Things in my House Thursday XI

College Kids Making Dinner! What a nice treat for Mom and Dad...
...and what's on the menu?

Tex Mex Fajitas

Mexican Rice

Steamed Corn

It smells so good in here!
And our dinner was delicious. Let me share the recipe.
Tex - Mex Fajitas
1/2 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
1- 2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 green pepper, cut into strips
1/2 sweet red pepper, cut into strips
1/2 yellow pepper, cut into strips
1/2 sliced red onion
Sliced Mushrooms, optional
1 cup shredded Colby & Monterey Jack Cheese
6 flour tortillas
Lightly coat skillet with olive oil. Add chicken and garlic; cook and stir on medium high heat for 5 minutes. Add peppers and onions (and mushrooms); cook 4-5 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and vegetables are tender crisp. (We like to stir-fry until the onions begin to caramelize) Serve on tortilla with cheese. Garnish with salsa and low fat sour cream.

The recipe sounds delicious. I love it when my oldest son's girlfriend comes. She keeps the coffee pot going and sometimes they bake cookies.

This sounds and looks so good. It almost makes me want to hop in the kitchen and cook me up something similar ... almost.
