Homemade Fajita Seasoning:

  • 1 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper or 1/4 if you like it spicy
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. Simply Organic Ancho Chili Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin


  • 2 large chicken breasts sliced thin
  • 1 1/2 cups bell peppers sliced thin
  • 1 1/2 cups onions sliced thin
  • 1-2 limes halved
  • Flour tortillas


  1. Preheat your grill to medium.
  2. Combine all fajita seasoning ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
  3. In a larger bowl, mix chicken, peppers and onions.
  4. Sprinkle with the fajita seasoning and toss until everything is well coated.
  5. Divide the mixture between 4 large pieces of tinfoil.
  6. Pull the top and bottom of the piece of foil and crimp the edges all around so that it's tightly closed.
  7. Please the packets in a single layer on the grill and cover and cook for 15 minutes.
  8. While the packets are cooking, wrap the flour tortillas in foil.
  9. When the 15 minutes is up, place the limes inside-down on the grill and place the tortillas onto the top rack (the indirect heat will warm these).
  10. Cook for another 5 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and enjoy!
