I knew Monday, that this would be a lazy cooking week. One of the best things about stocking up at Trader Joe’s is how easy and guilt free it is to cheat a little!
I bought some beef-less and chicken-less strips. Last time I used the chicken-less, I was disappointed in the spices, but I was cooking a delicate Chinese dish. I wanted to go ahead and try some southwestern food with them this time. And they fit perfectly just like I had hoped.
Cheater Chicken Fajitas– makes 4 tacos
- 1/2 pack of chicken-less strips
- 1/2 onion, in strips
- 1 red pepper, in strips
- whole wheat tortillas
- fixins: sour cream (or tofu substitute), lettuce, salsa, etc.
Heat up a non-stick pan and add the onion. Sauté until it is almost translucent, then added the pepper strips. A couple of minutes later add in the chicken-less.
Once the chicken-less is heated through, removed the pan from the heat, arrange 4 taco sized tortillas over the contents and cover with a lid to steam and warm the tortillas.
Remove the tortillas and place ‘clean’ side down. Now spoon in chicken-less mixture and top with your favorite salsa and taco extras.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. I also served up some refried black beans with red jalapeno from whole foods. Bur be careful, they were hotter than I expected!
