Discovery Mexican Fajita Season & Sauce use to be Discovery Mexican Fajita 2 step sauce, it's still the same except the label and name has changed, plus there are also other flavours in the range. It's a tomato, onion and pepper fajita sauce with fajita seasoning. It a 370g jar and costs around £1.64 - £1.67. Tesco has a special offer of any 2 FOR £3.00 at the moment.
I usually just normally just get the Old El Paso Fajita Dinner Kit and to be honest I prefer it and don't like to change it for another product especially if I'm extremely happy with the product. My brother wanted to try this one out so I reluctantly agreed. Basically it's a jar containing sauce with a separate container on top for the normal fajita seasoning. It's got the discovery tape over the top sealing the container to the jar and a red label around the jar with a picture of onion, peppers and tomatoes.
Pull the seasoning container off the top of the jar, then pull pack the silver foil to open it and empty into a bowl, add 2 tablespoons of oil, make up the marinade and coat the small chicken pieces.
Heat a pan up and when hot place the chicken in the pan, cook the chicken until cooked.
Once chicken is cooked add the sauce to the pan and cook for a further one minute.
Then make up the fajitas as normal.
People have different tastes and my brother is just plain weird, he doesn't like too much vinegar and almost avoids things with vinegar in, yet he like sweet pickled onions and even likes this. I don't usually mind vinegar but this was just disgusting. I personally do not like this at all, I did find it very vinegary it tasted like I accidently let the chicken pieces drop into a big bowl of salsa dip, the chicken fully absorbed the salsa sauce. I found it over powering considering I like to put just a bit of salsa in my fajita wraps. Instructions didn't indicated adding anything like onions, peppers etc, but I think even if I did I still would not of like this at all. I did put some salad in my wraps but nothing could save me from those overpowering chicken pieces tasting vinegary so I gave up on it, plus I was worried it would have a bad effect on my stomach. Yes I had a tummy ache and had to have Milk of Magnesia during the middle of the night, it just didn't agree with me.

Overall I hate this product and will stick to the Old El Paso Fajita Dinner Kit in future. My brother still buys this from time to time and uses it cold in wraps for lunchtimes, I just don't know how he eats it. How annoying, I wanted to rate it no stars but dooyoo wont let me so its lucky enough to get one star.
