Fajita Pot

Bobbie Weiner


This is a great meal for a large group. I freeze 3 to 4 cups of leftovers (if there are any) and later make a skillet cornbread. Dig out the center, fill with thawed filling, and top with Monterey jack cheese. Bake till cheese is bubbly and slice like pie top with green onions and sour cream.

This is a wonderfully easy dinner to prepare and have waiting for you when you get home from a long day. Don't let the habanero chili scare you. There is a kick but not overpowering. It has just the right amount of spice with all the flavors of a fajita in a stew-like form.  Top with a bit of shredded cheese and a dollop of sour cream for a tasty meal.
