Fajitas are prefect for casual entertaining at home. It's always fun to get everyone involved, hands-on, to assemble and roll-up their own fajitas. This Mexican inspired meal is simple to prepare at home, just marinate the meat ahead of time, prepare the condiments, and when you are ready to serve, fire-up the barbecue and start cooking. Enjoy! 

Fajitas (Chicken or Beef)


2 lbs Skinless Chicken Breast or Rib-eye Steak, thinly slice the meat across the grain.
4 cloves of Garlic, finely chopped
2 Jalapeno Peppers, seeded and finely chopped
4 stalk Scallions, finely chopped
5 Tbsp Fresh Cilantro, finely chopped
2 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
1 1/2 tsp Ground Coriander
1 tsp Ground Aniseeds
1 1/2 tsp Ground Cumin
5 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 Limes, juiced
Sea Salt to taste

2 Medium White Onion, halved, sliced
1 Green Pepper, seeded and sliced
1 Red Pepper, seeded and sliced

Shredded Tex-Mex Cheese Blend
Fresh Salsa
Tortilla Wraps, warmed
Lime Wedges


Combine the chicken or beef, garlic, peppers, scallions, cilantro, chili flakes, ground coriander, ground aniseeds, ground cumin, olive oil, lime juice, and sea salt. Marinate the meat for at least 3 hours, but preferably overnight in the refrigerator.

Remove the meat from the refrigerator 30 minutes before grilling.

Prepare the grill for direct cooking over high heat. Place a large cast iron pan on the grill. Cook the chicken meat in batches until fully cooked or until the beef are cooked to your desired doneness.

When the meat is ready, add the onion and red and green bell peppers to the pan and sauté over medium-high heat until softened, about 4 minutes.

To serve, place the warmed tortillas, chicken, tortillas, cheese, guacamole, salsa, and lime wedges on the table and let diners assemble their own filled tortillas.

Serves 6 to 8

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
