  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder (CQ041, QT)

Extras

  • 8-12 6″ flour tortillas (559360, 24DOZ, Abuelita)
  • Salsa (992296, GAL, Rosarita)
  • Sliced avocado (03910, 12CT-Ripe)
  • Sour cream (HPH050, 4/5#, Crowley)
  • Thinly sliced iceberg lettuce (00560, 24CT) dressed lightly with salt and cider vinegar (991958, 4/GAL)

Method

Marinate vegetables: Mix all the marinade ingredients together in a glass or plastic container and add the chopped vegetables, marinate for 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spread the chicken onto sheet pan. Bake in oven for 10 minutes until heated through.

Sauté peppers and onions: While the chicken is baking, cook the onions and peppers. Add a tablespoon of oil to the frying pan. Heat on high. As soon as the oil is hot, add the marinated onions and peppers to the pan.

Spread the onions and peppers in an even layer in the pan. Let them cook undisturbed for 2 minutes. You want them to sear with some blackening. Stir the vegetables and continue to cook for another 2 minutes.

Serve chicken at once with the peppers and onions, some warm tortillas, and sides of shredded cheese, salsa, guacamole, and/or thinly sliced iceberg lettuce dressed with vinegar and salt.
