Today we are gonna talk about a beautiful beautiful food. The Fajita MMMM soooo GOOOD
This little number can be very pricy at a restaurant and who has the money to buy all the different spices that go in a Fajita recipe so I have a cooking hack for you that you are not going to be able to resist.
In college I always was budgeting, why buy name brand when the store brand is 85 cents?
So in a pinch this recipe would pull me through to impress friends. An easy way to do this in a room mate situation is to divvy up the ingredients and have everyone help with the shopping.
College Kid Fajitas
1lb of “Meat” ( Chicken, Shrimp, Tofu, and if you have that cash money steak)
1 sweet onion divided in half and sliced
1lb Mushrooms (optional)
1 Green bell pepper
1 Orange bell pepper
1 Red bell pepper
1 Yellow bell pepper
(peppers are optional but its good to have at least one)
Flour or Corn Tortillas of your choice
1 Packet of Taco Seasoning
2 table spoons of worcestershire sauce
1 clove garlic
Slice thin the “meat” (unless tofu do chunks, or shrimp leave whole or butterfly if large) ALSO if you are using tofu you might want to use the marinade below to soak the tofu overnight.
Combine the Worcestershire sauce and taco seasoning add the meat and toss. Allow to rest while prepping the vegetables.
Cook the onion in a large sauté pan with the chopped clove of garlic till soft and tender. Toss in the meat and sauté for about 2 min, then add the peppers and mushrooms and sautee until the peppers are tender and the mushrooms have become tender, mushrooms tend to shrink once they are cooked through.
Once everything is ready heat up the tortillas in the microwave buy stacking them on a plate and placing a damp NOT WET paper towel over them, microwave for 30 seconds or until steamed.
Assemble and enjoy.
