Freezer Friday... oooh Fajitas!

Another reason to use your freezer... save money! 
When something is in season or on sale it is a great way to take advantage of the sale. For example last week chicken breasts were $1.67 a pound, peppers were 3 or 4 for $1 and onions were 19 cents a pound. An easy way to use all those ingredients... Fajitas!
I chopped up the veggies and diced the chicken into bite sized pieces.

I marinated the chicken with some water and fajita mix... lazy I know but I haven't found a good fajita recipe I like. I used 5 pounds of chicken so I adjusted the recipe accordingly.

Put one pound of chicken into a quart size freezer bag and several cups of veggies into a gallon size freezer bag along with the sealed bag of chicken. Stack them in the freezer. When you are ready to eat it's best to let the chicken thaw before you cook it in a little oil in a hot skillet. Add the veggies (still frozen is best). This is a quick easy dinner on a busy night. The kits keep for up to 6 months in the freezer.

Have you tried my fajitas recipe? I won't be hurt if you have and didn't like it :) I used those packets too until I found the recipe I use. P.S. I just made the Fiesta Rice recipe from the cookbook and loved it! I added black beans and it was a hit!

Thanks for the recipe. I will totally try it. I haven't made fiesta rice forever. Good idea to add the beans.
