I had some chicken tenders that needed to be used up so decided on these palate pleasing chicken fajitas! The were quick and my favorite part inexpensive!! I had all the ingredients on hand except for the $.50 green pepper. I also whipped up some FAST guacomole!!! My mom used to make the best homemade salsa, I wish we had some for our yummy Mexican fiesta!!
I started by making some guac for us to munch on while making dinner. This was not “real” guacomole but it was yummy none-the-less. Just combine 2 advocados (mmmm), 1 roma tomato diced, 1/4 cup salsa, 2 pinches of cumin, rounded spoonful of sour cream, and garlic/onion powder. Adjust the seasoning as you so desire. After a few taste tests I decided it needed some oomph so I addded a sprinkle of redpepper flakes and some hot sauce. It was just was I was craving!!
Next, I chopped up a green pepper, 1/2 a yellow onion, 1 clove garlic, about 1.5 cup mushrooms. I sauteed these in about 2 tsp oil. While those were sauting I cut the chicken in to small bite sized chucks and cooked them in a pan with cooking spray. After both parts were cooked through I add the veggies to the chicken and began to season with a small amount of fajita seasoning, cumin, red pepper fakes along with 2-3 Tbsp of water to moisten the mixture!! This turned out so well!!!
That’s what I love about cooking you can just play around with so many different seasonings you don’t have to follow a recipe exactly. When I first started cooking I always felt like I had to have a recipe right in front of me and I would never deviate from it!! But after spending time in the kitchen and getting comfortable it becomes so much easier to improvise.
As Gusto from Ratatouille (My very favorite movie) says, “Anyone can cook!” It just takes practice! 😉
Have a Fabulous Thursday 🙂
