Ingredients

2 plum (Roma) tomatoes, diced
1/2 sweet red pepper, diced
1/2 avocado, diced (optional)
1/2 jalapeño pepper, minced
1/2 cup (125 mL) shredded Canadian Monterey Jack or 
Cheddar Cheese
2 tbsp (30 mL) freshly squeezed lime juice
Salt
1 tbsp (15 mL) butter
1 medium onion, sliced
1 lb (500 g) boneless skinless chicken, cut in thin strips
2 tbsp (15 mL) chili powder
1 tbsp (15 mL) minced canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (optional)
1 1/2 tsp (7 mL) dried oregano
3 tbsp (45 mL) all-purpose flour
1 cup (250 mL) milk
4 to 6 large whole wheat flour tortillas, warmed
Torn lettuce leaves

Preparation

In a bowl, combine tomato, red pepper, avocado, jalapeño, cheese, lime juice and a 1/8 tsp (0.5 mL) salt; set aside.

In large nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat; sauté onion for 3 min or until softened and starting to brown. Add chicken, chili powder, chipotle, oregano and 1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt; sauté for 5 min until chicken is no longer pink inside.

Whisk flour into milk until smooth; gradually stir into skillet. Simmer, stirring, for 3 min or until bubbling and thickened. Line tortillas with lettuce and spoon filling on top along centre; top with fresh salsa. Fold up bottom of tortilla then fold sides to enclose filling.

Tips

Look for chipotle peppers in cans in the Mexican or Latin sections of grocery stores. If you don’t have canned chipotles, you can use 1/4 to 1/2 tsp (1 to 2 mL) chipotle powder, available in the spice section or at bulk stores.

Tip for Kids: If your kids prefer a mild fajita, reduce the chili powder to 1 tbsp (15 mL) and omit the chipotle peppers.
