Fajitas are so simple to make and are extremely popular as they're delicious and combine lots of fresh flavours and spices. They're also low in carbs and easy to turn into healthy recipes. Here is our version of a Mexican favourite.

INGREDIENTS

For the fajitas:

  • 2 chicken breasts, sliced into strips
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 2 bell peppers, sliced into strips
  • 1 cup mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 small red onion, sliced into narrow strips
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 gluten-free tortillas
  • 2-4 tbsp oil (your preferred choice)

Tip - Healthier oils to cook with include rapeseed, avocado, coconut and extra-virgin olive oil.

For the mango salsa:

  • 1 ripe mango, peeled
  • 1/2 medium red onion, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 cucumber, diced
  • 1 small handful fresh coriander, shredded
  • 1 whole lime, juice
  • dash of sea salt

Yields 2 servings

DIRECTIONS

Slice chicken into strips and combine with the lime juice and 1tbsp of the chili powder, 1/2 tsp cumin, 1/2 tsp sea salt and 1/2 tsp black pepper in a large bowl or ziploc bag. You can either marinate the chicken in the spices the day before for up to 24 hours or you can cook it immediately.

Prepare a batch of the mango salsa. To do this cut the mango halves off the stone and slice each half in a criss-cross shape. Cut off and finely chop the flesh with the onion, cucumber and coriander leaves, then scrape into a bowl. Squeeze in the lime juice and mix well. Season to taste with sea salt.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat and grease with 1-2 tbsp of oil. Add the chicken and cook until no pink remains.

In a large wok, heat 3-4 tbsp of oil over medium heat. Add the onions, mushrooms, garlic and remaining spices and cook for 3-4 minutes before adding the bell peppers. Cook an additional 2-3 minutes and then add the chicken to the wok and remove from heat.

Prepare your fajitas by adding the vegetable and chicken mixture and topped with dollops of mango salsa to each tortilla.

Optional - Store leftovers separately in the fridge and make the fajitas only immediately prior to serving.
