IMG_8507.jpg

 

In preparation for Cinco de Mayo our resident chef, Elizabeth Whitt, was inspired to create a Chicken Fajita recipe with homemade salsa that features our Pasolivo Spicy Trio (Lime Olive Oil, Sriracha Salt, and Smokey Spice Blend). This recipe is the perfect way to spice up your Cinco de Mayo celebration or any time you feel like bringing some Southwestern flair to your table.

Chicken Fajitas

Level: Easy

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Yield: 4-6 servings

 

Ingredients

2 bell peppers, sliced thinly

1/2 onion, sliced thinly

1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, sliced into thin bite size strips

1 teaspoon Pasolivo Sriracha Sea Salt

1 tablespoons Pasolivo Smoky Spice Blend

¼ cup Pasolivo Lime Oil, divided

12 flour or corn tortillas, warmed over flame or in microwave

½ bunch cilantro, chopped (optional)

Sour cream for garnish, optional

Directions

Heat a large heavy bottom sauté pan over high heat.  When hot, add sliced bell pepper, onion and 2 tablespoons Pasolivo Lime Oil.  Let sit in pan without stirring until vegetables start to brown, about 2 minutes.  When brown, move vegetable over to the side of your pan and season with about 1 teaspoon Pasolivo Sriracha Sea Salt.  Add 1 tablespoon Pasolivo Lime Oil and chicken slices.  Season chicken with 1 teaspoon Pasolivo Sriracha Sea Salt and cook without moving until they are browned or cooked about halfway.  Using a flat bottom spatula scrape chicken off the bottom of the pan if sticking and gently stir so chicken cooks on the other side.  Sprinkle both chicken and vegetables with 1 tablespoon Pasolivo Smoky Spice Blend. Cook for another 2 minutes until chicken is just done.  Turn off heat, toss together vegetables and chicken and add remaining 1 tablespoon Pasolivo Lime Oil or more to taste.  Taste for seasoning, adjust as necessary and sprinkle with cilantro if desired.  Serve with warm tortillas, sour cream and salsa

Salsa

1 avocado, diced (optional)

1/2 onion, minced

2 tomatoes, diced

2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped

1 teaspoon Pasolivo Sriracha Sea Salt

1 teaspoon Pasolivo Smoky Spice Blend

2 tablespoons Pasolivo Lime Oil

Directions

Gently fold ingredients together, taste for seasoning and correct if necessary.

Make-ahead method

Slice onions, peppers and chicken the day before and keep in the refrigerator until ready to eat.  Make salsa the day before and store in refrigerator until ready to serve.  Cook as directed when ready.

Make mom feel special with some tips from Pasolivo. We have listed a few of our favorites and hope they help you create some wonderful memories this Mother’s Day.

  1. Write down all the reasons you love her on a hand-written card.
  2. Make her a special Mother’s Day breakfast. Try our Frittata recipe and bring her breakfast in bed.
  3. Devote an entire day to mom by spending time with her and doing the things she loves (and throw in a lot of hugs throughout the day!)
  4. Have a photo shoot with mom. Get dressed up and take a few photos with her.
  5. Put her favorite things together. Does she love reading, cooking, running? Make a “Mom’s Favorite Things” basket or take a look at a few of our favorite picks for mom here.
  6. Make sure she knows you are thinking about her…even if you are not close enough to visit in person. Flowers, cards, and Pasolivo gift baskets are great ways to show her how much she is appreciated.
  7. Bring mom to Paso Robles for the day and come visit us at Pasolivo. Plus, if you spend $50 or more we have a free gift for Mom!

 

Happy Mother’s Day from Pasolivo!
