One of my biggest weaknesses when it comes to food is Mexican food. I love it. I love going to our local Mexican restaurant and savoring every bite. However, it doesn’t take a genius to know that it isn’t exactly on the “good list” for eating right or following a fat-loss lifestyle. So when I get the hankering for some Mexican, I have this one go-to dish.
I love this dish because it’s a one-dish meal (easier clean up!), it uses common ingredients (no specialty ingredients = no specialty crime against my bank account), and the leftovers keep your work lunches enjoyable (a vital necessity for me)!
I love a loaded fajita when it comes to toppings. And one of my favorite toppings is guacamole (I really think I could eat my body weight in that stuff – but that’s not a good idea, I tell myself). And I really don’t like buying the guacamole “flavor packs” at the store – because so frequently they contain so much salt, MSG, and all kinds of craziness. So I went on the hunt for a better option that I could make at home with a clearer conscience:
If you have leftover guacamole from dinner, here are a couple of tips that prevent that precious guacamole from going brown.
- Stir in the pits from the avocado
- Take some saran wrap and press onto the surface of the guacamole so that there is no contact between the air and the guacamole.
If you’re ever invited over for dinner and I make fajitas, you know exactly how lazy I was in making them!! Just please don’t expose my lazy cooking secret to the other guests.
