Recipe 5: Beef or Chicken Fajitas


850g beef or chicken breast, cut 1/4-1/2 inch thick


5 tbsp. olive oil

Juice of 1 lemon or lime

4 garlic cloves, peeled & mashed

1 tsp. chilli powder

1 tsp. dried thyme

1 tsp. dried oregano


1 red pepper, cored & sliced into thin strips

1/2 white onion, sliced into thin wedges


Mix oil, lemon or lime juice, chilli, thyme and oregano. Place chicken in marinade and put in the fridge for several hours or just 1 hour if that's all you have. Remove chicken from the marinade.

In a heavy pan sauté the meat until almost fully cooked, about 3 min per side. Add the onions to the pan and sauté for about 3 more minutes, then add the peppers and sauté for 2 more minutes. Serve with whole wheat tortillas or organic soft corn tortillas and a side of guacamole, grated organic cheese (optional) and organic sour cream or plain yoghurt.
