Chicken Fajitas with SW Seasoning
These fajitas are a family favorite and are easily made on the stove in a large wok or - best of all! - over a fire when camping. I keep a container of the Southwestern seasoning on hand at all times to use for fajitas or in black & white bean chicken chili.

Chicken Fajitas with SW Seasoning Preparation
TO MAKE SEASONING: Mix all ingredients together in a tightly sealed container and shake until well-mixed. It will stay fresh in the kitchen cupboard for 2-3 months.
TO MAKE STOVE-TOP CHICKEN FAJITAS:
Stir-fry thinly-sliced chicken and sliced onions in oil, shaking as much SW Seasoning into the mix along the way (as much as you wish). After chicken is fully-cooked, add pepper slices and stir fry for 2-3 minutes. Add black beans, undrained, corn and 1/2 cup chopped cilantro. Continue to stir-fry until all ingredients are hot, adding additional SW Seasoning as you cook.
TO MAKE CHICKEN FAJITAS OVER THE CAMPFIRE OR OUTDOOR GRILL:
Pre-cook chicken breasts over fire using handheld wire grill. When done, slice cooked chicken into thin strips. Layer ingredients in the following order in a double-thickness square of tinfoil:
Some SW Seasoning
Can of black beans (undrained)
1-2 small cans of shoepeg corn (drained)
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
Generous amount of SW Seasoning
Lay another layer of heavy duty foil over the mixture and seal tightly; put on grill over fire. Leave there for 10-15 minutes or until contents are juicy and hot.
Serve over tortillas that have been warmed first in microwave or over the fire. Each person can add whichever toppings they like to their fajitas.
Don't hold back on adding seasoning as you cook. The fajitas test best when they're well-seasoned! To keep fajita ingredients from spilling out of the tortillas, fold the tortillas into squares.
