Cracked Wheat Chicken Fajitas
Recipe from Lyn Denna

Simmer for 20 minutes (just like rice):
1/2 c. cracked wheat
1 1/2 c. water

While wheat is cooking, saute:
1 Tbsp. oil
1 green pepper
1-2 stalks celery

Add and simmer for 3-4 minutes:
1 c. cooked chicken
salt and pepper to taste
1 chopped, peeled tomato
1/4 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. cumin
4oz. can green chilies
2 Tbsp. water
1/4 c. chopped olives (I leave these out)
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. chili powder

Add the cooked wheat mixture and stir to combine.
Spoon mixture onto 6-8 flour tortillas.
Sprinkle  each with cheese, roll up and place in a baking dish.

Sprinkle on top:
1 green onion, diced
1 c. grated cheese
