Yesterday — if I may boast — I made a pretty great dinner. Cornelius loved it and I licked the plate clean. What can I say, I may not have the best manners, but I sure do appreciate a good meal. We washed dinner down with a bit of my favorite pop: Boylan’s Creamy Red Birch Beer. So good!!
easy (& kinda healthy) fajita wrap
1 skinless chicken thigh, deboned
½ lime, juiced
1 dried red pepper, crumbled
1 t oil
whole wheat tortillas (4)
½ red pepper, cut into strips
½ green pepper, cut into strips
1 small onion, cut into strips
¼ fresh salsa
3 T of fat free sour cream
½ cup of shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup of sprouted beans
Debone the chicken thigh and cut into strips or bite sized pieces. Marinate in the lime juice and chili pepper. Chop the vegetables while chicken marinates. In a grill pan or heavy cast iron pan, heat the oil and add the chicken and the marinating liquid. Turn over when golden coloured. When chicken is almost done, throw in the onions and peppers and saute until the pepper and onions char and soften slightly.
Over the flame of your gas stove, heat tortillas for about 5-10 seconds until warm and soft (I like mine a bit charred). Put some of the fajita mixture on top of the heated tortilla and top with a bit of cheese, salsa, sprouted beans and salsa. Add hot sauce, if you like.
