Food Safety

Before you start, wash all surfaces and your hands with soap and warm water, and remember to wash your hands, utensils and cutting boards after they touch raw meat or eggs. Avoid cross-contamination by using a different cutting board for your meat and other ingredients. Make sure you’re cooking to safe temperatures and chilling any leftovers within two hours.

  1. Preheat air fryer to 375°F (190°C). In large bowl, combine red and orange bell peppers, red onion, vegetable oil, chili powder, salt and pepper until well coated; add chicken, stirring to coat well.

  2. In batches, arrange chicken mixture in air fryer tray; cook for 15 to 18 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and vegetables are tender.

  3. Serve chicken mixture with warmed tortillas, guacamole, cilantro and lime wedges.

Helpful Tip

Some air fryer models do not require preheating. Check manufacturer’s instructions for proper use.

Alternatively, preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Bake chicken and vegetables on baking sheet in single layer for 18 to 20 minutes, turning halfway through, until vegetables are tender-crisp, chicken is golden brown and internal temperature of chicken registers 165°F (74°C) on instant-read thermometer.
