My favorite dish to order when going to the Mexican restaurant, La Cocina, is the Fajitas Texanas. Basically, it’s a sautéed goodness of beef, chicken, and shrimp with onions and green peppers. Then you get a side plate of shredded lettuce, Spanish rice, refried beans, sour cream and guacamole (optional). Even though I ordered this dish on Valentine’s Day lunch, I decided to create my own version tonight. Sans the green peppers, rice, and lettuce. Plus I served the avocado as is instead of guacamole.



1 piece of steak, sliced in strips

2 boneless chicken breasts, sliced in strips

1 medium onion, sliced

2 tomatoes, sliced

juice of 1 wedge of lime

2 cloves of garlic, chopped finely

1 packet of taco seasoning mix

3 tbsp of olive oil

1 can of refried beans (warm it up in a pot)

large flour tortilla (depends how many your family will eat)

sour cream

shredded cheddar cheese

2 avocados


Heat up the oil, then sauté the garlic. Add the strips of chicken breast. Cook for 5 minutes or so. Then add the beef strips. Cook for another 5 minutes.


Stir in the taco seasoning, lime juice, then add the onions and tomatoes. Stir, cover the pan and let everything cook until onions and tomatoes are cooked which shouldn’t take long.



Prepare your side items. It looks like some little girl tried to get some cheese :) . BTW, dump the refried beans on a pot and warm it for 2-3 minutes. Make sure to stir so you don’t burn it. Or use the microwave, it’s up to you :) .



Place the flour tortillas on a plate and warm them up in the microwave for a minute or so. Layer one flour tortilla with the meat-onions-tomatoes mixture, refried beans, avocado, sour cream and cheese.



Fold the sides, secure the bottom with another fold and enjoy! I only cut it in half so I could show you what it looks like inside. There you go, Fajitas Texanas ala Feistycook. Add shrimp and green peppers too if you want.
