FAJITA BOWLS

FAJITA BOWLS

We love Mexican food! We’ve dreamt up loads of recipes from Burrito Samosas to Guacaroni but this Fajita Bowl might be our all time fave! We used our pal Derek Sarno’s famous mushroom pulling technique for the mushroom chicken, such a simple and effective technique!

Method

  1. 1.

    Preheat oven to 180*C | Microplane | Mixing bowl | 2 baking trays lined with parchment


    First, make the Fajita Marinade | Peel and finely grate the garlic | Cut the lime in half and squeeze the juice into a mixing bowl | Add all the rest of the ingredients to the mixing bowl and mix with a fork to form a smooth marinade


    Now, prepare the Fajita Vegetables | Trim, halve, core and slice the peppers | Peel, halve and cut the onion into slices | Cut the caps off the mushrooms and slice | Pull the stems of the mushrooms with two forks until they’re well shredded | Add the mushrooms to the marinade and toss to coat (don’t use all the marinade as you need some for the rest of the veggies) | Transfer the marinated mushrooms to the baking tray, put the tray in the oven and roast for 10 minutes | While the mushrooms are in the oven, put the peppers and onions in the bowl and toss to cover in the marinade | Take the mushrooms out of the oven, add the peppers and onion to the tray, put the tray back in the oven and roast for a further 20 minutes


    Now make the guacamole | Halve, destone and scoop the flesh of the avocado out of the skin, put it in a bowl and mash with the back of a fork | Finely chop the cherry tomatoes | Trim and finely slice the spring onion | Trim, halve, deseed and dice the chilli | Halve the lime and squeeze into the bowl | Roughly chop the coriander | Add all the ingredients to the bowl and fold to combine


    Now prepare the rest of the fajita bowl | Cut the tortillas into 8 pieces (like a pizza) | Spread the slices out on the baking tray and spray with cooking spray on both sides | Put the tray in the oven and bake the slices for 5-10 minutes until crunchy | Drain, rinse and pat dry the black beans and sweetcorn | Cook the rice as instructed on the packet | Dice the large tomato | Trim and finely slice the spring onion | Roughly chop the coriander | Shred the lettuce


    Put the rice, black beans, sweetcorn, tomato, spring onions, coriander leaves in a bowl and fold to combine | Taste and season to perfection with salt, pepper and tabasco


    Remove the mushrooms, peppers and onions from the oven and stir to combine


    Now, build the Fajita Bowls | Add ¼ of the rice and bean mix to a serving bowl | Make a “crown” of tortilla chips around the side of the bowl | Sprinkle the lettuce over the rice and bean mix | Top the rice with ¼ of the Fajita Vegetables | Top the Fajita Vegetables with a dollop of guacamole | Repeat 3 times and serve!
