Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer to your question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I got an anything. You should email the people at Dukan Diet as they probably could assist you..
Thanks Toni! There's only room for improvement with this one...
Nicole, I agree. Took me 6 months to try it again. It is cooling on the stove now and I just had a taste. Think I may be liking it this way. The rotel and galic give it a nice kick and I cooked it so long the mystery meat is finally soft..
It took on the flavor of the beef and rotel which is a great thing. I think it is a thing like red beans, cook, cool and reheat and they taste better..
I love this because the little soy bits soak up all the flavour. My trick is to use V8, tomato juice, or Ajvar(veggie paste). Boil the liquid and add to fajitas, but let stand a good 30 minutes or so. If you're like me and enjoy more zing, add the herbs and spices while soaking..
During that time, saute onions, garlic, ginger, whatever veggies you have and make your salad...
Mokey, Rotel is a spicy, chopped tomato in a can we have in the states, so it is the same idea..
Mine were so good tonight, DH commandeered my dinner and I ended up eating his, the stinker. Now, I am buying some more..
Nicole, how did yours turn out?.
I add pineapple by dole in the cup with the juice and baby carrots ,top with ff sour cream .yummy..
Thanks to this thread I made Indian Fajita tonight! Garlic, onion, ginger, eggplant, cauliflower, and garam masala - yum-o...
So many ways to make something inedible incredible!.
I'm one of the weirdos who seem to like them OK pretty much as is. I just added extra chili powder and a good shake of Extra Spicy Mrs. Dash..
I did cook them a little bit longer, with a a little bit more water than called for, to let them soften up a bit more...
I am scared to try them. LOL! But I am going to have to bite the bullet and go for it..
Thanks for the ideas on spicing them up..
They can't be any worse than the split pea soup..LOL..
I love the the fajita's when I use CG's mexican pot pie recipe. I order them just for this recipe..
Like madp said, I just get them for the mexican pot pie....yummmmmo and oh so filling! Thank goodness for Christina! Here's a link to her recipe....
Toni, I haven't tried it yet. My family ended up having pizza last night so I did the same. I have to say I'm not in a hurry to try it though. Still nervous about it. Thanks for the suggestions..
I may end up trying it with Christina Gray's recipe. It just seems like there is more in it than what I should be having?.
Thanks everyone for the help!..
You need to find the recipe Christina Gray posted for Mexican Pot Pie using the fajita. I used my first package of fajitas last night using Christina's recipe and it was DELICIOUS!! I only got 1 package of fajitas in my first order (I did a custom order to get started), but with my second order coming in next week, I've already ordered a lot of them because of how delicious and FILLING the recipe was. I am not the greatest with links or I would have put it in here for you! Here's the full posting from Christina Gray:.
Mexican Pot Pie.
1 Dukan Diet Vegetable Fajita.
8oz chicken broth or water.
2/3 c frozen mixed vegetables.
1/4 c country gravy (I used the one I use for the breakfast bowl).
1 Laughing Cow light wedge.
Dash of pepper, poultry seasoning and onion powder.
2 1/2 tbsp biscuit mix.
Pinch of poultry seasoning.
Dash baking soda.
1 tbsp buttermilk.
Preheat oven or toaster oven to 400 degrees. In a small pot on the stove, mix together the fajita mix and the chicken broth or water. Cook over medium heat until it starts to thicken. Add in the veggies, country gravy, cheese and seasonings and contine to cook for another 10-15 minutes to allow the flavors to blend and the veggies to cook. Pour into a single serve cassarole dish as shown in photo 1. In a small bowl, mix together the topping ingredients just until blended.
You can try to spread it around if you like, but it's not easy. Next time I would just leave it without trying to spread it. Spray it with a few sprays of butter spray and bake until the top is golden, but not as dark as mine!! I got to typing an email and it over cooked!! LOL!! Counts as entree + veggie serving. If you have an extra protein, feel free to add in some chicken or ground beef crumbles..
NOTE: This is SUPER filling, so only eat it on a really hungry night!! I could only finish half of it!!.
Let me address the "what does this count as" before it even comes up. This meal calls for a tortilla to be added. I didn't not add the tortilla, but made the topper and few add in's instead. The LCL cheese wedge is an extra, but you could save half a protein from snack if you'd like. I looked at it this way....this meal is so filling that I didn't even have room for a salad. The few extra calories in the cheese would have been there anyway in the way of dressing on my salad...
