Ingredients

  • 2 Microwave Chicken Fajitas
  • 2 sweet onions, sliced
  • 2 Tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 Pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, sliced
  • 1 Tablespoon chile powder
  • 1 Tablespoon ground cumin
  • 12 flour tortillas
  • 1/2 Cup sour cream
  • 1/2 Cup salsa

Directions

Combine the bell peppers, onions, and garlic together in a deep microwave safe dish. Combine the chile powder and cumin powder in a bowl and add the chicken, turning to coat.
