Serving Size: 1 tortilla with 2/3 cup filling


  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons oil (canola or vegetable)
  • 1 red bell pepper (thinly sliced)
  • 1 green bell pepper (thinly sliced)
  • 1 medium onion (thinly sliced)
  • 6 (8 inch) whole wheat tortillas
  • Optional ingredients: chopped cilantro, chopped tomato, shredded cheese, sliced jalapeno


  1. Freeze chicken 30 minutes until firm and easier to cut. Cut chicken into 1/4" strips. Place in a single layer on a plate. Wash hands, knife, and cutting board. Sprinkle both sides of strips with chili and garlic powder.
  2. Add oil to a 12 inch skillet. Heat to medium high. Add chicken strips. Cook about 3-5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  3. Add bell peppers and onion. Stir and cook until vegetables are tender and chicken is no longer pink. (Heat chicken to at least 165°F).
  4. Scoop chicken mixture ( 2/3 cup each) onto tortillas. Top with your favorite toppings.
  5. Serve flat or rolled.


Use 1 can (15 ounces) black beans (drained and rinsed), beef or pork instead of chicken.

Use corn tortillas instead of whole wheat.

Heat cold tortillas to make them easier to fold. Cover tortillas with a moist paper towel and heat 30 seconds in microwave.

Wear plastic gloves to handle hot peppers. If you do not have gloves, wash hands with soap and water before touching your face, your cooking utensils, or another person.

3 cups pepper = 2 medium peppers
