I love fajitas tacos and was thinking about what could I put on a spicy smokey chipotle chicken fajita and then it hit me?! A cool lime sauce with sour cream and yogurt with some lime juice and sugar. Well, it turned out to be a great contrast to the spicy fajita and really did help cool it down; however, this is a "hot" one. Make sure you got a nice tall glass of drink before you get started. Love all the flavor this taco brings and I was pleased with the sauce as it was tangy and sweet.
My husband Anthony & I just loved the spicy heat this taco brought and I hope you do too.

How to Make Grilled Chipotle Chicken Fajitas w/Cool Lime Sauce

Step-by-Step

  • 1Prepare your marinade for chicken and then place chicken in the marinade and cover with a lid; then refrigerate for at least an hour. We usually marinate for 4 to 6 hrs.

    Cook up 4 - 8 slices of crisp bacon. Set aside.
  • 2Prepare you lime sauce. Mix all the ingredients together.
  • 3Remove your fajitas from refrigerator. Drain and then place chicken in a bowl with the mixed chipotle sauce, cumin, coriander and salt. Coat the chicken as best as possible. Now, grill your chicken. If sliced fairly thin it should only take 6-8 minutes for chicken to be done. (Don't overcook or they will be dry.)
  • 4Assemble as you wish.
  • 5This is the tortilla shells that I used and they are high in fiber and low carb and still very tasty. Got them at WalMart's.
