One thing I always enjoy during the summer months is getting out and heading down the road in search of some Farmer’s Market finds.
Our city allows local farmers to set up booths within a block of our neighborhood so we can get there by foot and grab some yummy fruits, veggies and herbs when they’ve just been freshly picked.
Mmm… is there anything better than just ripened produce?
I also enjoy a good and loaded mexican fajita— the more fresh vegetables such as green bell pepper and onion, the better and what better way to season my sliced chicken than with my all-time favorite brand… Old El Paso®!
Old El Paso makes my tacos, enchiladas and quesadilla’s quite tasty as well. They use the freshest ingredients in their taco and fajita seasonings so your meats come out amazing every time. My family loves it in taco shells and tortillas, on tortilla shells, or even in the meat all by itself on a fork. hehee!
We recently received a package of Old El Paso favorites to check out along with a Farmer’s Market basket, avocado keeper, chopper and storage bowls to help make our mexican food night a success.
I used the Old El Paso fajita seasoning mix to “kick it up a notch” in my uncooked, sliced chicken breasts. You just simply add water to a skillet with your chicken, and cook until your chicken is no longer pink in the middle. Then sprinkle in the seasoning and stir until the mixture is thick (to your liking).
While the chicken is cooking it gives me time to slice up my bell peppers and onions. Now if you want your veggies to have the same great taste as the chicken just toss them in with the chicken so they can soak up the flavor — cook until the veggies are fork tender.
For additional toppings I put out a variety of shredded cheeses, lettuce, diced tomato, sour cream, and sliced black olives. Once the meat and veggies are done it’s time to eat. Grab an Old El Paso flour tortilla shell or a few and start building that fajita!
Hubby isn’t big on eating cooked veggies so I made him a batch of seasoned chicken using Old El Paso’s Taco Seasoning mix. It tastes just as great as the fajita seasoning and he really enjoys it. Of course it’s super yummy in ground beef as well.
To mix things up a bit I like to make some of Old El Paso’s Spanish Rice and add a big scoop to my soft tacos. Boy is that rice good!
