Salsa, Fajitas and more… oh my!
When it is sizzling hot outside I start thinking of sizzling fajitas, salsa and my favorite Tangerine Dream cocktail. So today I thought I’d share some of my favorite recipes that are perfect for summer sizzle.
Juice from 2 limes
8 T Olive Oil
2 T Worcestershire sauce
1 T Agave syrup
3 finely diced jalapenos
¼ c finely chopped red onion
1-2 drops Cumin oil
3 drops Cilantro Oil
3 drops Lime Oil
Salt & Pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients, add meat of choice and refrigerate 15 minutes to 1 hour. Personally, my favorite combination is a chicken, bacon and a little shrimp. I like to add bell peppers and mushrooms and many people add fresh tomatoes. When you are ready toss in a piping hot pan and cook until the protein is done. Right before I pull them, I toss some Monterey jack cheese which melts by the time people dish up. I usually use corn tortillas but any tortilla works fine. If you try corn remember they have to be cooked.
Vegetarian options work really well for this.
I serve with rice and beans, sour cream and salsa.
The salsa I love is my friend Sharyl’s salsa. Probably the best I’ve ever had. This recipe makes a huge amount. I served it at a class and I was floored at how much was gone at the end of the night.
1 bunch cilantro
8 roma tomatoes
1 large mango (optional)
1 small red onion
1 large can La Costena Jalapenos and carrots
2 large cans diced tomatoes
1 red bell pepper
1 yellow bell pepper
1 large can tomato sauce
1 small can tomato paste
1 clove garlic
Juice of 1 large lime
Black Pepper oil
Salt to taste
Dice all ingredients then add the diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, tomato paste, lime juice and salt.
Then add a toothpick swish of the black pepper oil and cilantro oil. Add 1 drop each of lemon and lime oil.
Combine all ingredients and increase black pepper and cilantro oil as needed. Remember they tend to build over time so go slow.
If tomatoes are acidic add a pinch of sugar or agave syrup.
Serve with tortilla chips.
This meal wouldn’t be complete without a yummy cocktail to go with it. My favorite is my Tangerine Dream.
