Why not have a Mexican Party this weekend???!!! Olé!

What with it being MOVEMBER and it apparently being National Guacamole Day on Sunday 14th November - I figured why not throw a Mexican night in celebration of the great avocado and give yourself an excuse to put on your sombreros, knock back some Margarita's and eat some delicious fajitas!!!! Olé!

I have to have a choice of chicken or beef whenever i make fajitas so you will need to make three dishes for this delicious feast (which feeds 8 people!) - Chicken Dish, Beef dish and Guacamole. You also need to serve it with Sour Creme, Salsa, lettuce leaves and Tortillas which you can just buy from the supermarket!



For the Chicken
4 Chicken Breasts cut into slices
1 onion sliced
1 red pepper sliced
1 yellow pepper sliced
1 green pepper sliced
1 lime juice
tsp Oregano
tsp flour
1/4 pint chicken stock (1 oxo cube)

Fry the Chicken for about 4-5 minutes until sealed on all sides (add pepper and salt as you wish!). Reduce the heat to medium and add the onion, fry for 2-3 minutes then add all the peppers and lime juice. Fry for a further 5 minutes then add the oregano and flour and mix well for 2 minutes. then add the chicken stock, turn the heat to very low and leave to simmer for 10 mins. Serve in a big bowl and place on the table! 

For the Beef
500g Minced Beef
1 onion sliced
2 tbsp Tomato Puree
1 Red Chili
1 red pepper sliced
1 yellow pepper sliced
1 green pepper sliced
1 lime juice
Half a bunch of Finely Chopped Coriander
tsp flour
1/4 pint beef stock (1 oxo cube!)
A tin of Sweet corn

Fry the onion for about 3-4 minutes until soft. Add the beef and cook for a further 5-6 minutes until browned (add pepper and salt as you wish!). Add the tomato puree and chili and cook for 1 minute. Reduce the heat to medium and Add the peppers and lime juice and cook for 2 minutes. Add the coriander and flour and mix well for 2 minutes. Add the beef stock and sweetcorn, turn the heat to very low and leave to simmer for 10 mins. Serve in a big bowl next to the chicken!

For the Guacamole
2 Avocados - peel, remove stones and chop!
2 Spring onions finely chopped
1 garlic clove finely chopped
10 or so cherry tomatoes finely chopped
