Fine dining on a budget

Contains AD / GIFTED products from Capsicana

When Capsicana gifted me* THE ULTIMATE FAJITA KIT, I knew I needed to do a post on it. Don’t get me wrong, over here on my blog I do mainly discuss all things baking. However! when I received this kit, not only did it amaze my taste buds, but I had a fab idea.. this kit is essentially fine dining on a budget. It would be super convenient for so many people so.. here we are now with a fab idea for a post.

So let’s get onto the review..

They sent me the Mexican Chilli & Honey Ultimate Fajita Kit, and it really does taste as amazing as it sounds. I was excited to try this because I thought the combination of flavours sounded really nice. It says that it serves 2, but I definitely think it could serve 3/4 depending on how much of your own ingredients you add. You do get salsa inside, which definitely only caters to 2 people.


The packaging is cardboard which means that it can be easily recycled. YAY!

STEP 1: Prep your ingredients that you want to add to the fajita mix. I used onions, peppers and tomatoes.

The preparation for this was SO BEYOND EASY and really didn’t take any time at all – this may change depending on what ingredients you want to add to the mix. This is the perfect kit for you and a partner to do or even for you to make it with your kids (depending on how spicy it is and if they can handle it). The instructions that come on the box are very easy to follow.

STEP 2: Add the chicken and your other add on ingredients into a pan (we used quorn mince as my mum is a vegetarian)

“If you are a student and understand the struggle of not having any money, then getting a kit like this is perfect as it is super affordable and is literally fine dining.”


The cook time for this was probably around 7 minutes. All of the ingredients cooked really quickly which I find so convenient and know that this is going to make alot of people happy to know. One thing I hate is when I know something is going to take a long time to cook, for example.. sweet potato. I hate waiting for sweet potato to cook as it takes so long. This meal is literally perfect for anyone who is impatient (LIKE ME) or maybe doesn’t really have time to cook. I love that you can make this meal your own by adding any type of ingredients that you want.

STEP 3: Add the fajita mix to the pan and combine all of the ingredients together.

STEP 4 ( YOU CAN TOTALLY MISS THIS) put all ingredients in separate bowls then lay it out on a table so it almost looks like a spread.

STEP 5: start putting together your fajita and get eating!


OMG this fajita meal kit, tasted incredible! best fajitas I have had in such a long time. The taste is definitely different to any of the normal kits that I have tried, it is much more rich in flavour and definitely does have a kick to it. I loved the flavour of the actual kit, you can definitely taste the honey in it which adds a sweet tone to it. The salsa that came in the kit was a little too spicy for me, I hate spicy food LOL! I just feel like you can’t enjoy food when it is spicy. But, if you are a spicy food lover than the salsa will be right up your street. The fajita mixture that you add to all of your ingredients is very tasty! even writing this now literally makes me so hungry. All of the ingredients together created such an amazing meal for me, my brother and my mum – we all sat down to eat this together and really couldn’t fault the kit at all.

Students –

If you are a student and understand the struggle of not having any money, then getting a kit like this is perfect as it is super affordable and is literally fine dining. A meal like this is so tasty that it will make you feel like you are dining at a restaurant.

People on the go / people who work evenings –

This is perfect if you are in a rush and need a meal done within 10 minutes. If you work in the evenings, you can even cook this and take it to work with you in a little tub.

Mums / dads with little ones-

If you have a new born baby or a little 2 year old running around, these meals are so convenient for you as they are so easy to cook and you could definitely put some in a tub and have it the next day.

People learning to cook –

If you are someone who has just moved out of your house and don’t have a clue when it comes to cooking meals, this sort of thing is perfect to get you started. It is cooking, but with a little bit of help.

People who have a friend coming over for dinner –

If you have your friend coming over and don’t want to sit there the whole night trying to whip up a fab meal, these are so quick and will go down such a treat.

Once again, so so convenient and I love that.

These kits cost around £3.60 and you can get them from Sainsburys and Waitrose.

    I bloody love fajitas! I’m a huge fan of meals that are simple to make but are SO tasty and fajitas definitely fit that bill.
    I have used some old el paso kits, the bbq one is my favourite but I haven’t had it in ages! I’d love to try a Capsicana set though, they sound absolutely lovely!
