  • •1/2 teaspoon black pepper

  • •1 teaspoon cumin

  • •1 teaspoon chili powder

  • •1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • •Kosher or sea salt to taste

  • •1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro

  • •1/2 cup chicken broth, low-fat, low sodium

Directions
  1. *Note* I like to use 1 tortilla shell and bake it into a bowl shape and make individual fajita salad out of this recipe. As we all know, tortilla shells have about the amount of carbs that we need in one meal. So what I do is bake the tortilla shell and then shred lettuce to fill the bowl about half way. Top it with the Chicken Fajita and then I prefer Fat Free Sour Cream opposed to the Greek Yogurt (compare nutrition labels, you will be surprised). Then I usually make some homemade guacamole . I like spice, so I tend to leave the seeds in the jalapeno :-)
