[baja chicken chalupa]

We used to love one thing at Taco Bell, and then they discontinued it… the Baja Chicken/Steak Chalupa. We finally missed it enough to clone it.

Makes 5 chalupas

2 chicken breasts
Fajita seasoning
Olive oil
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
1 Tbsp red onion, diced
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp red wine vinegar
2 Tbsp mayonnaise
Northwoods Fire Seasoning
Lettuce, shredded
1/2 tomato, diced
1 Tbsp white onion, diced
Colby jack cheese, shredded
5 flatbreads

Pound the chicken breasts to 1/4" thickness. Sprinkle with a generous covering of fajita seasoning. Sauté in olive oil on med/high heat. Flip when browned and sauté other side. Wrap chicken in foil pouch and let sit for 20 minutes until juices run clear.

baja sauce
Meanwhile, make Baja sauce: combine bell pepper, red onion and garlic. Add mayonnaise and red wine vinegar until desired consistency. Add one shake of fajita seasoning and 2 shakes of northwoods fire seasoning. Stir and adjust seasonings as desired. Let sit.

Brush olive oil on one side of each piece of flatbread. Heat griddle or panini maker and grill flatbread, rotating once, until golden brown and slightly crunchy on oiled side. Let sit.

Combine tomato and white onion. Let sit.
