Holy Fajitas!

We’re continuing our tribute to the Food Revolution with Jamie Oliver by preparing his simple, healthy steak (or chicken) fajitas. This is a tasty crowd pleaser in our home. We use our cast iron skillet, but Oliver suggests a grill pan.

1 red bell pepper,
1 red onion,
2 free-range or organic chicken breast or steaks
1 teaspoon smoked paprika,
a small pinch of cumin,
2 limes,
extra virgin olive oil,
sea salt and pepper,
4 flour tortillas,
one half cup sour cream or natural yogurt,
1 cup guacamole,
4 oz cheddar cheese.

Put pan on high heat, cut bell pepper in strips and slice onion.  Slice chicken or steak into narrow strips lengthwise. Add meat and veggies into a bowl with paprika and cumin. Squeeze lime and add a lug of olive oil.  Coat the meat and veges evenly and set aside for 5 minutes. Add to skillet and heat until veggies are tender and meat is throughly cooked, stirring occasionaly to prevent burning. Warm tortillas in oven or microwave. add guacamole and sour cream if you like. ¡Buen provecho!

To make your salsa:

one half of a red chile, diced
15 ripe grape tomatoes, diced
small bunch of fresh cilantro, diced
1 lime, squeezed
sea salt and pepper, to taste
small “lug” extra virgin olive oil.

¡Buen provecho!
