Chicken Fajitas with Pico de Gallo and Guacamole

image

I love having fajitas at least once a week, I always make homemade guacamole from scratch and tonight I made Pico de Gallo, recipes as follows:

image

▶Pico de Gallo◀
•4 organic roma tomatoes chopped
•3 slices red onion diced
•1/2 jalapeno diced

•handful of cilantro minced

•2 slices of red onion diced
•3 slices of tomato chopped
•1 tbsp cilantro minced
•1 tsp diced jalapeno
•1/2 fresh squeezed lime
•Fresh ground pepper
•Pinch garlic powder

☆Mash avocado until smooth (ok to have chunky) add rest of ingredients and mix well. If you like you can use a food processor to blend for a more creamy guac.

▶Fajitas◀
•12 oz chicken breast or what ever other protein you like
•1 large bell pepper julienned
•1/2 yellow onion, rings
•Cumin, cayenne,  garlic, pepper
•2 tbsp water
•Wraps
•0% Greek yogurt
•Mozzarella
•Lettuce

☆Slice chicken into strips, heat pan with 1 tbsp olive oil and fry over medium heat, sprinkle cumin over chicken (appx. 2tsp) cook until chicken is no longer pink, add peppers, onion and more cumin, cayenne,  garlic and pepper (I just eyeball, don’t over do it) I also add a couple tbsp of water so it doesn’t dry out. Cook for about 5-10 min more or until peppers and onions are soft. Serves 3-4.

Beef Stirfry

Dinner last night was very easy, oh the possibilities!

image

▶Ingredients:
•8-12oz Lean sirloin beef steak
•1/2 large zucchini sliced and halved
•1 medium bell pepper julienned(I used 1/2 red 1/2 orange)
•1 cup snap peas
•1/4 large onion sliced
•1 cup carrots julienned
•1 cup broccoli cut into small pieces
•4 large mushrooms sliced
•2 cloves garlic diced
•1 tbsp diced cilantro plus few sprigs for top
•1 tsp raw sesame seeds for top
•Fresh ground pepper
•Garlic powder
•Red chili flakes
•1-2 tsp Toasted sesame oil

I cheated for sauce tonight (I used pre made black bean paste)
1 tbsp black bean paste mixed with 3 tbsp water

•Brown rice cooked

Marinate steak with Worcestershire sauce, pepper and red chili flakes for at least 1 hour.

Get your rice cooking first. Slice steak into thin slices. Heat pan with 1-2 tsp of sesame oil and fry steak until cooked, while steak is cooking slice all your vegetables up. Add carrots and broccoli cook for 3 minutes then add all other vegetables (reserve cilantro sprigs and sesame seeds),  spices and add black bean sauce and cook for about another 10 min or until vegetables soft (if you don’t have black bean sauce you can use light soy sauce (I use bragg liquid soy) and add extra seasonings as you like).

Scoop rice onto plate and top with stirfry, sesame seeds and cilantro sprigs.  Serve ♡

Serves appx. 3

Greek Salad

image

Here’s my take on Greek salad, I always make my own dressing as the stuff in the bottle has added crap that we don’t need.

Salad ingredients:
•2 romaine leaves chopped
•1/2 small cucumber cubed
•1/2 bell pepper chopped
•6-8 cherry tomatoes halved
•1 slice red onion chopped
•1 oz low fat feta cheese cubed

Salad Serves 1

Dressing:
•1/2 fresh squeezed lemon
•1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
•1 tbsp white wine vinegar (or vinegar of choice)
•1 tbsp dried oregano
•1/4 tsp garlic powder
•fresh ground pepper

Whisk dressing ingredients in a small bowl and set aside, chop veggies for salad and top with 1-2 tbsp of mixed dressing,  mix well and serve. Store extra dressing in fridge for later.

Spaghetti Marinara with Brown Rice Noodles

I like to throw whatever I can find in my spaghetti sauce, this is what I came up with tonight.

image

Ingredients:

•1lb lean ground beef, turkey, bison or veggie ground round
•1 medium bell pepper, chopped
•1/2 medium zucchini, chopped
•2 celery sticks, chopped
•1/2 medium yellow onion, chopped
•1 large carrot, chopped
•1/2 cup broccoli, cut into mini pieces
•4 garlic cloves, minced
•1 small jalapeno, minced (optional)
•1 large can whole tomatoes
•1 jar of tomato sauce
•1 package of brown rice noodles (or noodles of choice)

Spices for me are endless but for this dish these are essential:

•2-3 Tbsp dried oregano
•1-2 tsp dried basil
•1-2 tsp Garlic powder
•Fresh ground pepper to taste

Feel free to add any other spices or veggies as you like.

First off you fry the ground meat of choice, drain off any excess fat.

image

While your meat is cooking,  chop up vegetables.

image

Once the meat is well done add the chopped veggies and spices.

image

Fry the mixture for about another 10 minutes or until vegetables are turning soft, they will cook more once sauce added.

I picked up some organic roma tomatoes and this pasta sauce as it has no added sugar. First time trying these brown rice noodles,  they were good.

image

Get your boiling pot of water for noodles of choice. Add tomatoes and tomato sauce to mixture, crush the whole tomatoes with hands into mixture.

image

Simmer on low for 15-20 minutes stirring occasionally, cook noodles according to package. Serves 6-8 (lots of leftovers).
