  • 2 packages (4-serving size) vanilla-flavored instant pudding
  • 1 8-oz. tub Cool Whip, thawed

Directions:

Crush 24 to 28 cookies (I did this with a blender to get a smooth texture). Mix with melted butter and pressed onto the bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie plate.

Beat milk and pudding together until thick (approximately 1 to 2 minutes). It will be pretty thick, almost like a custard. Carefully stir in whipped topping and blend well.

Crush or chop at least 12 Oreo cookies and fold into the pudding mixture. Spoon into crust.

Garnish with Oreos and refrigerate for at least four hours. Waiting is the hardest part. J Enjoy!

These chicken fajitas are simple to make!  You get all of the restaurant flavors - without the restaurant price!!!

We LOVE fajitas!!!  They are actually really easy to make at home.  Just follow these simple steps and you’ll be enjoying them before you know it!

 

MARINADE

You can add your frozen chicken to this marinade and allow it to thaw while soaking up the flavors.  The longer you allow it to marinade – the better!  Anything in the 2-3 hour range is great (although I’ve tossed mine in first thing in the morning and then cooked it at dinner and it was perfect).

1/4 cup fresh lime juice (takes 3-4 limes)
1/3 cup water
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 large cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons apple cider or red wine vinegar
2 teaspoons soy sauce
½ teaspoons chili powder
½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
½ teaspoon liquid smoke – this is the secret ingredient ( it’s worth it to have a bottle of hand just for this!)
¼ teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon onion powder

 

FAJITAS

1 1/2 pounds chicken breasts (about 3 large chicken breasts)
1 yellow onion, cut into thin strips
1 green pepper, cut into thin strips
1 red (or orange) pepper, cut into thin strips
1 teaspoon soy sauce (or liquid aminos)
2 tablespoons water
½ teaspoon lime juice (a quick squeeze of a cut lime)
dash of salt and pepper

 

DIRECTIONS

Combine all marinade ingredients in a small bowl. Place chicken in a ziploc bag and pour the marinade ingredients over the top. Seal the bag and place in the refrigerator and let marinate for 2-3 hours (or longer)

After marinading, take chicken out of the bag and discard the marinade. Grill or broil the chicken 5-7 minutes per side . Remove from grill or pan and tent with foil to keep warm.

In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat and add the onion and peppers. Stir fry until softened but still crisp tender. Add soy sauce, water, lime juice and salt and pepper. Cook another 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently.

Slice chicken thinly on the diagonal and toss with the vegetables in the skillet.

Serve immediately with flour tortillas and top with tomatoes, lettuce, guacamole, cheese, sour cream. Enjoy!!
