This healthy wrap is enhanced by the lime juice marinade. Low on fat but high on taste, this fajita wrap will ensure a healthy lunch for the entire family. Use any type of bell peppers you like including yellow, orange, or even purple. The colorful vegetables help when it comes to feeding vegetables to our children.

Ingredients:

  • 2/3 C lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp. salt free seasoning blend
  • 1 Tbsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
  • 1 green bell pepper, julienne
  • 1 sweet red bell pepper, julienne
  • 1 onion, halved and sliced thin
  • 6 (8 in.) flour tortillas

Directions:

Pour the lime juice into a mixing bowl. Whisk in the seasoning blend, cumin, pepper, chili powder, and garlic powder. Remove 2 Tbsp. of the lime juice mixture and set aside. Pour the remaining juice mixture into a sealable plastic bag. Add the chicken strips, seal, and turn to coat well. Refrigerate for 30 minutes, turning the bag occasionally.

Spray a skillet with a non-stick cooking spray and place over medium heat. Place both types of peppers and the onion into the skillet. Sauté the vegetables for 5 minutes or until crisp tender. Remove to a bowl and set aside.

Remove the chicken from the juice and discard the juice. Place the chicken into the skillet used for the vegetables. Add the reserved lime juice mixture. Cook the chicken for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally or until the chicken is cooked through. Return the vegetables to the skillet and cook for 3 minutes or until hot, stirring occasionally. Spoon the chicken vegetable mixture down the center of each tortilla. Fold the tortillas around the filling to enclose. Makes 6 wraps.
