Fajita Chicken with Roasted Pepper, Homemade Refried Beans and Wedges

今日のディナーは、Hello Fresh の 「Fajita Chicken with Roasted Pepper, Homemade Refried Beans and Wedges (ファヒータ・チキン、ローストペッパー、ホームメイドのリフライドビーンズとポテトウエッジ)でした。

Today’s dinner was “Fajita Chicken with Roasted Pepper, Homemade Refried Beans and Wedges” from Hello Fresh.


I don’t know about Mexican food so much but I thought Fajita is something you have wrapping with tortilla?  This one had no tortilla.


Potato wedges were cooked the same as always – cut, coated with olive oil, salt and pepper and baked in the oven.  Chicken was opened in the middle of the thickness like a book to make it half the thickness and mixed with a mixture of Mexican spice, oil, salt and pepper and lime juice, seared outside in a frying pan then cooked through in the oven.  Refried beans were a tin of Cannellini beans cooked in the frying pan with fried shallot, garlic, Mexican spice, salt, pepper, a little water & chicken stock powder just for about 5 minutes then mashed.  After plating everything you drizzle on a little sauce made of lime juice, grated lime rind and olive oil.

リフライドビーンズは結構スパイスが効いていて美味しかったですし、チキンも美味しかったです。ただ、茶色と黄色で彩りが悪いので、ちょっとサラダを添えれば良かったね、と言いながら食べました。さっぱりしたサラダはお口直しにもなったと思います。Hello Fresh のものは美味しいですが、彩りがないなと思うことが多いのです。いつもあっという間に夕食を作る時間になってしまって、慌てて作り始めるので、食べながら気づくという繰り返しです(笑)。

Refried beans were quite spicy and tasty, chicken was also very good.  The only thing is that we feel the dish looked too brown and we should have added a small salad, which would have been a nice palette cleanser as well as added colours.  We find meals from Hello Fresh are very tasty but often not very pretty looking because it’s all brown.  We should look at the photo and think of adding something before we start cooking, but somehow the time to cook dinner creeps up on us and we rush to cook – we never seem to have enough time to think.
