Every Friday night, X returns home for the weekend. By the time, he's back it's time for the Girl to go to bed. So it's kind of our date night & I'll try to prepare something special. I've even decided to name this our Friday Night Dinners (which will be known henceforth simply as FND).
This week it was inspired by a pineapple salsa. When Sri of Feedmyworld shared this on a forum, I immediately wanted to try it. Besides, it has been a while since I made Mexican. After I tried it for the first time, I knew I wanted to do this again for FND.
I cooked the beef as per Sri's recipe but fried the peppers & onions with Mexican seasoning. Along with the pineapple salsa, I also prepared a tomato salsa. So this time round, I didn't do a guacamole which I would normally have done.
The pineapple salsa was a big hit with the chef (thanks again Sri), not that I had any doubt. He really liked the refreshing taste & preferred it over the tomato salsa. I'm sure I'll be making this again & again. Plus it's just fun - lay out the beef, peppers, pineapple salsa, cheese separately, let each person wrap their own beef fajita. Sit back & watch them lick their fingers after. Ole !
