i'm in the mood for fajitas. here in Malaysia the only restaurant that serve a descent fajitas is Chilies but its so expensive...i'm still broke thanx to my car....*long sigh* so i can't go out and spend money on luxury dining...and nither do my husband, our money stuck in an insurance claim the doctor was 'lazy' to write a report to the insurance company so we are all financially tied up. so what do i do? i have this huge craving of fajitas..and the AFC channel does not help =p
so i went to cold storage and buy me a pack of potato tortilla, some chicken breasts, cheese, and i looked for sour cream but couldn't find it...the rest i just use what ever i have in my pantry. so my culinary journy begins.....this recipe is 100% my own creation according to my taste so if you dun like it i'd like to use this as my exclusion clause ^_^
to create my own recipe for fajitas i went thru what i we like in a fajitas
we like caramelized onions, grilled chicken or beef, sour cream, cheese....
so i just incorporate them n make my very own fajitas...well unfortunately we couldn't find sour cream so no sour cream in this recipe...
so what you need:
grilled beef or chicken
tortillas store bought or home made what ever...mine was store bought sad to say coz i was to lazy for that...>_< style="font-weight: bold;">Balsamic Caramelized onion.
1tbsp balsamic vinegar (i love this)
a dash of salt
2 large onions sliced moderately
1 cube of butter
saute onions with butter until soft and when you see it starting to brown a little bit then add in all other ingredients. stir occasionally coz you don't want to burn it or anything. it took me about or almost 20 or so (maybe less can remember) to have the onions nicely caramelized. it all depends on what kind of heat you're using really....once caramelized that means the onions turned brown then you can set it aside
for the Grilled Balsamic Chicken
1 clove garlic - mashed or crushed
1 tsp paprika powder
slat to taste
1 tsp honey
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
A pack of chicken breast strips ( bought ready from the supermarket)
combine all the above ingredients and marinade at least for 2 hours then start grilling until done...
to assemble fajitas? are you kidding me? just put all the ingredients and start wrapping it with tortillas and open your mouth and start munching!
well anyway this would probably be my best dinner ever and it tasted great too coz of the caramelized onion....i know i know this dish may be ordinary for you angmos or gaijin (that means foreigners / mat salleh...also means white people or alike in chinese/japanese... i think) *mmm ponders* but us malaysian...maybe malay or maybe just me its something that we don't always eat or find... i like burritos too but burritos gives me gas...so i'm not sure if i'd make it in the future anyway...wooops off topic *big grins*
anyway hope you'll enjoy this recipe as much as i did...and i'm thinking to make this alot often coz this works for me!
