No recipe Fajitas from Vicki Delany

This is another no-recipe recipe from me in which you can use pretty much anything you have on hand. This is particularly good for using up left-over meat and vegetables.  Having three people for dinner but the package contains four pork chops? Save one to make this meal for one. I use both chicken breasts and pork chops to make this, and the quantities are totally adaptable according to how many people you are feeding.

No Recipe Fajita

Ingredients for two fajitas.

One pork chop or small chicken breast, boneless. Cut into cubes

One onion, chopped

One clove garlic, minced

Handful mushrooms, chopped

Half sweet red pepper

Chopped hot pepper – optional and to taste.

1 tbsp chilli powder

Salt and pepper

2 tortillas (for one serving)

Sour cream

Half avocado (optional), diced

Chopped tomato or salsa


Sauté onions, garlic, and peppers in olive oil until soft.  Add mushrooms. Stir in chilli powder and season with salt and pepper. Add meat and cook until meat is cooked through

Warm tortillas one at a time in frying pan and remove to serving plate.  Lightly cover with sour cream, avocado, chopped tomatoes or salsa, and then add the meat and vegetable mixture in a line down the middle. Fold bottom of tortilla up, and tuck in sides to make a package.
