Honey Fajita’s

Honey Fajitas

There are just some days when you want a really good fajita and this recipe is phenomenal! The chicken and beef come out so tender and flavorful. I also really liked that the saltiness of the Worcestershire sauce was complimented by the sweetness of honey. I used Rocky Ford honey because I really like the flavor it brings to this dish. What I love most about this combination is that you can place this on a tortilla or on top of salad greens and have an amazing meal no matter what! You can also add extra vegetables to add more flavors too! I hope you are as buzzed about this recipe as much as I am!

Ingredients:

1 pound Chicken

1 pound Beef

¼ cup Honey

2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce

2 Tbsp. olive oil

2 tsp. salt

1 tsp. pepper

2 green peppers

½ a sliced onion

½ cup sliced mushrooms

½ cup of Monterey Jack Cheese

½ cup of cheddar Cheese

½ cup Pico De Gallo- optional

1 Tbsp. sour cream- optional

Tortillas

Directions:

Cut up the chicken and the beef into slices. Take 2 gallon sized bags and put the honey, Worcestershire sauce, oil, salt, and pepper into each bag then put chicken in one and beef in the other. Tightly close the bags and move the meat around to thoroughly coat the meat; place in the meat in the fridge overnight. In the morning move the meat around again to make sure all pieces get a good coat, place back in the fridge.

Slice up the onion, green pepper, and mushrooms.

In two separate sauce pans; add a Tbsp. of olive oil to each sauté pan, put the heat in between the middle between medium and high. Add the onion to each pan and sauté until they are see through. Add the bell pepper and cook for 3 minutes. Then drain the beef in a colander and add to one sauté pan; do the same with the chicken and place in the other pan. Cook for 6-8 minutes or until the meat is at desired consistency.

Shred the cheese into a bowl.

Serve with Pico De Gallo, sour cream, and tortillas! Can serve these with beans and rice for sides!

Tips:

  • Try this recipe with shrimp
  • Add extra color by using purple onion and yellow peppers
  • Use romaine lettuce instead of a tortilla

Honey Beef with zucchini noodles

20180827_192021

This year has been super exciting for us; we have improved on our gardening!!! We actually grew cherry tomatoes, carrots, flowers, and zucchini!! We have learned from some of our mistakes and will do much better next year, but for now it is so exciting to see what we did this year. I normally put honey beef on Jasmine rice, but I have fallen in love with zucchini noodles! Not only are you getting more vegetables in the diet, but they add a great flavor to the dish. Try it both ways and see which one you like better!

Ingredients:

1 ½ cups- Broccoli

¾ cup- Celery

1 shredded carrot

1- 6 inch Zucchini

1 pound- Sliced beef stir fry meat

¼ cup-Balsamic vinegar

1 tsp.-Garlic

¼ cup- Honey

1 Tbsp.-Coconut oil

Directions:

Cut the broccoli and celery into bite sized pieces and put into a bowl; then shred the carrot into the bowl on top of the broccoli and celery. Take the zucchini and spiralize it into a separate bowl. Put the sliced beef stir meat, the balsamic vinegar, and garlic into a sauté pan. Cook on medium heat for about five minutes. Add the broccoli, celery, and carrot into the sauté pan and cook for 10 minutes. While that is cooking; in another sauté pan warm up the coconut oil on medium to high heat and put the spiralized zucchini into the pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes and place into a bowl or on a serving plate, add the meat and the vegetables on top. Drizzle your favorite honey right on top and serve! ENJOY!

Tips:
