I love fajitas. In fact I love all Mexican food. What I am most impressed by it is how easy it is to make it at home (and how easy it is to show off with it!).

I used a fantastic, all-inclusive fajitas kit from Lidl’s (The El Tequito Wrap Kit) ready-made pitas, spice mix and tomato salsa and added all the fresh ingredients. It literally took less than 30 minutes to prepare the whole meal for four people (that’s right, 30 minutes!)
INGREDIENTS
Guacamole
1 ripe avocado
1 chopped tomato
1 chopped onion
bunch of coriander (chopped)
juice from 1 lemon or lime
Tomato salad
1 chopped tomato
1/2 chopped onion
Fajita mix
2 green peppers cut in long strips
2 orange peppers cut in long strips
2 red peppers cut in long strips
1 large onion cut in rings
1/2 bag of prawns
1 fajita spice mix from El Tequito Fajita Wrap Kit (Lidl’s)
1 fajita salsa from El Tequito Fajita Wrap Kit (Lidl’s)
pitas from El Tequito Fajita Wrap Kit (Lidl’s)
METHOD
Guacamole
Cut and mash avocado with a fork. Add the rest of the thinly chopped ingredients with the lemon juice and mix well (it’s that easy!)
Tomato salad
Simply mix the chopped tomatoes with the onion and add salt and pepper to taste
Fajita mix
Add a spoon of olive oil and fry the onion for 1-2 minutes. Add all of the fresh ingredients and mix in the fajita spice mix. Fry lightly for 7-8 minutes until the peppers are soft and add the tomato fajita salsa. Mix well and let it settle for 10 minutes.
For the pitas: 1-2 drops of water on each and warm for 5 minutes. Serve them immediately.
I also added sheep’s yoghurt (instead of sour cream) to perfect the fajita experience but feel free to make your pita as you prefer.
You can always use chicken or beef strips if you prefer.

  1. Cmon mate… it takes one minute to make the spice mix from scratch, the ready mixes are fully laden with unnecessary sugar and salt. If you make it often, as it seems you do, it’s worth buying the ingredients for the mix.

    • Sure I agree and actually have made the mix before, but the fact that you get the pitas, the mix and the salsa all in one box truly makes it easier 🙂
