{ fajitas & guac }

Nothing tastes better to us. We love mexican food, and could probably eat it for every meal. One downside to paleo is, you can't have the tortilla that would normally go along side a yummy fajita or taco. So, we either throw it on a leaf of lettuce or turn it into a salad. We've tried making paleo taco shells...and to be honest, they were just OK and I ended up not eating them anyways. If I'm going to eat a taco shell it's going to be the real thing.

This recipe includes a fajita seasoning mix, and guacamole. Store bought packaged powders are generally packed with crap and words we can't even pronounce...making our own has become something we adapted to in the very beginning. This way we could enjoy all our favorite foods. You could make a bigger batch of the seasoning, and save it for future use if you please. Anyway, enough talk...enjoy! :)
 FAJITAS/ FAJITA SEASONING
serves 2-3, and makes "1-packet of seasoning..."
  • 2 organic free-range chicken breasts
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1/2-1 onion
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil {or coconut oil} 

For the seasoning:
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
1. Slice bell peppers, and onion; Chop/slice your chicken. Set aside. Then mix all dry ingredients in a bowl or baggie, mix together.

2. Toss your meat and vegetables lightly with olive oil {or coconut oil}- then coat with the dry fajita seasoning mix to prepare for cooking.

3. Add all ingredients to a large frying pan, over medium-high heat; saute veggies and meat until cooked through. Serve with your favorite side--we like guacamole {recipe below} and a bed of lettuce!

BEST EVER--GUACAMOLE
  • 2-3 {depending on size} ripe organic avocados
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  •  handful of fresh cilantro, minced
  • 1/2 cup mezzeta jarred jalapenos, minced {or whatever brand you like}
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • garlic powder to taste
  • salt & pepper to taste
1. Guacamole is pretty self explanatory. {at lease we think so} Most of the time we don't even measure the ingredients--just added them to taste. So, you may have to adjust and play around with this recipe to your liking. Chop/mince everything and mix in a bowl {we use a mini food processor for the cilantro and jalapenos}....and CHOW!
