There are about 4 City Chic dresses and all the gorgeous new active wear I want right now but the budget just isn’t allowing it! So in order to buy more clothes I’m cutting back on my other expenses. Food is one of my massive bills and I still want to eat delicious things, but I’m looking for cheaper ways to cook and still enjoy the food. This recipe for my beef fajita bowl only costs $2.45 per portion and it tastes just like the takeaway version I buy for $12. The recipe is for 4 portions so the leftovers get packed up and put into the fridge or freezer for future meals.
2 cups jasmine rice
1 cup canned pinto beans, drained and rinsed
2 tbsp fajita seasoning
1 punnet cherry tomatoes
1 cup cheese, grated
1 small bunch coriander, roughly chopped
1 tsp oil
Bring a large pot of water to the boil, add rice and simmer until cooked, drain and keep warm
Coat beef in fajita seasoning
Heat oil in a large saucepan and sauté beef until cooked to your liking
Allow the steak to rest for a few minutes and then slice
Cut the tomatoes into halves or quarters
Assemble your beef fajita bowl in layers starting with rice
Add the beef
Serve with your favourite chilli sauce, avocado or corn chips for something a little extra.
