Step 1

1. With a knife, slice the chicken breasts into 1 inch cubes. Set aside until needed.

2. Peel the onion, slice in half, and then slice into 1/2 inch rings. Slice the peppers into strips, discarding the core. Peel and mince the garlic cloves. Set all of this onto a plate and set aside until needed.

Add the spice mixture and stir until chicken is coated. Add onion, peppers, and garlic to the chicken and cook for an additional 7 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the onions and peppers are soft and the chicken is no longer pink and cooked through.

5. While the fajitas are cooking, warm the tortillas on a comal or griddle until soft.
