Healthy and Clean Cinco DeMayo

A Cinco De Mayo meal made healthy...

Fresh is the key to this dinner, no canned sauces, no re-fried beans, nothing heavy.  You can have seconds with this meal. 

Chicken Fajitas -

Start with sliced red onions (julian)
sliced onions (julian)
sliced green bell pepper (julian)
sliced chicken breasts (thin)
sea salt
ground pepper
granulated garlic
ground cumin
ground cinnamon

Sautee all veggies until cooked but still firm, add seasons, add chicken.  Continue cooking until the chicken is fully cooked, mix and let simmer for 5 minutes.  *NOTE* if you do not have the seasons needed you can use enchilada sauce and add when 1/2 cooked.  Serve the fajitia mixture in soft white corn tortialla (double layering is preferred to keep from ripping apart.

Pinto beans on the side are the healthiest choice over re-fried.  Cook up some rice if desired.  Place some sour cream (low-fat) and homemade quacamole out for extra yummies.

Homemade chips top off the meal.  A pitcher of iced lime/lemon water on the table and you are good to go.
