Cast Iron Chicken Fajita Tostadas

My husband was roommates with a Mexican-American and a Columbian-American while stationed in Germany. All three of these guys enjoyed cooking and my husband learned quite a bit about hispanic cuisine. After we were married and stationed in El Paso, Texas, I took my culinary skills to a new level when I learned to cook authentic Mexican cuisine from scratch.

Anyway, back to my husband. He’s not a chef extraordinaire by any stretch of the imagination. Although he cooks some really good meals really well, he isn’t well-rounded in the kitchen. He also had never used a cast iron skillet prior to our marriage. Actually, he still hasn’t used a cast iron skillet other than while camping. Who knows, maybe he’ll begin using some of my recipes, such as this one, to amaze his camping buddies. However, he also knows that cast iron makes some of the best tasting dishes anyone could ask for.

I grew up learning to cook in the Cast Iron. To me, it was just the way life was and what we had on hand to use in the kitchen. Then as I grew up and left home, I realized that it was more than just a pan! Cast iron is one of the best ways to cook!  Did you grow up with cast iron, too? The flavors and ease to use is just unbeatable. This recipe puts a new spin on fajitas, uses cast iron and adds some corn tortillas!
