So, Buddy has created a Food Group on Facebook and I have no idea how to upload an entire series of pics/text so I'm going to pop the recipe on here and see if I can somehow get it exported/imported into FB. Bear with me.
Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings provide today's musical selection, along with some [pre-disco] Bee Gees, Dylan and Jeff Healey. You can play whatever you want! (warning this meal takes a bit of time and work, but is worth it)!
We start with the ingredients for the Salsa:
Diced tomatos of your choice
Cumin & corriander to taste ( I usually go with a couple of tablespoons of each).
A bit of onion and anything else you like in your salsa...it is after all, your salsa!
Combine and heat on stove, turn down to simmer once boiling.
Lemon and Lime juice
Pinch of chilli powder
Combine the Guacamole ingredients, chopped and place in fridge. Remember to place the pit in the mixture as this keeps the oxidization process at bay for a bit.
Protein...your choice of...
Today we had pan fried chicken breast with garlic, olive oil and cracked black pepper...anything you like could be the protein...fish, steak, whatever.
Cook and keep warm.
Here's the time consumer...the tortillas!
I use about 3 cups of flour, a couple of tablespoons of margarine and approximately a cup or so of lukewarm/hot water.
Pinch the margarine through the flour until all mixed in then add the water and knead into a dough...just like making bread.
Once the dough has been made, tear off bits to roll up into ping pong size balls. Three cups of flour will make about 18-20 balls. Place in a bowl and drizzle lightly with olive oil. Gently stir the balls around so the oil coats them.
Toss some flour on the counter top and flatten the balls out with the heel of your hand.
Keeping plenty of flour on the surface, roll out the balls very thinly (almost see through). I find doing one or two at a time easiest, rather than trying to do them all at once.
Place the tortilla in a preheated (medium/low) cast iron pan (or whatever pan you have!) and watch until bubbles start to form. This doesn't take very long if your pan is hot enough. Flip and watch again. As soon as the bubbles rise remove from pan and place on a cloth on a plate or in a basket. Cover with the cloth until next tortilla is ready to put in.
Repeat ad infinitum until all the tortillas are done. Keep warm (always good advice)!
When ready to sit down, don't! You still have to chop up the chicken, grate some cheese (your choice of) and place the salsa in a bowl. Get some of your favourite hot sauces for sprinkling on your fajita and serve yourself. This is what ours looked like today!
Warning! It's possible to consume several beer during the preparation of this meal so make sure you have plenty! You could seriously shag this up if you drink several margaritas while doing this...
Tah Dah! Arrange on a plate with a scoop or two of the chilled guacamole with tostitos. Enjoy the smiles on the faces around your table. More music and drink rounds this out nicely. If you eat this properly you won't feel the need for desert...you'll be full!
