Beef and Chorizo Fajitas with Mashed Avocado

The Creative Canvass Lazy Sunday Eatery #9 Beef and Chorizo Fajitas with Smashed Avocado

Cooking and eating are two of my biggest loves. So no matter what, I always make time to incorporate them into my life.

This monthly Lazy Sunday Eatery series is the perfect way for me to do this. It’s a series dedicated to cooking and eating finger food, the perfect food for a lazy Sunday.

If you’d like to view past and future Lazy Sunday Eatery series recipes then please visit my finger food recipes Pinterest page.

On the menu for this month’s Lazy Sunday Eatery series is Beef and Chorizo Fajitas with Mashed Avocado.

I love Mexican, so much so that it’s already featured in this series in the form of Chicken Tostadas and Cheddar Quesadillas. In fact, the Chicken Tostadas were the first recipe to ever feature in this series.

To view the recipe for these Fajitas please keep reading, or alternatively you can view it online at Taste.

Prep 10 minutes
Cooking 10 minutes
Serves 4

1 tbs of olive oil
500g of thinly sliced beef rump steak
2 thinly sliced chorizos
1 thinly sliced red capsicum
1 thinly sliced yellow capsicum
2 tsp of smoked paprika
2 tsp of dried oregano
1 avocado stone removed peeled
1 tbs of lime juice
1/4 cup of coriander
12 mini tortillas
Coriander leaves, extra to serve
Sour cream to serve
Lime wedges to serve

Step 1
Heat half of the olive oil in a large frying pan over high heat. Add half of the beef. Stirfry for 2 minutes or until brown. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with the remaining beef.

Step 2
Add the chorizo and cook stirring for 2 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer to a plate.

Step 3
Heat the remaining olive oil in the pan. Add the combined capsicum. Cook stirring for 3 minutes or until just tender. Add the smoked paprika and oregano. Cook stirring for 1 minute or until fragrant. Return the beef and chorizo to the pan and toss to combine.

Step 4
Place the avocado and lime juice in a bowl and mash until almost smooth. Stir in the chopped coriander. Heat the tortillas following packet directions.

Step 5
Serve the beef mixture with the tortillas, avocado mixture, extra coriander, sour cream and lime wedges.

What’s my verdict?
The best part of these Fajitas is the chorizo. I love chorizo! These Fajitas are also messy, juicy and meaty – the best combination you can have for any Lazy Sunday Eatery recipe.

A recommended change to the recipe
I would suggest adding some beans or rice to this recipe as I felt like it was missing something.
