Nekkid Fajitas

When I started this little adventure, one of my thoughts would be to add recipes and such to it, in addition to my little tidbits. I promise to add pictures as I go along...'cause dammit, sometimes food is just pretty.

So, being that I just typed this up for Mo for our Deepher alumnae newsletter, I thought I'd also post it here. Enjoy!

Nekkid Fajitas
(So named because they're made without tortillas!)


1lb thin sliced (or pounded flat) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 tsp Fajita seasoning
1/4 cup 1/3 Less Fat Philly Cream Cheese
1/2 cup diced red onions
1 cup diced bell peppers
1 cup 2% Milk shredded cheese
1 cup Salsa
1/2 cup Reduced fat sour cream

If the low fat thing, isn't your thing, feel free to substitute the real stuff! :)

Aluminum foil
Cooking spray
Cooking twine or toothpicks
9"x9" baking pan - preferably glass

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Tear off enough foil to make individual pieces for each piece of chicken, spray with cooking spray.

Place one piece of chicken on one piece of foil, and sprinkle with fajita seasoning.

Spread cream cheese on each piece of chicken, then add onions and peppers. Add shredded cheese.

Now comes the messy part: roll the pieces of chicken up, and secure with toothpicks or cooking twine. Top with salsa.

Wrap the foil around the chicken rolls, so that they are completely covered, and secured. Place each little foil package in the baking pan.

Bake for 30 minutes.

Remove from oven and unwrap from foil. (Caution: this will be very hot.) Serve with dollop of sour cream.
