AVOCADO-LIME SOUR CREAM INSTRUCTIONS:

- Heat oil in large skillet set over medium-high heat; cook chicken with salt and pepper, turning occasionally, for 3 to 5 minutes or until starting to brown.

A large cast-iron skillet is the perfect pan for cooking fajitas because it holds heat well. To serve with flair, bring cast-iron skillet to table while still sizzling and squeeze fresh lime juice over top. Substitute Tex Mex seasoning for Cajun seasoning if desired.
