A Mexican fajita dinner - delicious low calorie food for the whole family
Here at Lo-Dough, we're yet to meet anybody who doesn't enjoy the joyously adaptable and lip-smacking feast that is the fajita dinner. There are a few things to chop and prepare in advance, but beyond that, it's easy, incredibly tasty and once again, thanks to Lo-Dough it's low in carbs and calories.
The recipe below is for chicken fajitas with tomato salsa, guacamole and a crumbling of Lancashire cheese (our Lancashire cheese is the closest equivalent to Mexican 'Queso Blanco' cheese, but grated cheddar would work just as well). Other adornments that can be tried are sour cream, pickled red onions, salad, jalepeno chillies, chopped raw chilli, lime wedges and so on - It's really just a case of what you fancy.
For perfect spicing, we recommend using Spicentice's Fajita kit - a perfectly balanced blend of herbs and spices that give a great authentic flavour.
