Fajitas & Guacamole

One of the reasons I love making/eating Mexican style food is because you can be creative with it! The ingredients are easy to keep on hand, and they are relatively inexpensive! I could eat fajitas everyday of the week and never get tired of them! I also love having an excuse to eat more avocados and spicy food.




This may be a pretty basic recipe- or maybe you have a different way you like to prepare your fajitas. Whatever the case may be I hope at the very least this can be an inspiration to be more creative in the kitchen, to think outside the box, to try something new, and to move away from a stereotype that healthy food can’t be fun and tasty!

Ingredients

Fajita Veggies

  • 2 peppers red or green or orange- whatever you have!
  • 2 onions red or white or yellow!
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp chilli powder
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tsp garlic salt

Spicy Guacamole

  • 2 avocados
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 cup cilantro or more- to taste
  • 1/4 cup red onion optional
  • 1/4 cup tomatoes optional
  • 1-2 limes to taste

Instructions

Fajita Veggies

  1. Heat s large skillet or pan on high heat with oil. Add veggies to the pan and let them set for 30 seconds- then add the spices and stir until well combined. I like to have my veggies a little charred rather than being "soggy" so I try to stir them as little as possible. 

    Once veggies are at a desires tenderness put on low heat continuing to stir them occasionally until ready to serve. 

Guacamole

  1. Mash avocados and spices in a bowl until you have reached a desired consistency. Then add the remaining toppings and stir to combine. 

Protein of choice

  1. Usually I cook chicken and then cut it thinly or just make some black beans for a protein. This time Nick cooked steak and marinated it in a bunch of spices and chipotle peppers in adobo sauce! 

Toppings

  1. My go-to's are 

    -black beans (cooked with cumin and garlic salt), cilantro lime quinoa (cook the quinoa and add lime and cilantro to taste), cauliflower rice, arugula, corn taco shells for me and flour for Nick, salsa, hot sauce, and of course guacamole! 

    Be creative and enjoy!

I would love to hear your favorite way to prepare fajitas and or guacamole!
