Imagine being at your favorite Mexican restaurant. You know, back before you had any dietary restrictions. Imagine the smell and sizzling sound that had you hoping the waiter was heading in your direction and your glorious Mexican feast was about to begin. Imagine the signature smokey taste of good fajita meat, done just right. Well, good fajita meat isn’t as refined a skill as I had always imagined it might be! In fact, the more I cook, the more I’ve come to believe that the best food is always the simplest food. Not just because it’s easier to prepare, but because when you’re using high-quality, nutritious ingredients, they tend to speak for themselves. Instead of bell peppers, this recipe uses summer squash with lime juice and a sprinkling of autoimmune protocol-friendly seasonings for zest. With lettuce wraps instead of tortillas and juicy, full-flavored mango on top, these Beef Fajitas with Mango Salsa have become one of A Clean Plate’s all-time most-popular recipes. Considering how easy they are to make and how satisfying their flavor is, it’s no wonder why!
Struggling to Start the Autoimmune Protocol?
