    sorry no pics but a great dish none the less..

    you can use leftover smoked chicken or grill some chicken breasts, both will work

    chicken breasts
    1 can of kernel corn - drained
    1 can of black beans - drained and rinsed
    salsa
    green bell peppers
    1 pkg fajita seasoning
    couple of limes - cut in 1/4's
    Tony C's
    cheese
    tortilla's
    1/2 cup water
    2 TBLS EVOO
    2 chili powder
    cylantro

    - add fajita seasoning, Tony C's to the water and EVOO, marinate the chicken in this mixture for at least 15 minutes
    - grill or smoke chicken breasts and bell peppers
    - combine corn & beans in skillet, add 1 TBLS chili powder, 2 TBLS salsa
    - cook chicken
    - heat mixture in skillet over medium heat
    - heat tortilla's in a separate skillet or on the grill

    assembly:
    - slice or chop chicken
    - spoon a couple of tablespoons of the bean mixture onto the warmed tortillas.
    - add cheese and cilantro
    - add more salsa and chicken
    - this is a must step, make sure you squeeze some lime juice onto the wrap, i tried without it and the lime makes it taste much better

    enjoy

    i use whatever the missus picks up at the store..lol

    usually the cheap stuff thats why i had Tony C's to it and maybe a little more cumin and chili powder

    or
    Make your own fajita seasoning mix.
    INGREDIENTS:
    • 3 Tbsp. cornstarch
    • 2 Tbsp. chili powder
    • 1 Tbsp. salt
    • 1 Tbsp. paprika
    • 1 Tbsp. sugar
    • 2-1/2 tsp. crushed chicken bouillon cube
    • 1-1/2 tsp. onion powder
    • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
    • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
    • 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
    • 1/2 tsp. cumin
    PREPARATION:

    Combine all of the ingredients in a small bowl. Pour into small glass or plastic container, seal tightly and store in a cool, dry place. Makes the equivalent of 3 packets of commercial or purchased Fajita Seasoning Mix.
