Provided by Member recipe by Steven Morris

Categories     Dinner, Main course, Supper

Time 25m

Number Of Ingredients 14

2 large chicken breasts, finely sliced
1 red onion, finely sliced
1 red pepper, sliced
1 red chilli, finely sliced (optional)
1 heaped tbsp smoked paprika
1 tbsp ground coriander
pinch of ground cumin
2 medium garlic cloves, crushed
4 tbsp olive oil
1 lime, juiced
4-5 drops Tabasco
6 medium tortillas
bag mixed salad
230g tub fresh salsa

Steps:

  • Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 and wrap 6 medium tortillas in foil.
  • Mix 1 heaped tbsp smoked paprika, 1 tbsp ground coriander, a pinch of ground cumin, 2 crushed garlic cloves, 4 tbsp olive oil, the juice of 1 lime and 4-5 drops Tabasco together in a bowl with a big pinch each of salt and pepper.
  • Stir 2 finely sliced chicken breasts, 1 finely sliced red onion, 1 sliced red pepper and 1 finely sliced red chilli, if using, into the marinade.
  • Heat a griddle pan until smoking hot and add the chicken and marinade to the pan.
  • Keep everything moving over a high heat for about 5 mins using tongs until you get a nice charred effect. If your griddle pan is small you may need to do this in two batches.
  • To check the chicken is cooked, find the thickest part and tear in half - if any part is still raw cook until done.
  • Put the tortillas in the oven to heat up and serve with the cooked chicken, a bag of mixed salad and one 230g tub of fresh salsa.

HOT AND SPICY FAJITAS

Provided by Food Network

Categories     main-dish

Time 2h

Yield 4 servings

Number Of Ingredients 37

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 white onion, sliced
1 red bell pepper, sliced
1 green bell pepper, sliced
6 button mushrooms, sliced
6 green onions, sliced
1 carrot, cut into julienne strips
Salt
Black pepper
Soy sauce
1/2 pound chicken breast strips
1/2 pound skirt steak
1/2 pound shrimp, peeled and de-veined
1/2 pound Cajun sausage
Assorted chiles (recommended: habanero, pasilla, Anaheim, jalapeno), roasted
1 lime, juiced
Guacamole, recipe follows
Salsa, recipe follows
4 avocados, mashed
1 tomato, diced
1 white onion, diced
2 teaspoons finely chopped cilantro leaves
1 lime, juiced
2 teaspoons finely grated Parmesan
1 teaspoon hot sauce
Salt
Pepper
4 tomatoes
2 white onions
2 chiles (recommended: habanero, pasilla, Anaheim, yellow, or jalapeno), roasted
Olive oil
Black pepper
Chili powder
1 lime, juiced
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
Cumin
Garlic salt

Steps:

  • In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add vegetables, season with salt, pepper, and soy sauce, to taste, and saute until tender yet still crisp, about 8 minutes. Remove vegetables from skillet and reserve.
  • Preheat a grill to medium-high heat. Grill the chicken, steak, shrimp, and sausage; it is best to select a different area of the grill for each, as they all have very different cooking times. As each is cooked through, remove from the grill, cut into strips, and reserve.
  • Heat the same large skillet until very hot and return the vegetables to the pan. Layer the assorted roasted chiles on top and then lay the meat on top of the chiles. Add the lime juice for that famous fajita sizzle and serve immediately with the Guacamole and Salsa.
  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir mix well. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Preheat a grill to high.
  • Coat the tomatoes, onions, and chiles in olive oil, black pepper, and chili powder, to taste. Blacken vegetables on the grill. Remove from the heat and then dice when cool enough to handle. Mix together in a bowl with the lime juice and cilantro. Season, to taste, with cumin, garlic salt, and additional pepper and chili powder.

STEAK (OR CHICKEN) FAJITAS



Steak (Or Chicken) Fajitas image

These are so quick and tasty. You can use strips of boneless chicken breast instead of the beef. Feel free to double the marinade. The flavor is so great for such a short marination time. You can can do them up ahead of time and have the meat sit longer if you wish.
