I really don’t have any set recipes. I usually just make up something with whatever food I have on hand and sometimes I try to be creative. Today, I went with a pretty simple and basic approach to the salsa and fajitas. Sometimes I put in the time to marinade the beef, or make a rub, but not today. Often times I have found that the simpler the process the tastier.
In a food processor pulse blend the following ingredients:
4 roma tomatoes
3 Serrano peppers
4 small cloves of garlic
Tsp Dried Chives (I used instead of onions to see how they tasted. It turned out pretty good.)
1 Tbs of oregeno
Sea Salt to taste
Today I bought 1 lbs of precut stir fry beef.
Very lightly oil the skillet and place on a medium heat.
Saute sliced onions.
After 2 minutes add the the beef.
For the first few minutes, I stir frequently until the beef looks like it is begining to be cooked all over. I then let it sit with out stirring in order to slightly char the onions and beef. Do not blacken or burn it. The key is a very slight char to add a little more complexity to the flavor. While the beef is sitting on the skillet I added tsp of cumin and a tsp of basil. After the one side has begun to char, I stir the mixture and allow the mixture to slightly char on the other side.
Add the fajita mix to a tortilla. Top it off with your favorite fajita toppings: avacoda, sour cream, guacamole, etc.. Slather on the salsa. Roll it up and eat it.
That was it today. Pretty simple and fast. The whole process took less than 20 minutes. If I do say so myself, they tasted amazing.
