YMC challenged ten members to get creative in the kitchen. Each person had to add their own unique twist to the recipe included on the back of the Club House Recipe Inspirations package. Here is the grand-prize winning recipe Kathryn Lavallee came up with.
I wanted to put a really fun twist on the classic fajita meal, but I loved the combination of ingredients that was in the Recipe Inspirations Garlic Lime Chicken Fajitas spice packets, so I didn’t want to change them. I decided to combine two of my family’s favourites by turning a Mexican meal into a pizza for double the kid-friendly fun! With the help of a pre-baked pizza crust, whipping up this pizza only added an extra ten minutes of cooking time to the original recipe.
My boys both loved this pizza! They tend to shy away from vegetables but they both love Mexican food, so as long as a meal has a Mexican twist, they will generally devour it. Turning a classic Mexican dish into another meal they love — pizza — was a fun twist that all of us enjoyed and watching my boys gobbling up healthy red and green peppers and lean chicken had me beaming!
