Food at Central High

Bonus fajita recipe

As students rush through the halls to get to their next class, one place that they all inevitably congregate is the school cafeteria. A place where friendships are made, gossip is shared, and, of course, food is devoured.

One student, Sarah, shared that her favorite meal is the chicken fajitas, saying, “They’re always so flavorful and filling. I could eat them every day!”

On the other hand, geometry teacher, Mrs Moyer, expressed her love for the vegetarian chili, stating, “It’s the perfect comfort food on a cold day. Plus, it’s a great option for those looking for a meat-free meal.”

One thing that everyone seemed to agree on was their love for the fresh fruit cups that are offered daily. The cafeteria staff takes pride in sourcing local produce, and it definitely shows in the quality of the fruit.

For those looking to recreate some of their favorite dishes at home, the cafeteria manager graciously shared the recipe for the popular chicken fajitas. “It’s a simple recipe that packs a punch of flavor,” she explained. The recipe came from a family friend who is a chef at a local restaurant.

Chicken Fajitas:
– 1 lb chicken breast, thinly sliced
– 1 red bell pepper, sliced
– 1 green bell pepper, sliced
– 1 onion, sliced
– 2 tbsp fajita seasoning
– 2 tbsp olive oil
– Tortillas, for serving

1. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.
2. Add chicken and sauté until cooked through.
3. Add peppers, onions, and fajita seasoning.
4. Cook until vegetables are tender.
5. Serve hot with tortillas.

Next time you find yourself in the school cafeteria, take a moment to appreciate the hard work that goes into preparing the meals. It’s not just about feeding hungry students, but providing nourishing and delicious food for the school community to enjoy.
