Home made fajitas

Fajitas can be very easy to make, without the need of the premade fajita seasoning mixes. This recipe works well for two people as a main course, or four if you have another side dish.

You'll need for the filling:
  • 2 mock chicken breasts, sliced into long thin strips
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, julienned
  • 1 large yellow onion, cut into thin wedges
  • 4 button mushrooms, sliced
  • 30 ml vegetable oil
  • 60 ml liquid chicken stock
  • 15 ml tomato paste (get the tubes that you can squeeze a bit out of it when needed and keep in the fridge, instead of opening a tin of paste)
  • 5 ml chilli pepper
  • 5 ml cumin powder
  • 5 ml coriander powder
  • 5 quick dashes of Tabasco sauce (I used the chipotle pepper kind)
In a skillet, heat vegetable oil on medium high heat. Add themock chicken strips and cook until done. Add in the powdered spices and scrape the bottom of the pan. Add in the stock, tomato paste and vegetables. Lower heat to medium low and stir pan until vegetables are cooked through. Add Tabasco sauce and stir until combined.

Condiments:

  • 4 tortilas breads
  • some grated cheese (cheddar or montere jack will do)
  • yogurt or sour cream
  • chopped green onions
  • salsa
Using one tortilas, place a quarter of the filling, add some cheese, a spoonful of yogurt, some chopped green onions and salsa. Repeat with three other tortilas. Enjoy!
