Ready for a Mexi-licious mini-meal or snack? It's a chicken fajita explosion that's under 200 cals... Olé!

3 medium iceberg lettuce leaves (or leaves from another round, firm head of lettuce)
3 oz. raw boneless skinless lean chicken breast, sliced
1/2 cup sliced red and green bell peppers
1/2 cup sliced onions
2 tbsp. HG's Holy Moly Guacamole**
1 tbsp. salsa
1 tbsp. fat-free sour cream
1 1/2 tsp. dry fajita seasoning mix

Place chicken, peppers, and onions in a medium bowl. Blend fajita seasoning mix with 3 tbsp. water, and pour mixture over the chicken and veggies. Stir so that chicken and veggies are thoroughly coated. Let marinate for 5 minutes.

Spray a medium pan with nonstick spray, and bring to medium-high heat. Pour chicken/veggie mixture (including any excess marinade) into the pan. Moving mixture around occasionally with a spatula, cook until chicken is cooked through and veggies are slightly browned (about 6 minutes). Transfer mixture to a bowl. Serve with the lettuce leaves, guac, salsa, and sour cream. Enjoy fajita-style, by loading up each lettuce "cup" with 1/3rd of the mixture and topping with the condiments. Yum!


*Holy Moly Guacamole

We KNOW guacamole, people. And we are POSITIVE you're gonna FLIP over this stuff! (Pssst... we recommend dipping cut veggies and baked tortilla chips in it!)

One 15-oz. can early/young peas, drained
1/2 cup mashed avocado (about 1 medium-small avocado's worth)
1/3 cup chopped cherry or grape tomatoes
1/4 cup finely chopped onions
1/4 cup fat-free Greek yogurt (like Fage Total 0%)
4 tsp. lime juice
1/2 tsp. chopped garlic
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1/8 tsp. cumin
1/8 tsp. chili powder
Optional: chopped cilantro, chopped jarred jalapenos, additional salt and pepper

Place drained peas in a medium bowl and mash thoroughly with a potato masher or fork. Add all other ingredients except for the tomatoes, onions and optional items. Continue to mash until blended. Stir in the tomatoes, onions and, if you like, some chopped cilantro and/or jalapenos. Season to taste with salt and pepper, if needed. Enjoy! MAKES 6 SERVINGS
