Fajitas party!

My son Martin is a huge fajitas fan, and through the years we have made fajitas on a regular basis. Not only is it delicious, but also very healthy! Lots of vegetables and chicken, and for the low-carbers, just elminate the tortilla.

For a proper Fajitas Party you will need the following:

  • Fajitas chicken (or beef)
  • Onion and paprika
  • Smashed black beans
  • Guacamole
  • Pico de gallo (Mexican tomatosalsa)

All these have recipes below, and in addition you will need:

  • Tortillas
  • Sour cream
  • Corn, optional
  • Grated cheese, optional

All the recipes are for 6 persons.

Onion and paprika mix

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 3 red paprikas, sliced
  • 3 yellow onions, in this rings

Heat the oil in a pan on high heat, (or in a pan on the bbq). Add onion and paprika and fry while stirring constantly, until the vegetables are starting to brown. Turn down the heat, and let them simmer further 10-15 minutes, until they are soft and sweet, and ready to serve.

Smashed black beans

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cloves or garlic
  • 2 x 400 gr cans of black beans

Heat the oil in a pan. Add garlic, and saute for a minute while stirring. Add the black beans. Season with salt and pepper, and saute further 2 minutes. The black beans are so soft that they will be “smashed” just by stirring.


  • 3 ripe avocadoes, peeled and stone removed
  • 1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 red chili, seeds removed and finely chopped
  • the juice of ½ lime

In a bolw, mix avocado together with garlic, shallot and chili, and mash it roughly with a fork. Stir in lime juice, and season with salt and pepper.

Fajitas chicken

  • 1 kg chicken breast, cut into strips
    • or you can use beef or minced meat
  • 2 packs of good quality fajitas spices*
  • 200 ml of white wine

Mix fajitas spices and white wine in a blow. Add the chicken and mix well, so all the pieces get covered by wine and spices. Let it marinate for a coule of hours.

Just before serving, panfry the chicken on moderately high heat until tender and cooked through.

Pico de gallo

  • 4 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 red onion, finely choped
  • 1 tbsp jalapeno pepper form a jar, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves or garlic, pressed
  • a small bunch of coriander
  • the juice from ½ lime

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Salt and pepper carefully, and let the salsa sit in the fridge for a couple of hours. This can also be made the day before. Take the salsa out of the frige appr 20 minutes before serving, to get it up to room temperature.
