#shortcuteggsperts - Omelette Fajitas

With Summer almost upon us *stares out of window at the rain*, it's time to be thinking about picnics and outdoor eating.  I have been challenged again to come up with a recipe using eggs for the latest #shortcuteggsperts challenge, this time for something speedy that can be taken on a picnic, cooked on a barbecue, or just eaten out in the garden.

Since eating the paleo way I have struggled to find portable meals. If we have a picnic I tend to take a salad in a box, until I figured that a thin omelette could be used in a similar way as a wrap.

Omelette Fajitas

These omelette wraps can be used to hold salad, but here I have used them to make fajitas, which can be eaten hot or cold.

Omelette Fajitas - serves 1

2 Eggs, beaten
Olive oil
1 chicken breast, sliced
1/3 Green pepper, sliced
1/3 Red Pepper, sliced
half a red onion, sliced
fresh chilli slices (to taste)*
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
half an Avocado, sliced
  • Heat a non stick pan and add the beaten egg
  • Fry over a medium heat until almost set on top, then flip over briefly to cook the other side 
  • Set the omelette aside whilst the rest is cooked
  • Heat a little olive oil and add the chicken
  • Fry until browned and cooked through
  • Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside
  • Add a little more oil to the pan and add the peppers, chilli and paprika
  • Fry until softened, and then add the chicken back into the pan
  • Lay the chicken and vegetables across the middle of the omelette
  • Place the avocado slices on top, and then roll up
  • Serve with chilli sauce and/or sour cream

*TIP : store your fresh chillies in a plastic container in the freezer and slice off the amount needed, this will prolong the life of the chillies
