Posting "What I Cooked for Dinner" (now just "Dinner") definitely makes our evening meal a little more self conscious--things are just slightly more presentable as when you are having guests to dinner. Only no guests--just my camera. And it's just the food that is more presentable. It's very real here. This one wants just meat in a tortilla and no onions or peppers. Another one wants just guacamole in a corn tortilla. Of course, I always set the table. I LOVE setting the table with real silver and china. It's just my thing. And it is not because I have my camera out- I just love the sparkle of silver on a Wednesday.
Well, everyone ate something. I certainly served a balanced meal--and have the pictures to prove it. Which, I have been told is my job. To present healthy food and let everyone else figure out what they want to eat. Below is my recipe for steak fajitas and guacamole.
STEAK FAJITAS RECIPE
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 red pepper, thinly sliced
1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped or smashed
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon salt
8 soft or hard corn tacos
Heat olive oil in large pan. Add sliced red pepper, yellow onion and garlic. Saute until the onions are translucent and carmelized. Then add the spices and steak. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes until steak is warm. Cut a lime in half and drizzle over lime juice over fajitas. Insert a fork in the center of the lime to help squeeze the juice out.
Serve with corn tacos, daiya cheese, a wedge of lime and guacamole
Cucumber Chips are a favorite way to dress up this average vegetable. Just cut 1/4 inch rounds and arrange in a circle on a plate.
1.5 Tablespoons lemon juice (about 1/2 to a whole lemon)
4-10 splashes tabasco sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Mash avocados. Add seasoning. Mix well. Serve with tortilla chips or cucumber chips.
