Easy Recipes: Mrs. B’s Cookery’s Chicken Fajitas Recipe

If you’re familiar with my blogs, you know that preparing food and trying out recipes is one of my most favorite things to do in the world. I haven’t had much opportunity to do so lately, but when I tasted my friend Edz Bacani’s Fajitas recipe, I just had to try it for myself and blog about it.

I love Mexican food. When Jay and I were still doing gigs in Jupiter street, we would drop by the popular Mexican fastfood, Miggy’s, before we would trudge to EDSA to get a ride back to Las Pinas where we used to live.

There are no Miggy’s around where we live now, but there’s Mexicali several blocks up (Serendra), one of my favorite places to hang out in by myself when they’re not full house.

I always go for Burritos, but Tacos isΒ so much easier to make. We usually have that here on Sundays when Jay and I are just too lazy to prepare anything else. One thing I like about most mexican food is that they’re usually affordable. Anyway, I read that Fajitas is Texan-Mexican, not purely Mexican.

Enough of the chit-chat. Here are the stuff you need to get for your Fajitas:

Ingredients:

1/2 Kilo Skinless Chicken breasts (I got me a half kilo of chicken strips to lessen the slicing work)

1 Medium Cucumber, chopped
2 Bell Peppers, Red and Green, sliced thinly
1 Large onion (Mrs. B’s recipe says red, but I’m a great white onion fan!), thinly slice half of the onions, then, use the remaining half for the simple salsa below
1 Can of Corn kernels

2 Tbsp of Lemon (Philippine lemons will do, if you’re on a budget)
2 Tbsp Olive oil
1-2 cloves of Garlic, minced
Cumin powder
Chilli powder
Iodized salt
Ground pepper
Tomatoes and Onions (use half of the large onion above), chopped and mixed together to make simple salsa
Grated Cheese
Extra Lemon/s

Tortillas


There’s a lot of ingredients so it may seem like a lot of work, but nope, not a lot of work at all.

  1. The Fajitas look absolutely delicious! And what’s great is that it’s easy to do, I can definitely mimic this recipe!

  2. I’m actually planning to make Chicken Fajitas this long weekend! How funny is that? Although the recipe is way simpler than this one and has a different set of ingredients, plus I’m going to try and make handmade tortillas. Hope it goes well as yours did. πŸ™‚

  3. Ooooh. I do remember Miggy’s. My brother and I used to go there a lot with our Mom. I love Mexican food. I love fajitas. I have made one but this just made me excited – can’t wait to prepare this at home.

  4. We have taco night at my home once a week and i usually make hard shell tacos or burritos. I will definitely try this fajita recipe to change it up a bit. It looks delicious and wont take me a long time to make.

  5. I’ve always loved Burritos, Fajitas, and Quesadillas but I’ve never tried making these at home. I’ll try the Fajitas out and let you know what I think. From the list of ingredients, it looks like this is a winner.

  6. I love tacos, but I love burritos more. Burritos are easier to eat than tacos because of the soft wrap. Tacos tend to be messier because the crust is crumbly. This recipe sounds delicious.

  7. With all honesty, I’m not familiar with this kind of food since Mexican foods are usually rich in flavor (hot) or too many vegetables which I don’t eat. But this recipe will be great to keep for future use. Though I don’t eat this, it would be great to try, make and serve to house visitors or small parties.

  8. I love Miggy’s too πŸ™‚ They used to have a branch near us and we always go there for a quick merienda πŸ™‚ Sayang, wala na. Love this recipe, though yes, dami nga ingredients. I’ll try this too πŸ™‚

  9. I love that the instructions are so simple! I love your recipes btw and still use a few once in a while. Will see if I can get the ingredients for this then maybe try it too. Thanks for sharing!

  10. We used to hang out in Mexicali Serendra after our Kindermusik class. We love their garden burger. I’ll prepare this chicken fajitas recipe for my nanay’s birthday this month. May, please give your most simple cake/cookie/cupcake recipe. I need to use my oven. Baka masira na at hindi nagagamit! Thanks!
