Fajitas!

Homemade fajitas!!! You can’t beat a fajita can you?! 🤤 I used to buy the kits but for the last year or so I make them from scratch as the chicken fajita seasoning is so simple to make and the guacamole and salsa are so much tastier made fresh. The @morrisons mexican rice was a cheat but it was really tasty and only cost 47p!

Fajita chicken

I fry 3/4 sliced chicken breasts with sliced red onion and pepper and then sprinkle on around half a tsp of cayenne pepper, paprika, smoked paprika and cumin. Then I add a pinch of dried chilli flakes and a little water to stop it sticking.

Salsa

The salsa is simply 4 chopped salad tomatoes, with 1 small onion diced, the juice of half a lime, a pinch of dried chilli flakes and a small handful of fresh coriander chopped.

Guacamole

Chop 2 avocados, squeeze half a lime over, add 1 small crushed garlic clove, a handful of chopped fresh coriander, a pinch of chilli flakes and seasoning. Roughly mash with a fork.

Salsa Chicken

Salsa Chicken recipe from @diethood but I used a jar of salsa instead of making my own which, along with buying grated cheddar, made this a super easy quick meal.
