Slice down middle of onion so you get 2 halves. Our top tip is to then place one half back face down to minimise onion tears!
Peel back the brown skin from the first half, replace back face down on the chopping board and repeat for the other half. Then just cut off the end of each half to leave you with the white area of your onion ready to dice.
Hold the end of your onion carefully and begin to make cuts through, remembering to cut away from yourself. The more cuts you make the smaller the dice of your onion, so wider cuts, will give you bigger diced chunks eventually. Be careful not to cut completely through, you need to keep the back end in tact where you are holding the onion.
You then cut horizontally across the onion, again the more cuts you make the finer your dice will be.
Make a claw with your fingers and place them down on the onion, making sure your finger nails are well away from the blade. It is your knuckles which are in contact with the knife not fingers. Then with a soaring motion cut through your onion.
Continue to cut through all the onion, not forgetting your other half, until it is all beautifully diced and ready to cook with.
Take your pineapple and place on a chopping board. Next, you need to carefully cut the top off, removing the leaves and then the bottom to reveal the yellow flesh of the fruit.
Stand your pineapple upright, and with your knife, carefully slice down each side to remove the skin. Keep going until you have removed all of the skin.
Next, keeping your pineapple upright, you need to cut in half. Then take one of the halves, and cut in half again. Repeat with the other half, so you have 4 quarters.
Take one quarter at a time, and carefully slice down the middle to remove the core.
Then place flat on your chopping board, and cut into strips – approximately 4.
Rotate your pineapple quarter, and start to slice across the strips you have just cut, so as to form little chunks. Repeat until your first quarter is now fully diced.
Repeat with your remaining quarters, until your pineapple is fully diced.
Place all your fajita filling within the centre of your warmed, soft flour tortilla – we love to fill ours with chicken coated in our Smoky BBQ Fajita Seasoning Mix and crunchy peppers and onions. Then gently fold over one side of your tortilla into the middle.
Fold over the other side of the tortilla into the middle.
Close the 2 sides together and there you have it, your delicious fajita, ready to enjoy with family and friends!
