This is one of our favorites. Everyone loves fajita night!

2-3 chicken filets (or pork or beef), sliced thinly
Bell pepper, sliced (any color)
Small red onion, sliced
Lime (this is optional, but if you have one on hand it adds a nice flavor)
Various seasonings to taste - I use a Fiesta Lime and Garlic Herb seasoning, as well as salt, pepper, cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, and/or onion powder. Basically just what I grab from the cabinet.
Corn tortillas
Mozzarella Cheese (skim), shredded

How To:
Cook chicken (or pork or beef), bell peppers, and onions in olive oil in pan (cook chicken first and add bell peppers and onions after it is almost cooked). Season to taste. When this is nearly done, warm tortillas in the microwave (or on stove top). Place a little chicken/peppers on each tortilla with a sprinkling of cheese and salsa as desired. Roll and serve.

Takes about 10 minutes is using cooked meat (leftover) or a little longer if you have to cook the meat for this meal.

The really great thing about this recipe is that we typically will use it as our "leftover" recipe to use up leftover meat from a previous night's dinner. The only change in doing it this way is that I will add the chicken (or other meat), which is already cooked, to the peppers and onions after they have gotten a little soft. My husband and six-year old love fajita night and I do as well since it is a tasty and easy (quick meal). I will frequently serve this with bean soup or fried, sliced pre-cooked polenta, but you could serve with refried beans or rice, or a quick vegetable, etc.

Also, it would be easy to make a vegetarian version and replace the meat with portobello mushrooms.
