So my son came home from his friend’s house and told me that his friend’s father made fahitas and he tried one. I said how did you make them? He explained that they had yellow rice, chicken pieces, red pepper, onion and cheese.
Well you know me, I had to make it. Not the same day but the next day. Do you know that yellow rice has tumeric in it. 1 tsp! Do you know that there are anti inflammatory benefits in eating tumeric? Here’s a great article about it https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/top-10-evidence-based-health-benefits-of-turmeric.
I hope you enjoy coming up with your own style of making a fahita. And if you really like it, please share how you made yours :).
1 chicken breast, cut into thin strips
1/2 c white rice
1/2 c brown rice
1 tsp tumeric
small red onion, sliced
1 tsp garlic
1 3/4 c chicken broth (I use Knorr)
Red Pepper cut in strips
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
3 tbsp Chopped cilantro
Yellow Rice: Drizzle extra virgin olive oil in a sauce pan on medium heat. Add garlic and brown. Add rice and tumeric, stirring until coated. Then add the chicken broth. Cover and let simmer for 20 min.
Fahita: Drizzle extra virgin olive oil in a frying pan. Add chicken and cook until golden brown. Then add red onion and red pepper slices and cook until just tender. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Assembly: When the rice has absorbed all the water, add the cilantro and stir. Add a layer of rice on top of the flour tortilla. Then add the chicken, peppers and onions. Finally top with cheese and Enjoy!
