Chicken Fajita Sandwiches with Guacamole and Bacon

Chicken Fajita Sandwiches with Bacon and Guacamole


I was digging around in the kitchen the other day looking for something to make for breakfast. I had a couple of avocados that were about to go bad and a couple pounds of bacon just begging me to fry them up.

We all know how well bacon and avocado go together right? They’re sorta made for each other.

The more I thought about all of my options, the more I realized that I didn’t really want breakfast. I mean, yeah. It was 9am. Total breakfast food time. But, what I really wanted was a sandwich. Or a chicken fajita.

So, I married the two ideas and this Chicken Fajita Sandwich with Guacamole and Bacon was born.

I’m not ashamed to say that I scarfed this down in, oh, about two minutes flat.

Seriously, the spicy chicken and vegetables worked so well with the creamy coolness of the guacamole. And the bacon? Well, it just completely brought everything together.

Maybe you’ll want these for lunch or dinner, but I’m not gonna lie. This was the best breakfast I’ve had in awhile!

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon chipotle pepper powder
  • 2 chicken breasts sliced into thin strips

  1. In a large skillet, heat the butter over medium heat.
