Nicole's Story

My adopted hometown has a lot of ethnic diversity -- including a large Latino segment. What this means is a really great variety of authentic Mexican restaurants. And I fell in love with fajitas. In my quest to find a make-at-home fajita recipe, I came across this one in a Reader's Digest (Hunts) recipe. Easy, makes a nice presentation, can work easily as a take-away recipe, it's nearly perfect. My only problem is that you don't get the crusty bits from searing them on a cast iron skillet. . .

oil
2 tsp
chili powder
2 tsp
ground cumin
1 tsp

1 lb

1 medium
green bell pepper, cut into thin strips

I didn't have a can of tomatoes so I subbed a fresh tomato from our garden. Added a little Pace picante hot sauce. Added coarse ground pepper and a bit more salt. It was great! I will definitely make this again.

I think, with the oil, you could probably leave them out. Are the seeds the problem? Or, if you just can't stand tomatoes, maybe you could try tomatillos instead (a kind if green tomato).

I made these on Thursday night and they were really good will be making them again. It is so easy to make since I am just learning to cook.
