Hey, howdy, hey, welcome to another new recipe! This, of course, is one of my favorite kind of recipes. How To Make Chicken Fajitas? Well now, you just dump the stuff on a pan, toss it, and cook it. 

I LOVE fajitas and my favorite part is the onion and bell pepper blends. Funny enough, my husband hates that part so I usually end up eating his share of the veggies and he ends up eating part of my share of the meat.  Until then, my job is to prepare supper, not to cater it, so they learn real quick to find something they like out of each spread and if that ends up being plain tortillas, so be it.

  1. I was born in Texas but lived mostly in Europe due to my dad being in the military. People can’t always pinpoint my accent and have guessed I’m from the north, south, east or west. Lol. I guess I have a mishmash of accents. I live in North Texas now so my daughter was raised in the city. She didn’t think she had an accent but her out of state relatives say she does. It’s not strong, though, compared to my husband and his kids, who are from a small town east of Dallas. The small towns still have a thicker accent but the bigger the city the less of an accent. I think that’s true in any region of the country.

  2. What a great idea for fajitas, to cook it all at once! Here in Oklahoma we have a very distinctive way of speaking. A very twangy southern drawl. Think Reba McEntire. I confess when I was growing up, I was embarrassed to be from Oklahoma and didn’t want to sound like I was from Oklahoma, because it just didn’t seem like a sophisticated place to come from. I used to try to lose my accent. One time I was voice chatting in a chat room many years ago and I thought I was “talking good” and someone thought I was from Georgia! It embarrassed me and I never voice chatted again. When I was in school, they would try to get us to use proper grammar and to lose that accent. Even when I was in choir , our teacher would stop playing the piano and then proceed to imitate and make fun of us when we were a little twangy. As I ‘ve grown up I appreciate where I’m from and I think the accents are comforting, because everyone has an accent, even the lack of one is an accent in itself. It represents your place in the world. I live in a relatively small town but I do notice the more rural the community, the thicker that accent. Especially for people who were born and raised there.

  3. Brown meat(s) first in skillet with oil add veggies and fajita seasoning and cook slowly in skillet or oven(I)prefer skillet. Serve with refried beans And sour cream (if you like) in a warm tortilla and enjoy. Not my fault if you experience a Spanish Accent for a short while! Mild salsa Also kicks it up a notch.

    1. Throw on a bit of Mexican cheese and avocado, some green chilies and voila! An amazing creation to salivate over!

  4. Your chicken Fajita’s look delicious! I listened to your video of the kids, then clicked on the link to Brady’s video. He does sound so different now, but is still your Brady! 🙂 My accent dropped after I moved to Germany in the 6th grade, then to Ohio.

      1. Oh, Christy!
        I’m so glad you brought up the fading of Southern accents! I am a born and bred Californian and I married a man from Charleston, SC. We lived in CA for the first 20 years of our marriage, and then moved here to the Charleston area in 1999. When we first came here, everyone had an accent. Then about 10 years ago because of the new Boeing plant (and now Volvo) coming in, there have been a lot of people moving here from everywhere! They are all nice people, but the accents are leaving. I miss it. We needed the jobs here, but everything has a flip side. Oh well.. maybe we will move to a smaller town someday.

        What part of Kentucky do you live in now? (Or was it TN?)

        Thank you for the the easy Fajita recipe, my husband learned to love Mexican food being married to a Californian. FYI, there is also a Fajita seasoning mix that comes in a packet.

        PS, when my husband was growing up in the South, the only Mexican food he had was Taco Bell!!!


  5. I was raised in NE TX and also talked “funny” even though I didn’t know it. In the mid 70s, I went in the military and people were always asking me where I was from. I got tired of it so one time I told someone I was from Maine, not realizing they really did talk funny up there. Her grandmother lived in Maine and wanted to know the area I was from. Since I couldn’t think of a town in Maine and also not a big liar, I fessed up and told her where I was from. Since then, I married a man in the CG and have lived all over, Alaska, NC and TX, settling on our farm in south central TX in ’84. People around here still ask me where I’m from but I don’t care since I like being a little different. I just told hub we were having the chicken fajitas tomorrow. Thanks for your stories and delicious recipes they are used regularly:)

  6. Thanks for this recipe! We love fajitas and I can’t believe how much easier they’ll be now!

    Back when I was a young woman, I decided I wanted to be a radio disc jockey. I finally got my first job, but was bombarded with calls to let me know I should say you, not y’all, double you, not dub ya, etc. After constant coaching, I learned to speak UnSouthern! Real proper! Any time I’d vacation with my family though, the accent was back and the coaching started again!

    Now I’m retired, old enough to talk as I please, and don’t y’all know it’s with a bit of drawl lol!

    So don’t worry about kids losing their accents. They’re prodigal!
