Fajitas



My life needed some color asap, so this is what my styling skills cooked up. Very simple, not really color-coordinated or anything, but I really like it anyway. I guess I just can't resist an outfit that combines bright colors and florals! Speaking of colors and florals: followers of my tumblr know that I bought a ridiculous/awesome vintage floral dress in the style of Betty Draper on crack for A MERE 14 EUROS.
Very subtle, right? Can't wait to see how it looks in person.


I got together with my faaaavorite classmate Julie today, she's leaving next Wednesday to finish the rest of the schoolyear in ITALY (so jealous) and she's doing her masteryear in a different city than me so we won't get the chance to have fun and giggle together in class anymore :( I'm going to miss you, sweets!


It has been a while since I've posted proof of my cookingskills ovah heyah, so here are some pictures of my spicy chicken fajitas! Looks much better in real life than in these pictures, but my kitchen has horrible lighting at night.


Ingredients:
  • ground chicken
  • a can of (crispy) corn
  • tomatosauce (I buy tomatosauce that has a bit of creamcheese in it, for a soft flavor that counteracts the spices)
  • a red pepper (the non spicy variety)
  • fajitas (store bought)
  • black pepper
  • cayenne pepper
  • paprika powder
  • curry powder
  • turmeric (kurkuma)
  • oregano
  • a tiny bit of tomato ketchup
  • lemon juice
  • worcestersauce
  • iceberg lettuce
  • and a big dollop of sour cream
  • usually I also add red beans but I forgot to buy them and it tastes good without them too
Preparation is pretty straightforward: cut up the red pepper and fry it with the ground chicken while throwing in all the herbs (if you don't have everything: don't worry, you can use whatever you think works, I just really love these flavors together) and the ketchup (I use like 2-3 tbsps). When the chicken is browned, add the tomato sauce and the corn. Finish off with the lemon juice and worcestersauce to add a bit of extra zing to the flavor. Heat a fajita: I just lay mine on a low heat cooking plate until they're sufficiently warm. Plate the fajita, throw on the meatsauce, sprinkle some (read: lots) sliced iceberg lettuce on top, and let your creativity speak when rolling up the fajita. Finish with a lovely dollop of sour cream (I love this stuff) and start eating! 
For peoplez who want a low calorie version: the meatsauce, lettuce and sourcream taste absolutely divine without the fajita too, and you could probably use a yoghurtdressing instead of the sour cream!

  16. snazzy outfit...

    Coordination: It's over-rated in colors as it is (for me) in walking ;-)

  17. Don't take this the wrong way, but your recipe for fajitas really fascinates me because it's all...European-ized, I guess! Living in CA, there's a lot of super authentic taquerias and stuff, and it's just interesting to see how people modify food to suit their tastes. As for me, I like it all :D Salty? Cheesy? Spicy? Sign me up.

    I love your orange sweater! I know I've said it before... it's just so glorious. And your dress is SUCH a steal, wow!

    By the way, is there any chance you'd be willing to do a guest post for me next week? If you can, would you either shoot me an email or just tell me your email address? mine is sophi.newman[@]gmail.com :)
