Possibly my most favorite recipe of those I've made to use CSA produce. Certainly my favorite cabbage recipe. I made it twice within a week. Original recipe source: Epicurious. From the CSA: cabbage.
Chicken Fajitas with Crunchy Lime Cabbage and Avocado
6 Tbsp olive oil
8 garlic cloves, minced
2 Tbsp chili powder
2 chicken breasts, cut into 1/3" thick pieces
2 large red bell peppers, seeded and cut into strips
1 large onion, sliced into long strips
3 Tbsp. olive oil
1/2 head of cabbage, cored and sliced into long strips
2 tsp. dried parsley (or fresh--use cilantro if you like it, which I don't)
Juice of 1 lime (about 3 Tbsp.)
zest of 1 lime
12 fajita-size flour tortillas*
1 avocado (could use yogurt or feta or Mexican cheese or a crema to fill the same purpose in the recipe, which is to add something creamy)
Whisk 6 Tbsp. olive oil, garlic, and chili powder in large bowl. Add chicken, bell pepper, and onion. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Let stand 1 hr. at room temp or chill up to 4 hrs. After marinating is done, saute chicken mixture until well cooked.
Chop cabbage. In large bowl, toss with parsley, lime juice, lime zest, and 3 Tbsp olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside to marinate a little in the fridge.
Meanwhile, cook tortillas. Rinse tortillas under cold running water before cooking in a non-stick or greased skillet. Set aside in a place they can keep warm. Meanwhile, halve, pit, and slice avocado.
Roll your own fajitas. The ratio should be a little bit of chicken mixture and a lot of cabbage, with some avocado as the topping.
* A note on tortillas: For this recipe, what you want are the small, hand-sized, authentic corn tortillas, like those you would find in a mercado or tacqueria. Most grocery stores will also have them. Now, these will crisp up and not be foldable if you try and cook them like "regular" tortillas, so follow the weird instructions above.
