Fajitas
-------
You could eat fajitas, with lots of peppers, onions, and tomatoes. I
know you can't put sour cream on that, but you sure can have guacamole!
No, fajitas are meat -- beef is most common, but I've seen chicken,
shrimp, or mixed -- cooked with onions, peppers, and tomatoes on a hot
iron skillet. Brought to the table on said skillet, if you're at a good
Mexican restaurant. Served with tortillas, but nobody's gonna make you
eat 'em! I'm Atkins/PP, so I just pile guac, pico de gallo, and sour
cream on top, and eat with a fork. Leave off the sour cream, and you've
got a paleo feast!
I approximate fajitas at home by cooking the mentioned ingredients in my
iron frying pan, seasoning with cumin, and lime juice. Bet if you looked
at a Mexican cookbook, you'd find a good recipe.
