One pan Chicken Fajitas

Here is how I make fajitas.  It is pretty simple and fairly healthy (I think).

1 large chicken breast
1 sweet pepper (any colour)
1 small onion
4-5 white mushrooms
1 can black beans
1/2 cup salsa
4 tbsp chili powder
3-4 cloves fresh garlic
2 tbsp cooking oil
2 cups diced lettuce
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
6-8 12″ soft tortillas
salsa
sour ceram

Turn your oven onto about 200F.  Throw your tortillas onto a baking sheet and let them get warm in the oven.

Cut your chicken into long strips and throw into a large frying pan (I use my wok) with the oil over medium high heat.  Cook until chicken is just about brown.  Add the garlic, chili powder and 1/2 cup of salsa to the chicken and let the chicken finish cooking.  Please note always make sure your chicken is fully cooked before adding your veggies.  Another helpful and healthy tip is that if your chicken starts to stick to the pan, don’t add more oil, instead add a little water to the pan, the chicken should un-stick quickly.

While the chicken is cooking, dice the pepper, onion and mushrooms.  Cut the veggies into long strips to match the chicken.  Once the chicken is cooked, throw in the veggies.  Once the veggies start to soften, drain and add the black beans.  Once the beans are warm, remove the fajita fill from the stove.

Remove the warm tortillas and you are ready to eat.  The nice thing about fajitas is that everyone builds their own.  Just have them spoon some fill onto a tortilla, throw on some cheese, salsa, lettuce and sour cream, and then roll.  They are a one pan meal that combines your meat, veg and side all into one.  If you want to add something else you can’t go wrong with chips and fresh cut salsa or maybe some mexi-rice.

No tigers in these woods

A lot has happened since we last took a look at our heroes journey. Here is our story so far…

The heroes managed to find a liberary in the secret monestary. Unfortunately one of the most important books has been magically encrypted. Not even the best cleric in fellcrest can unlock its secrets. The old vicar did know where the heroes may be able to divine the knowledge contained in this dark tome. He advices the heroes to travel to the an Eladrin city in the Feywild. The city has a huge university and if there is a way to get the answers from the book, it can be found there. He heroes must find a fey-gate to get into the elf realm and the one know locally is found in an ancient forested valley to the northeast.

The party made their way to the woods and after dispatching some hags, discovered a cave with what appears to be a portal in it. They determined they had to find magical fires to light fire pots attached to the wall. After collecting a red and a yellow flame the part expected to find themselves in the feywild by only ended up in another part of the valley. After almost being forced to dance to death by some crazed Korrad, the party continues their quest.
