¡Que Sabrosa!

Are you sick of winter yet? I am. I'm yearning for meals on the back porch, the smell of burgers on the grill, and friends outside feasting on summer's bounty. While admittedly, I'm a huge fan of hearty winter meals, I occasionally need to escape south of the border. You and I may not be living our lives in the good old sun right now, but our taste buds can be, right?!

Well se
ñoritas, aquí está....Spicy-Lime Chicken Fajitas. Impress your guests or family with this doozie!

For marinade, combine the lime juice, sugar, oregano, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper. I know that combination may sound strange to some ears (as it did to mine), but trust me on this one. Let chicken marinade for 30 minutes.

Chop up peppers and onion into 1/4 inch slices and fry over medium heat.

When chicken has set in marinade for 30 minutes, cook in frying pan over medium/high heat. Please do not to overcook or dry out your chicken. Serve with tortillas, shredded cheese, sour cream, and guacamole. Now imagine you are on a beach in Mexico living the life of a well-fed vagabond. Go on, try it!
