CHICKEN FAJITAS


This is a tasty Mexican treat that is easy to make.


Saute onions and peppers.  Cook until they are crisp-tender or
softer if you prefer.  Green peppers add more color
but I was out of them at the moment.


Mix with cooked chicken and salsa; heat through.


Place mixture on a tortilla, top with cheese, roll up and enjoy.

(skinless, boneless) cut into strips
