Follow these steps to create your Salsa Chicken Fajita Stacks:

1. Heat the olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat.
2. Add the chicken breasts, season with salt and pepper, and cook until browned, about 5-7 minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside.
3. In the same pan, add the peppers and onions. Cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
4. Slice the cooked chicken into thin strips and return it to the pan. Sprinkle the cumin and chilli powder over the top, stirring well to combine.
5. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
6. Place four tortillas on a baking sheet. Spread a spoonful of salsa over each tortilla, then add a layer of the chicken and vegetable mixture. Sprinkle cheese on top.
7. Top each stack with another tortilla, spread more salsa on top, add another layer of the chicken and vegetable mixture, and sprinkle with more cheese.
8. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.


1. For a spicier kick, add jalapeno peppers to the vegetable mixture.
2. Make sure to evenly distribute the chicken and vegetable mixture for a balanced flavour.
3. You can substitute the chicken with tofu for a vegetarian option.
