I’m a Weis Mother with a Wise Dinner Plan: Chicken Fajita Sandwiches

chicken fajita sandwichesPinItAs an avid couponer, I’ve been known to shop at four or five different grocery stores, but the one I do more than 90 percent of my shopping at is Weis Markets. Those of you live in the northeast are probably quite familiar with this gem.

There are plenty of reasons Weis is my go-to stop for groceries: Great deals, friendly staff, and their super-convenient online shopping program (Weis iShop) are just a few. You can also visit the Weis website and browse the circular for the weekly deals, print “at home couons,” or clip eCoupons, which makes hunting for deals really easy.  To clip eCoupons, you simply sign in and add your card number to your account. Then you click on the coupons you want, which will be added to your Weis Shoppers Club Card and applied at checkout. You can get more detailed instructions from my Google+ album, but it’s actually really easy to do!

at home couponsBelieve it or not, it gets even easier. You can do all this from your smartphone, too. Simply go to WeisMarkets.com from your phone and from there you can view the circular or sign into your account and “clip” coupons that will be added to your shoppers club card, just like you would do from the computer. Also check out their free app, from which you can create shopping lists and view the circular as well!

photoDuring my most recent Weis trip, I was on a mission to create a meal that was both healthy and tasty. The meal I finally settled on was something I’d never tried before – Chicken Fajita Sandwiches. (See recipe at the bottom of this entry.) I of course downloaded several eCoupons to my Weis Shopper’s Club Card before I left the house, which were automatically deducted from my total at checkout. It doesn’t get much easier than that!

The dish is healthy, but it’s also simple to make. The star of the meal are the veggies – specifically the red and green peppers – which Weis just happened to have on sale this week!

peppers 2To make the Chicken Fajita Sandwiches, you’ll need two chicken breasts (cut into strips), a red and green bell pepper, one onion, fajita seasoning, sour cream, shredded pepper jack cheese and, of course, buns.

  9. These look great! I think I would probably mix my own spices together instead of using fajita seasoning, and might opt for an open faced sandwich to half the bread calories, but I would try this one day. Too bad we don’t have a Weis Markets here. There is one where my mother lives, though–I[ll definitely be making a stop the next time I visit!
