1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
1 red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
1 green bell pepper, cut into thin strips

Cut chicken breasts into strips. Place chicken and onions in pan.
Set aside. Mix together lime juice, garlic, pepper, cumin, and
oregano. Pour over chicken and onions; cover; marinate 2 to 4 hours
in refrigerator, stirring occasionally. {Do not exceed 4 hours or
the texture of the chicken will be altered.} Heat skillet; add
chicken and onions, red and green bell peppers, and 1 to 2 tablespoons
marinade {to keep mixture from sticking to pan.} Stir fry just
until chicken becomes opaque and is no longer pink. Do not overcook.
Place about 1/2 cup of the mixture in the center of a warm tortilla.
Top with salsa. Accompany with Spanish rice.

1/2 teaspoon chopped garlic
3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
3/4 teaspoon dried, crushed oregano
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon lime juice
