Food Friday: Fajita Burritos

The winner of our giveaway is Ashley Perez! Thanks to everyone who entered!

This was going to be one dinner and then I changed my mind and it turned into a completely difference dinner (all right, not COMPLETELY different, they were both Mexican based after all)  I'm sure I'm not the first person in the world to come up with fajita burritos, but I certainly never thought of it before this night.  Basically its just my favorite fajita recipe, but with all the ingredients cut into bite size pieces (instead of strips) and black beans and white corn thrown in the mix.

1-2 chicken breasts, diced
Olive oil
1-2 bell peppers (color of your choice), diced
1/2 onion, diced
1 cup frozen white corn
1 can black beans, rinsed
2-3 limes
fajita seasoning (I like the traditional stuff you find on the ethnic food isle)
tortillas (you cannot beat the raw tortillas from Costco that you cook yourself.  Except maybe if you make your own)

1. Brown chicken in olive oil and a squeeze of lime with a sprinkle of salt and fajita seasoning (mine has so much pepper, that I don't feel the need to add more, but it doesn't have any salt so I am pretty generous there).
2. Add peppers and onions.  Cook through.
3. Add corn and black beans and season with more salt, seasoning and lime juice if needed.  
4. Serve in warm tortillas.
