Pretty Peppers

I grew these beautiful tri-color peppers in my garden. I love the colors in them.
Problem is...I am the only one in the family who likes them. What to do with all these pretty peppers?'s what I did. I seeded them and sliced them up. I baked 4 chicken breasts in the oven. I chopped up some Walla Walla sweet onions.
Once the chicken was cooked, I sliced it up nicely. Then I sprayed a frying pan with some non-stick spray. I tossed in the peppers and onions and sauteed them. Then I put in the chicken breast. To season it up, I cheated and just used this packaged fajita mix.

I continued cooking until it was done. Then I put my fajita into a nice whole wheat tortilla. Just delicious! Almost as good as getting fajitas at Chevy's once you add some cilantro and fresh tomatoes and lettuce.
Then I took the remaining peppers, onions and chicken breasts and divided them into three freezer bags. I popped those babies into the feezer. Now I have ready-made frozen "fast" food for a lunch or dinner.
What a great way to avoid having these pretty peppers go to waste.
Simple. Healthy. Easy. Don't you love it?



  1. I'm not found of peppers myself, but they are sure great looking peppers. Cheers for the gardner.

  2. LOVE LOVE LOVE the new layout of your blog! It fits you perfectly!

    As far as the peppers, I don't care too much for the green ones, but I have learned that whatever you and Mike prepare, I LOVE!

    Miss you!
