Homemade Fajitas

Standard

It’s Cinco De Mayo and here is my favourite Fajita recipe.  I found it in a health magazine and added my own ingredients and toppings.

 

Tried Tested and True Fajitas

Ingredients

  1. 2 Whole Chicken Breasts, boneless & skinless
  2. 2 Tbsp of olive oil, divided
  3. 2 Cloves of Garlic, diced
  4. 1/4 Red Onion, thinly sliced
  5. 1/2 cup of Red & Green Peppers, thinly slices
  6. 1 Cup each of diced Broccoli and Cauliflower
  7. 1 Cup of Salsa
  8. Hot sauce to taste (optional)
  9. Large Tortilla wraps and assorted toppings

Directions

  1. Heat 1 Tbsp of olive oil in 1 frying pan and 1 wok over medium heat
  2. Brown chicken breasts in frying pan until cooked through
  3. While the chicken is cooking, add garlic and onions in the wok
  4. Then add peppers, broccoli and cauliflower to the wok, saute until tender
  5. Remove cooked chicken breasts from pan, let rest for 5 minutes, then slice into strips
  6. Before adding the chicken to the veggies, add a few dashes of hot sauce, saute for 2 minutes
  7. Mix in chicken and salsa in with the veggie medley, mix together until heated through
  8. Serve

While I know that broccoli and cauliflower are not traditional fajita ingredients, but this way the Princess gets a variety of veggies in her meal and when it’s all wrapped up in a tortilla, she doesn’t even notice and I personally enjoy the added crunch.  I like to put out a spread of fajita toppings like iceberg lettuce, grated cheddar cheese, con queso, sour cream and refried beans and we all make our own.  This is one of our family favourites and I hope that you enjoy it too!
