  • 6 Bacon cut into small pieces
  • 1 pound chicken tenders cut into bite size pieces
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1.5 teaspoons Salt
  • 1.5 teaspoons Ground Cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 cup onions, chopped chopped
  • 2 cups green bell peppers chopped
  • 3-4 Jalapeño Peppers (optional)
  • 1 cup shredded cheese Mexican blend, Oaxaca or Muenster
  • salsa and guacamole for serving


  • Heat a 12-inch skillet on high heat. As the skillet heats, chop up the bacon. Add the bacon to the hot pan.
  • While the bacon cooks, cut the chicken into bite size pieces, and marinate the chicken. To a large bowl, add the chicken, 1 tablespoon lime juice, salt, ground cumin, and chili powder. Set aside.
  • When the bacon is cooked through, about 8 minutes, add the chicken to the pan and cook for 4-5 minutes until the chicken is cooked through. Remove chicken and bacon to a bowl.
  • To the pan, add onions and jalapenos if using. Cook until the onions are translucent, about 2 minutes. Add chopped bell peppers, and ½ teaspoon salt. Cook for 2 minutes until the peppers have softened. Add lemon juice and ¼ cup of water and deglaze the pan thoroughly.
  • Add bacon and chicken to the pan, and stir well.
  • Sprinkle the cheese on the chicken and vegetables. Turn heat down to medium, cover the pan with a lid, and allow the cheese to melt, about 2 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, get your salsa, guacamole, and sour cream in small bowls so that you can serve alongside the chicken.
