Fajitas are Spanish and are most pronounced as ‘fahitas’. It is grilled meat, which is served in a tortilla. Originally it was served with beef steak, but today you can get them with almost all kinds of meat – even with prawns.

In addition to the meat, there are sliced ​​vegetables, and they are served with guacamole, salsa, yoghurt and cheese, as well as lime.


Fajitas recipe

I am making my fajitas after the famous British television cook, cookbook writer, etc., Jamie Oliver’s recipe with a twist. I added guacamole, salsa, and maybe even yogurt – although Mr. Oliver could easily make it to perfection.


Servings: max. 4 person

  • 2 red peppers
  • 2 red onions
  • 500 g chicken breast pieces without skin
  • 2 tsp. smoked paprika
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • 2 limes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 big tortillas
  • 1½ dl guacamole
  • 1½ dl salsa
  • 2 dl yogurt
  • 100 g cheddar cheese
  • Pepper


  1. Cut the red peppers in half, remove the stick and kernels and cut the peppers into strips.
  2. Peel and cut the onions into small pieces.
  3. Cut the chicken breast into strips of the same size as the peppers.
  4. Bring peppers, onions and chicken in a bowl together with smoked paprika and cumin sauce.
  5. Press 1 paste over, spread over olive oil and season with freshly ground black pepper.
  6. Mix it all well.
  7. Heat a barbecue pan with high heat.
  8. Get the bowl of pepper, onion and chicken on the pan – use if necessary a sausage or the like – and let it fry for 6-8 minutes until the chicken is golden thorough. Keep turning the ingredients so that they do not get burned on the very hot forehead.
  9. Prepare ½ lime.
  10. Warm the tortillas in the microwave or on a dry hot pan.
  11. Put it all on the table and let each person “pack” their own food themselves.
  12. Serve with guacamole, salsa, yogurt, limes and grated cheddar.
