5 Ingredient Fajitas and Slowing Down [RECIPE]
Hello Beautiful People!
Long time no see! 2 weeks has felt like a lifetime to be away from here! For the past couple of weeks I have turned the burners off on the stove and just kicked back. Or in other words, I’ve been a bit naughty and buying takeout more then I would like. But, the “itch” to cook has come back, I feel refreshed, and so let’s dive back into cooking together, shall we? 🙂
How are you today? No really… how are you?! 🙂 I’d love to hear from you. Comment below and tell me all the wonderful things you’ve been cooking up.
I’ve noticed that the closer it gets to summer break, the busier I become. Kids begin squirming for a respite from school, but as parents we begin gearing up for the summer grind. We start planning all of the things we want to do over the 2 month break from school. It’s exciting, sure… but it’s also a lot of work! So now you know what I’ve been up to. As such, while I’ve been planning and recharging my batteries, I have been keeping meals really simple. The other day I was in my grocery store when I saw this bag of chopped up bell peppers.
Now here is a little noob confession for you: I don’t exactly know the proper way to cut a bell pepper. Some people core it from the top and pull it out. Other people chop down the sides and then toss away the middle. Is there a proper way to cut a bell pepper? All I know is that it can be a pain in the tush to chop and make sure all of those pesky seeds are removed. So, when I saw this bag of frozen, chopped bell peppers I was sold. For $2 USD I can toss these into a pan and whip up some fajitas in less than 15 minutes. I had some leftover chicken in the fridge so I pulled this meal together from what I had in the pantry. (Talk about easy peasy!).
So here is my budget version of weekday fajitas! Enjoy this simple recipe everyone and keep on cooking ❤
Yields: 4 servings
- 1 cooked chicken breast, shredded
- 1 avocado, peeled and mashed
- 1 bag frozen bell pepper strips
- 2 tbsp. Mexican Crema
- 1 package taco tortillas (Note: I had burrito tortillas on hand in this pic. But if you’re buying supplies, go for the smaller ones.)
- Cajun seasoning (optional)
First gather your ingredients…
Then, toss a bit of oil and the frozen peppers in a pan.
Once they are cooked, toss in the chicken and cook until warmed through.
I like to use this Cajun seasoning to give things a kick.
Peel your avocado. Mmmm…. avocado! 🙂
Slap the filling in a tortilla. Top with avocado. Drizzle on the crema and shove that baby in your face! YUM!!! Enjoy everyone! 😉
