Recipe: Low Cal Chicken Fajitas

12 Jul

A plate of 3 chicken fajitas with flour tortillas, sour cream, cheese and fried peppers at On the Border is about 930 calories. Yesterday I made a healthy version that didn’t sacrifice on flavor but saved hundreds of calories.

5 oz Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast Strips (About 4 strips = 170 calories)
Weber Grill Kickin’ Chicken Seasoning
Garlic Powder
Season the chicken strips with the garlic powder and Weber seasoning and put on the grill for a few minutes until the juices run clear.

Use butter flavored cooking spray to sautee red, orange and green peppers in a skillet. By using the cooking spray, you don’t use any fat or calories in your cooking, but still get the same taste as if you used oil.

Serve With:
2 La Casita Flour Tortillas (90 calories each)
1 TBS Greek Yogurt (instead of sour cream, only 25 calories)
1/3 Cup of Kraft 2% Shredded Cheddar Cheese is 80 calories. I use half of the serving for a total of 40 calories

Total Calories for 2 Fajitas: 415 calories
Total Calories SAVED: 515
