Fajita Meatza

Do you ever wonder why Facebook is posting some of the ads off to the right of your facebook page? Mine just had 3 ads about getting pregnant, adopting, and having babies. What the SH*T is that?! Are you kidding me? I'm 23, single, and eat coconut ice cream by myself on Friday nights, and you're telling ME to make babies. You're an asshole facebook advertising. Maybe you should be questioning your marketing team. They're obviously failing. Miserably.

While I creeped on people via Facebook, I also watched the Food Network while I consumed my coconut ice cream. I am amazing at multitasking. Have you ever watched the show Chopped?! Holy sh*t it's good. I mean REALLY good. These chefs are given a bunch of random ingredients and are asked to create an appetizer, entree and dessert. They come up with seriously the most creative dishes. A dude made ice cream out of root beer candies and garbanzo beans for gosh sakes. Wtf?! It's super inspiring. So when I'm at a loss of what to make that week, I just watch Chopped. Am I anywhere near as creative as them? Hell no. But I do take chances. Often fail, but it's the effort that counts, right? Wrong. I gotta blog about food that actually tastes good.

But in the meantime of stalking people on facebook, looking at other paleo blogs, AND watching Chopped, I also put together a meal for myself. The meal turned out great. Exactly how I wanted it to taste. BUT, while baking this creation, the oven door fell off. I don't really even know how that happens. I pulled it open and the outside of the door literally just fell to the ground. So stupid. A woman put together our kitchen. The drawers are rolling out. The cupboards are crooked. My lord. Thanks for making us look bad woman.

What you need:
  • 1.5 lbs grass fed beef
  • .5lbs ground pork 
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 yellow pepper, cut into strips
  • 1 green pepper, cut into strips
  • 1 yellow onion, 1/2 diced, 1/2 cut into strips
  • 1 14 oz can tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons chicken stock (or water)
  • 1 7 oz can green chiles
  • 1/2 can black olives
  • 7 teaspoons taco seasonings* (I know it's a lot, quick complaining)
  • salt and pepper, to taste
What you do:
  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees then pull out a 9 x 13 glass dish to have ready for your meat.
  2. Grab a large mixing bowl, add your pork and beef, eggs, 1/2 diced onion, and 3 teaspoons of taco seasonings. Mix thoroughly.
  3. Now add your mixed meat to the glass dish and press down evenly throughout the dish. Bake for 15 minutes.
  4. While the meat is baking, first cook up your fajita veggies. Pull out a large skillet, add a bit of fat to it and add your sliced veggies in along with 1 teaspoon of taco seasonings. Mix around and cover to let some steam work it's magic. 
  5. And while the veggies cook down, pull out a medium sized saucepan to make your sauce. Add your tomato paste, chicken stock, green chiles, and 3 teaspoons of taco seasonings. Then taste and add salt and pepper as needed. The chicken stock is used to thin it out so add more if you need to.
  6. Once your meat is cooked through, top the cooked meat with sauce and your fajita vegetables and throw some of the olives on top.
  7. Add to the oven with the broiler on. Do not let your oven door fall off.
  8. Cook for about 5-8 minutes or until the topping are cooked to perfection.
  9. Consume.

*If you don't have taco seasonings or know what the hell goes into taco seasonings, exhibit A. I bought this at Sunflower Market on sale. It's just easier. No added salt either if you are an anti salt boring human being. Kidding.
