1. It’s All in the Ingredients
Preparing the best batch of chicken fajitas you’ve ever eaten, requires fresh, organic ingredients. Visit your local farmers market and get to know your butcher. Farmers markets supply fresh, organic produce that’s free from pesticides and other toxic materials used in commercial farming. Organic veggies may cost a little bit more, but they are worth the extra money.
The world eats plenty of chicken, and it’s the second most popular meat on the market after beef. Unfortunately, commercial chicken farmers feed their birds growth hormone and antibiotics to speed up growth in the chickens and prevent outbreaks of disease. These chemicals find their way into the flesh of the birds, and eventually to your dinner plate.
Using fresh organic ingredients creates a full flavor profile while increasing the number of nutrients available in the meal. Develop a relationship with the people that supply your food and understand the origin of your food from farm to fork.
