Chicken Fajitas

Chicken Fajitas

I have been making Fajitas for years and was surprised to discover that I've yet to blog about it. Not that it's anything fabulous, it's really more like comfort food that goes well with everyone in the family and that is easy to prepare.

You can make your own tortilla wraps using ground corn flour (preferably Masa Harina containing corn and lime) and warm water. The method is pretty similar to that for making chapatis and the Mexicans have even created a tortilla press to press the dough into flat rounds. Otherwise, you can buy the ready-made ones (usually wheat flour tortillas) at the supermarket like I do. They are not as tasty, but they do save one a lot of trouble.

Chicken Fajitas :

Chicken boneless Thighs to be marinated with
Ground Cumin
Ground Coriander


Garnishing :

Guacamole made of
Ripe avocadoes
Ground Cumin
Ground Cayenne Pepper
Olive Oil
Lime Juice

Tortilla wraps
Grilled Red Peppers
Grilled Yellow Peppers
Grilled Onions
Raw Tomatoes
Cheddar Cheese
Crème fraîche/Sour Cream
Fresh Coriander leaves

You marinate the chicken fillets and prepare the guacamole. Slice the peppers and onions, grate the cheese and dice the tomatoes.

Then grill the chicken on one grill and the peppers and onions on another. Put everything on the table and invite your guests to wrap their own Fajitas : Tortilla, chicken, peppers, onion, tomato, salad, cheese, guacamole, sour cream, coriander leaves...Bon appetit!
