Chicken Fajitas

Fajitas

I love this dish. Yes, it does take more time to prepare all the ingredients, but then it is a lot of fun to eat!
Tip 1:  leftovers taste great, so do not worry about making too much of anything!
Tip 2:  Cover the leftover guacamole with plastic wrap.  I place the wrap so that it is in direct contact with the guacamole – so that there’s no air between guacamole and wrap.  This way, your guacamole will stay nice and green the next day!

Ingredients:

  • Guacamole
  • Salsa
  • Sour cream or plain yogurt
  • Flour tortillas
  • 4 Chicken breasts – sliced thinly
  • 2 peppers – sliced
  • 2 onions – sliced
  • 1 large lemon
  • 4 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1.5 teaspoons salt
  • pepper
  • 4 garlic cloves crushed (3 for marinade, 1 to add to the pepper and onion slices)
  • 1 can of re-fried beans
  • Grated cheese

Directions:

  1. Prepare the guacamole and the salsa.
  2. Warm up the re-fried beans on the stove.  Add a little bit of water to make it easier to stir.
  3. Fry the onion and the pepper slices.  Add 1 crushed garlic clove.
  4. Combine lemon, salt, pepper, oil and garlic (3 cloves).
  5. Add chicken, mix, cover and place in the fridge for about 2 hours.

  6. I like to fry the chicken in smaller batches, to sear and then cook.  This way the chicken stays tender.
  7. Combine the chicken with the pepper-onions and fry until the chicken is well done.
  8. Warm up the tortillas on a non-stick pan.  You just need to turn them a couple of times quickly, just to warm them up.
  9. Serve all ingredients separately, so that each person can make his/her favorite fajita combination.
