Stay At Home Thursday

Who could think you can make a meal so perfect in twenty minutes. I have had this recipe for years but never given it a try. We really like Mexican food but along with that comes a lot of calories and loads of carbs. Here is a fun recipe low in calories and spicy and tender. Fajitas are my favorite I don't care what kind fish, chicken, steak, and shrimp even all together. This recipe combines all the flavors and my favorite noodle spaghetti. The man commented it looked like something that a nice restaurant would serve. I think it would be perfect over a bed of spinach next time.

Fajita Spaghetti

8 ounces uncooked spaghetti
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into strips
1 tablespoon hot pepper oil
1 small onion, sliced
1 small sweet red pepper, julienned
1 small sweet yellow pepper, julienned
1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chillies
1/2 cup water
1 envelope fajita seasoning mix

Cook the spaghetti according to package directions.
In a large skillet saute chicken in oil for 8 -10 minutes or until juices run clear; saute the onion and peppers with chicken until tender. Add the water and fajita seasoning mix heat through.
Drain spaghetti; top with chicken mixture.

How interesting! I've never thought to combine fajitas and spaghetti but I love the idea. I'm always looking for ways to change up noodles.
