Chicken Fajitas

I'm not a Mexican food connoisseur, but what I've tried (Tacos, Burritos, Quesadillas, Fajitas....) I've really loved. The flavors are a good change from our usual Asian and French home cooking. How true it is to the original Mexican cuisine, I'm not certain however. I learned to make Fajitas from my sister, DO. But because she doesn't like spices, she buys the tortilla wraps separately and makes her own simple tomato sauce with just a can of diced tomatoes. I've been seeing these Old El Paso Fajitas kits in the grocery store for some time and I've always wondered about it. There were several choices available, but I thought I'd pick the mildly spiced with no chili one to start with.

Flavor authenticity aside, I thought this Fajitas kit was pretty convenient. It came with 8 tortilla wraps, 1 sachet of mildly spiced sauce, and 1 sachet of herbs for the cream. All you need to buy is the chicken breast and toppings if you want (i.e. grated cheese, red onion, lettuce, tomatoes...). 

I bought 2 chicken breast fillets that I sliced in strips and sauteed them in the red sauce. Set aside.

In a bowl, add some creme fraiche and the herbs. Mix together.

Prepare your desired toppings.

Get a tortilla wrap and spread a little of everything. I like to fold one end and roll the fajitas. It prevents the sauce and cream to drip on one end. It can get pretty messy.
