Homemade Chicken Fajitas (homemade spice mix, flat bread, salsa & guacamole)

IMG_5896

The kids at our cookery camps and birthday parties always love these fajitas! I know you can buy packs of ready made spice mix and salsa but making your own is always better as you are guaranteed there are no added sugars, salts or preservatives. Also, once you have the spices, this is a cheaper way of doing it! The kids at the cookery school always love making their own flat breads but this is not essential!

Homemade Wraps:

Ingredients:

250g Flour

½ tsp Salt

175ml Water

3 tblsp Olive Oil

Method:

Put the flour and salt in a bowl and make a little well in the middle, add the oil and water to this.

Mix it all together and knead it for about 10 minutes

Shape the dough into a ball & put the dough back in the bowl, cover with cling film and leave in a warm place for at least half an hour (or even overnight if you want)

When you are ready to cook them, put the dough out on a worktop with some flour on it.

Cut the dough into golf ball sized pieces and roll out into a circle, as thin as possible.

Heat a dry frying pan & place your tortilla wrap into it. When it starts to blister & bubble, carefully turn it over and cook the other side.

For the Spice Mix:

Mix together: 1 tsp sea salt , 1 tsp caster sugar,  1 tsp ground cumin,  1 tsp ground coriander,  ½  tsp chili powder,  ½  tsp oregano , ½ tsp ground black pepper, ½ tsp paprika

Tomato Salsa

2 Tomatoes, chopped

1 clove of garlic, minced

½ a red onion,

1 tsp sugar

2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

A handful of fresh coriander chopped

Pinch of Sea Salt

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl

To make the Chicken Fajitas:

Ingredients:

2 Chicken Breast Fillets

3 tablespoons Spice Mix

½ a Red Pepper, slice lengthways

½ an Onion, sliced

Some Cheddar cheese, grated

A few dollops of Sour Cream

Some Groundnut or Vegetable Oil, to cook

Method:

Place the Chicken, Peppers & Onions in a large bowl and sprinkle the seasoning over and mix it through with a spoon

Heat the oil in a frying pan and add the chicken & vegetables

Stir fry until the chicken is cooked through. You can check this by taking a piece out of the pan and cutting it in half. If it is completely white on the inside, it is cooked.

Place the chicken and peppers & onions into the middle of a tortilla wrap and add the cheese, salsa and sour cream. Roll one side of the wrap over to the middle, then tuck in the end and roll the other side of the wrap over.
