Burnin' Jalapeno Fingers Fajitas

This recipe is for my friend The Virtual Voyeur. It's a really easy recipe and simply adjust the ingredients for how ever many you are feeding. Be warned though, it is extremely hot. If you are not a fan of spicy food, I don't recommend this dish. All you need is:

Bell peppers...I tend to use one of each: yellow, red, orange & green. Cleaned & sliced.

Onions....whatever kind you like. Peeled and sliced.

Jalapeno peppers....as many as you can handle. Sliced and use the seeds for extra heat. I strongly recommend using gloves while cutting the hot peppers.

The next part is up to you. You can use chicken (cut in strips), beef (cut in strips) or shrimp. All at the same time or whatever combo strikes your fancy.

In a large skillet or saucepan saute your onions, jalapenos and bell peppers. Cover and stir occasionally to prevent burning. In a separate sautee pan cook off your chicken or whatever you are using. When chicken /meat/shrimp is finished, add it to the onions & peppers. Now add the fajitas seasoning. It doesn't matter what kind you use. I recommend either Ortega or McCormick. Allow the mixture a few more minutes over the heat to absorb the seasoning.

Serve in warm soft tortillas. I always use the large ones. The small ones are wimpy and you end up with a mess. Add sour cream, hot sauce and cheese to taste. These go great with black beans & rice. Goya is a great pick. Enjoy!
