Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 1 red bell pepper sliced into strips
  • 1 green bell pepper sliced into strips
  • 1 large white onion halved and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons fajita seasoning mix
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts about 1½ lbs trimmed and sliced into bite-sized pieces
  • 40 to rtilla chips
  • 2 cups Mexican cheese
  • Jalapeno pepper optional
  • Salsa optional
  • Guacamole optional
  • Sour cream optional

Instructions

  • Add 1½ tablespoons of olive oil to a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the peppers and onion and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until they are soft and begin to get brown spots. Transfer the vegetable to a large bowl and set it aside.
  • Add the remaining olive oil to the skillet along with the chicken and cook for 5 to 7 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the seasoning and water and then add to the chicken and stir to coat. Add in the lime juice and continue cooking for 3 to 5 minutes until the slurry has thickened on the chicken.
  • Arrange the tortilla chips on a medium baking pan with a rim. Top with the vegetables and chicken, then sprinkle the cheese over the top and broil for 2 to 4 minutes until the cheese has melted and the top is bubbly.
  • Add toppings like peppers, salsa, guacamole, and sour cream to the nachos or serve on the side.
