Fajitas

Mexican food in Europe is neither that accessible nor that popular as in the US. Nevertheless, once I figured out how easy it is to make fajitas I don't long for a Tex Mex restaurant anymore! :) Fajitas for me is the absolute comfort food. It is super-easy to make and you can really be creative with it. I've done fajitas at least 100 times in the last couple of years but the recipe is always a bit different.
Last night, while I really wanted to go to the gym, a giant storm descended upon us so I decided to cook something instead (I know, food instead of gym is a terrible idea :). Luckily I was just back from grocery shopping so I had all the ingredients handy.

  • Chicken breast
  • Wraps
  • Chicken spices
  • Onions
  • Peppers
  • Canned Corn (Bonduelle is the best!)
  • Canned Beans
  • Tomatoes

  • Sour Cream

  • Ruccola

  • ... whatever veggies you have lying in the fridge... courgette, mushrooms... whatever
The good thing about fajitas is that you can really use whatever veggies you want/like/have with or without sour cream... etc. It's all up to your creativity!

One of the things me and my boyfriend can never agree on is food. We like different things and I was nice enough to make two different fillings last night:
Mine: chicken, onions, peppers, corn, tomatoes, sour cream
His: chicken, onions, peppers, beans, tomatoes (more manly! :)

You just cut the chicken in stripes, pour some chicken spices on it, put it in hot olive oil and mix in all the veggies. You leave it to fry/cook for about 20 minutes, but I never really watch the time.. you'll see when it's ready. :)

Then you just heat up the tortilla and put some fresh veggies on it. This time I used ruccola, but you can have fresh cucumber, tomatoes as well if you like.

Than you pour the hot chicken mix on the salad... (you might want to add some cheese and extra sour cream too! :))

Voila! One of my favorite meals to cook! Supereasy, superfun and supertasty! Bon Appetite!

I don't have a "Favourite" meal to cook, I simply enjoy cooking if that makes any sense. Not highly keen on Mexican food, but I do enjoy the odd fajita from time to time.

I seriously am the biggest fan of mexican food. I used to miss fajitas so much when we moved back to europe but just like you I figured out how to make them and can now satisfy my cravings :) recently I tried making enchiladas with mexican rice and they turned out amazing! super easy as well!!

ahhhhhhhh looks SO good will try this soon. never knew fajitas were so easy?!?!?!? then again i always make single portions (or try) so that might be a little rough . if i kept extra in the fridge it'd probably be consumed about 5 hrs after i stuck it in there.. hahahaa
