$1.50 Chicken Fajitas
I was at the grocery store earlier today, and they had some of the Tyson Grilled and Ready Fajita Chicken Breast Strips on sale. They weren’t on my list, but with the sale price, plus a coupon I had in my binder (doubled), I was able to get it for just $3. Nick wasn’t all that excited about the meal I had planned, so I thought I’d make him some Fajitas, and they boys and I the original meal. (With my food allergies and pickiness, it’s not uncommon for me to make more than one meal. Many people just shake their heads at me, but it works for us).
I had the other ingredients to go with this in the pantry at home already, so it wasn’t a huge substitution. I also only used half the bag, and ended up with 6 Fajitas (the kids wanted those over what I had planned too…), so that $3 bag of Frozen Chicken will make another meal next week!
Folded those babies over, and partnered them with some Refried Beans and Mexican Rice, topped with shredded cheese. We like cheese. Nick ate three, and each child ate one. However, they informed me that one wasn’t enough, so next time I’ll make the whole bag so they can each have 2, and we’ll have some leftover for lunch the next day.
I don’t know why I haven’t made these before, they were super quick (ready in 10 mins TOTAL) and inexpensive to make.
