Course: Entree
Cuisine: Mexican
Servings: 8 servings


  • Flour Fajita Tortillas
  • 2 lb chicken breast cut into thin strips
  • 1 tablespoon Vegetable oil
  • 2 Poblano peppers cut into strips
  • 1 bunch Cilantro chopped
  • 2 Limes quartered
  • 1 jar Habanero Salsa
  • Sour cream
  • ½ Red Onion pickled

Chicken Seasoning:


  • Toss chicken strips with seasoning until well coated. Using tongs will allow for better coverage, otherwise much of the seasoning with stick to your hands.
  • Heat oil in a pan on medium heat and add in peppers. Cook for 5 minutes prior to adding the chicken to a separate pan.
  • While chicken is cooking warm tortillas by sprinkling with water and microwaving for a few seconds, or wrap in foil and place in a 350 degree oven.
  • Once cooked, add chicken and poblanos to the tortillas then add onion, top with sour cream, salsa, cilantro, and a squeeze of a lime wedge.


You do not need to pickle the onion if you haven't planned ahead for it, however it does add a great twist to the dish.
Additionally, I have a gas stove which I used to blister the flour tortillas in the image rather than placing them in the microwave. Either method works great.
You also don't need to use the chicken seasoning recipe provided if you don't want to. I've used a variety of different chicken seasonings with success. Any Mexican or Caribbean chicken season will taste great.
