Fajita bowl

Fajitas aren't quite caveman. Something about a tortilla, even if it's "whole wheat", just isn't properly caveman-esque. However, if you throw out the tortilla, and put everything else in a big bowl, you get a yummy, messy meal that's ready pretty quickly.

  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil (or other oil suitable for frying)
  • 1 onion, chopped into strips or slivers
  • 2 chicken breasts, chopped
  • 2 sweet peppers (green, yellow, orange, red, whatever colour you like), chopped into strips
  • 1 cup tomato-based salsa (yes, you can use store-bought, just check for added "stuff" like sugar)
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheese, some pickled jalapenos, or whatever you like on your fajitas


  1. Fry the onions in oil until they're translucent.
  2. Add the chicken, and fry until it's no longer an invitation to food poisoning.
  3. Add the peppers, and fry until they're nicely softening.
  4. Add the salsa, stir well, and simmer for a couple of minutes.
  5. Dish up, top with whatever you like (I like cheese and jalapenos), and dig in!
