Instructions
  1. Heat a pan over medium to low heat. You don't want to heat the pan too hot as we're using olive oil.
  2. Add 1 tbsp of olive oil to the pan, then allow it to heat up slightly before adding the onions.
  3. Saute a 1/2 cup of sliced onions in the olive oil until soft and translucent.
  4. Add 1 diced chicken breast to the pan, then add the spices by sprinkling 1 tsp of cumin and 2 tsp of dried oregano over the chicken and onion mixture.
  5. Stir up the chicken and onion mixture and allow it to cook throughly for 3-4 minutes.
  6. Add the diced red bell peppers to the mixture, stir, and heat for another 1-2 minutes.
  7. Add a handful of red leaf lettuce to each plate. If you don't have red leaf lettuce, any leafy green will work.
  8. Add a 1/2 cup diced tomatoes, the chicken fajita mix, and then finally, the sliced avocado on top.
  9. Enjoy.
