thin strips
2 T orange juice
2 T vinegar
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp seasoned salt
1 tsp minced garlic
1 green pepper
1 yellow or red pepper
1 medium onion
1 T oil
Toppings as desired, such as guacamole, tomatoes, shredded cheese, sour cream, salsa, etc.

Combine orange juice, vinegar, oregano, cumin, seasoned salt, and garlic in a ziplock bag.  Add chicken, seal bag, and toss to coat.  Let marinate in refrigerator for 30 minutes.

In the meantime, slice the vegetables in thin strips.  In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat.  Add vegetables and stir fry until they begin to soften, about 5 minutes.  Remove from pan.  Put the chicken and marinade in the pan.  Stir fry until cooked throughout, about 6 minutes.  Add vegetables back to pan until warm.

Add a little filling to a warm tortilla and top with guacamole, tomatoes, sour cream, salsa, shredded cheese, or whatever your favorite toppings are!

Serves 6.

And makes a husband happy when he comes home late from work.

Fajitas are a Carter family favorite. Scott's more a "build-your-own-burrito" guy but I'm 100% fajitas. YUM!
