Tequila Lime Fajitas

This is one of our absolute favorite dishes! I would love to claim this as my own creation; however, I have to admit that my dear friend, Michela McKenna, gave this recipe to me. Thank you, Michela, for allowing me to share this dish with everyone, including Paige Potter. (Only a few of you will get that joke.) This recipe requires quite a bit of slicing and dicing, but the rest of the preparations take no time at all! I just love all of the fresh, healthy ingredients in this dish! Hope your family enjoys it as much as we do! Below are the recipes for the Fajitas and Salsa, but the Margarita recipe will always remain a secret!
Tequila-Lime Fajitas with Guacamole Salsa and a Margarita!
Tequila-Lime Fajitas
4 chicken breasts (sliced) or chicken tenders

1 Yellow Pepper (sliced)
1 Green Pepper (sliced)
1 Onion (sliced)

¼ cup of Tequila
2 Garlic Cloves, minced
1 Tbsp. Grill Mates Chicken Seasoning (I use Garlic & Onion or Montreal seasoning)

10 Large Flour Tortillas

Combine all ingredients in a large Ziploc bag. Close and turn a few times. Let marinate for at least 1 hour or all day. Grill or cook on the stovetop in a shallow skillet over medium heat until Chicken is cooked through and vegetables are tender. Serve on tortillas with sour cream and cheese.

Guacamole Salsa

1cup corn kernels (frozen and thawed)
2 Tbsp. finely chopped cilantro
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 JalapeƱo chilies (seeded and finely chopped)

1 can of Rotel tomatoes (original or mild)
3 Ripe (but still somewhat firm) Avocados, chopped

Combine all ingredients except avocado in a medium bowl. Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour. About 30 minutes before serving, add avocados to tomato mixture. Add salt to taste and enjoy!
