Fajita Tacos & Broiled Potatoes

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Yesterday we decided to grill fajita meat outside and it was a great idea, instead of the usual rice to accompany the tacos I decided to cook some potatoes, so here's how to get them crunchy, browned and they don't stick to the pan. First line the bottom of the baking pan with aluminum foil, then cover the bottom with oil [i use vegetable oil] don't be scared to put in some more oil if needed, chop the potatoes up in similar sized pieces, drop them in the baking pan, sprinkle salt and roll the potatoes around the oil [use your hands to make it easier] bake at 400F for approximately 35-40minutes, move them around after they've been cooking for about 20mins, once they've cooked for 35-40mins turn on the broiler for 5mins, take the potatoes out, turn them over [you'll need patience to turn them one by one] broil for another 5mins, chop some carrots in it if desired and I also steamed some broccoli to go with it.

For the tacos simply use corn tortillas, chop cilantro or parsley to sprinkle on top, lettuce, tomatoes and lime juice.

And to go with it we found a gluten free beer-like drink called K Draft Cider which is made from apples, it has a slight bitter taste which makes it taste a little bit like beer, my husband even tried it and said it was quite good and it has a higher alcohol percentage than beer [it has 6.9% by Vol.]. I found it at a place called World Market here in Houston, I am sure it can be found elsewhere.

I dont know how to actually post the pictures here so here's the link to the gallery i uploaded them to.

Never would of thought of having potatoes with fajitas, but we used to have breakfast tacos at a little Mexican restaurant, and one of the options was potatoes with scrambled eggs and they were great.

Can't wait to try that 7% alcohol cider, we have World Markets here too. Thanks for the ideas!

p.s., Your links don't work for me.

Sounds like a great meal. My husband loves his tacos with potatoes. I would love to see the pictures, but I get the following error message when I click the links:

Thanks for the idea, and I'm sure the pictures look great too! :)

    What are your iron results?  Was ferritin (iron stores) taken?  Are you actually anemic (low hemoglobin)?  The results you posted are your Immunoglobulins.  Looks like your IgE is high, but then it is Spring and allergy season is supposed to be pretty bad this year (at least in the US).  What riggers your allergies (e.g. cats, horses, mold, etc.)? Have other autoimmune issues been ruled out that could cause tendinitis or vertigo?    
    The EMA test is the most expensive of the celiac blood tests because it is not machine run, but done by humans.  A lab mistake could have been made.  With negative genes, the rest of the panel and symptoms eliminated, chances are you do not have celiac disease, but you can always get retested in six months, if you have symptoms or think celiac disease could be an issue.   Making dietary changes can have adverse reactions to anyone.  Consuming too much of a good thing can easily make you sic
Hey there ! hope all is well for you.  I’ve been struggling with all sorts of tenidinitis and vertigo issues so I haven’t been on the computer much, but I would love any advice if possible. I have been on a very strict gluten free diet for 6 or 7 months. Still have low iron and just got results back. Would love your opinion. I prepare all food myself except once where I was likely glutened. I am seeing haematologist next week, but I was wondering what you think. Parasites have been eliminat
