Julienne bell peppers and onion. Cut chicken into thin strips.
In a large mixing bowl, add all the spices and seasonings and 1 tsp olive oil. Add chicken and toss to coat each piece.
Heat up remaining olive oil in a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook until lightly golden on all sides, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
Add onion and bell peppers to the same skillet and cook for 5 minutes or until desired tenderness, stirring constantly.
Add chicken back in the skillet and give everything a toss. Serve hot with tortillas, guacamole , shredded cheese, sour cream and lime wedges. Enjoy!
Feel free to adjust the seasonings to suit your spice preference.
To save time, feel free to make the guacamole ahead of time. Just be sure to keep it in an airtight container with a piece of cling wrap pressed against the surface of the guacamole to prevent browning from oxidation.
