I love Mexican food, LOVE it! It’s not the healthiest but it is tastygood.
Last night I had the bridesmaids over to get measured up for their dresses apart from poorly Sof :(
so I decided to make (as healthy as I could possibly make them) fajitas.
1 red pepper, chopped
1 large red onion, chopped
1 red chilli
2-3 chicken breasts, cut into smaller slices
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp cumin seeds
freshly ground black pepper
4 wholemeal tortillas
low-fat sour cream
guacamole, to serve
lighter cheddar cheese, grated
1. Make your guacamole and your salsa
2. First toast the cumin seeds on a hight heat then add and fry the onion on a medium to high heat with a little oil until they begin to brown, then add the chilli and peppers. Cook for about 5 minutes then add the smoked paprika.
3. At the same time I fried my chicken in a little oil, already sliced with lots of lemon zest and rind and a little more smoked paprika. This should take between 5 and 10 minutes, keep an eye on the chicken make sure you get it nice and browned but do not over cook, it must be moist not dry!
Warm the tortillas in the oven for 5 minutes, do not let them dry out.
I have one for my lunch today, Woo!
