This is probably one of my favorite meals.  It's often on our camping menu because it's an easy, delicious dinner.  I prefer these with corn tortillas, but it's great with flour if that's all I have on hand.  I make my own fajita rub, get lettuce from the garden (in season), grill some bell pepper and onion (or cook in a cast iron skillet), well - you get the idea.

Fajita Rub
2 Tbl - dried chili's made into powder
1/2 tsp - salt
Large pinch - black pepper
1 tsp - garlic powder
1 tsp - onion powder
1/2 tsp - sugar
2 tsp - dried cilantro
3/4 tsp - cumin
1/4 tsp - allspice
1/4 tsp - cinnamon
1/4 tsp - cocoa powder

Use a blender, spice grinder, magic bullet, etc. to pulse dried chili's into powder, enough for 2 tablespoons.  Combine all other ingredients with chili powder, and pulse a few times to mix them together well.

2 - 4 boneless skinless chicken breast
2 - Tbl light olive oil
Fajita rub
juice and zest of one lime

Drizzle chicken with light olive oil (or vegetable/canola oil), apply thick layer of rub to both sides, add lime juice and zest, place in a bag and let refrigerate for 4-24 hours.
Grill chicken breast, serve with corn or flour tortillas
