Do you ever wonder why Facebook is posting some of the ads off to the right of your facebook page? Mine just had 3 ads about getting pregnant, adopting, and having babies. What the SH*T is that?! Are you kidding me? I’m 23, single, and eat coconut ice cream by myself on Friday nights, and you’re telling ME to make babies. You’re an asshole facebook advertising. Maybe you should be questioning your marketing team. They’re obviously failing. Miserably.

While I creeped on people via Facebook, I also watched the Food Network while I consumed my coconut ice cream. I am amazing at multitasking. Have you ever watched the show Chopped?! Holy sh*t it’s good. I mean REALLY good. These chefs are given a bunch of random ingredients and are asked to create an appetizer, entree and dessert. They come up with seriously the most creative dishes. A dude made ice cream out of root beer candies and garbanzo beans for gosh sakes. Wtf?! It’s super inspiring. So when I’m at a loss of what to make that week, I just watch Chopped. Am I anywhere near as creative as them? Hell no. But I do take chances. Often fail, but it’s the effort that counts, right? Wrong. I gotta blog about food that actually tastes good.

But in the meantime of stalking people on facebook, looking at other paleo blogs, AND watching Chopped, I also put together a meal for myself. The meal turned out great. Exactly how I wanted it to taste. BUT, while baking this creation, the oven door fell off. I don’t really even know how that happens. I pulled it open and the outside of the door literally just fell to the ground. So stupid. A woman put together our kitchen. The drawers are rolling out. The cupboards are crooked. My lord. Thanks for making us look bad woman.

Paleo Fajita Meatza

0.0 rating
TOTAL

INGREDIENTS :

  • 1.5 lbs grass fed beef
  • 1.5lbs ground pork
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, cut into strips
  • 1 green bell pepper, cut into strips
  • 1 yellow onion, 1/2 diced, 1/2 cut into strips
  • 1 (14 oz) can tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons chicken stock (or water)
  • 1 (7 oz) can green chiles
  • 1/2 can black olives
  • 7 teaspoons taco seasonings* (I know it's a lot, quick complaining)
  • salt and pepper, to taste

DIRECTIONS :

  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees then pull out a 9 x 13 glass dish to have ready for your meat.
  2. Grab a large mixing bowl, add your pork and beef, eggs, ½ diced onion, and 3 teaspoons of taco seasonings. Mix thoroughly.
  3. Now add your mixed meat to the glass dish and press down evenly throughout the dish. Bake for 15 minutes.
  4. While the meat is baking, first cook up your fajita veggies. Pull out a large skillet, add a bit of fat to it and add your sliced veggies in along with 1 teaspoon of taco seasonings. Mix around and cover to let some steam work it's magic.
  5. And while the veggies cook down, pull out a medium sized saucepan to make your sauce. Add your tomato paste, chicken stock, green chiles, and 3 teaspoons of taco seasonings. Then taste and add salt and pepper as needed. The chicken stock is used to thin it out so add more if you need to.
  6. Once your meat is cooked through, top the cooked meat with sauce and your fajita vegetables and throw some of the olives on top.
  7. Add to the oven with the broiler on. Do not let your oven door fall off.
  8. Cook for about 5-8 minutes or until the topping are cooked to perfection.
  9. Consume.

*If you don’t have taco seasonings or know what the hell goes into taco seasonings, exhibit A. I bought this at Sunflower Market on sale. It’s just easier. No added salt either if you are an anti salt boring human being. Kidding.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. HA! That's some funny shit. My Facebook ads yesterday were for plastic surgery and "muscle building" supplements. Which, of course, then prompted me to put down my pint of chocolate chip cookie dough coconut ice cream and really start questioning my effort lately on WOD's. Asshole's indeed.

  2. Damon,
    Don't EVER let facebook ads get to you and make you put down that coconut ice cream. I say f*ck them and prove to them that their advertising sucks. BTW, how is the cookie dough kind? Haven't tried that one. I ate peanut butter AND almond fudge this weekend…oops. OHHHH have you tried sprinkling salt on top of your ice cream. Do it. Just do it.

  3. Salt on top of my ice cream? Hmm, I'll have to give that one a go. The cookie dough was pretty good. That shouldn't be a huge surprise though. I have the same chocolate addiction issue you do. The first time I tried coconut ice cream a few weeks ago, I went with a Mango one. Really good! While we're discussing trying foods, I thought I'd throw something out at you. I was reading the post about you mixing honey and almond butter the other day. I do the same thing in the am, but then I dip a link of turkey sausage in it and gobble it up. Sounds weird initially, but boy is it good. Assuming you like turkey sausage for breakfast. It would probably work well with good ol fashion bacon too. Damn I'm hungry now!

  4. I LOVE it Damon!! I'm definitely going to have to try that asap!! I usually eat chicken apple sausage, I haven't tried turkey. That would be bomb though. You're a genius. I like you even more now

  5. Now this, is what dreams are made of. I have a mixture of ground elk/deer/beef chorizo (fucking weird I know) that's been in a ziplock back in my fridge for a week, basically a collection of leftover raw animal flesh that I was going to turn into a meatloaf. But I've been second guessing the meatloaf 1.)Because I've never made meatloaf before and it just doesn't seem like it would be THAT great, even tho I was going to bake it with bacon on top 🙂 & 2.) I live alone, am single, and don't know wtf I would do with a weeks worth of leftover meatloaf in my fridge with out forcing myself to eat it every day as to not waste anything and in turn resenting all things meatloaf by the end of my 7th helping. This recipe solved all my problems because I'll probably eat it all in one sitting. OLAY!

  6. Kaitlin,
    A) I don't know why the hell you are single.
    B) 7 helpings of meatloaf sounds fabulous
    C) Have you seen my bacon meatloaf recipe? You need to make it and make some sauce with it. Delicious.
    D) Have you seen George's recent meatloaf recipe? That sh*t looks epic.
    E) Too bad we don't live closer or we could make a crap ton of meatloaf for each other and be each others dates. Bummer.

  7. Juli,
    A) I attribute that mostly to luck and being a really fast sprinter.
    B) The thought of 7 helpings of meat in general makes my pants get tighter.
    C) Umm? I only saw NomNomPaleo's recipe, lurking your blog now…
    D) Yes, he has been texting me meatloaf advice for about a week because I am a scared little meatloaf virgin.
    E) If we lived closer the only dates we would get WOULD be each other, because with your almond butter addiction and my meat obsession, we would be a couple of reeeeeal fat asses. But we'd probably be pretty happy.

  8. I think your massive strength ripped the oven door off . . . . . 🙂 Few oven doors can take repeated use from someone of your physical prowess. 🙂 (joking AND serious!)
    Anyway – I’ve made 3 or 4 comments on your site tonight, not because I’m a stalker 🙂 (or am I? du-du-duuuuuuuuuuuh!!) but because I’ve been browsing for dinner inspiration tonight. You’re always my go-to girl in that arena – inevitably I know I will be inspired by SEVERAL things you’ve made, at that point it’s just up to finding one that I have all/most of the ingredients to!

  9. Your friday nights are starting to sound a lot like mine.. mmm coconut ice cream.. Well I freaking love watching chopped and its always on late at night! It makes me feel like I could do anything with a few random ingredients.. and then I remember I’m just a regular girl not a top notch chef.. woah reality check..
