Chicken Fajitas With Guacamole And Salsa

There’s nothing like fajitas for a relaxed meal. Once the elements are whipped up, everyone can serve themselves (anyone else accidentally add too much filling every time?!)

Plus it’s easy to adapt the recipe to personal tastes, or if you suddenly find that lots more people want to come for supper!



Serves: 3

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

For the filling:

  • 2 peppers (1 red and 1 yellow), deseeded and sliced

  • 1 onion, thinly sliced

  • 2 skinless chicken fillets, sliced into long strips
  • 1 pinch of ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. paprika

  • 1 lime

  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • Black pepper
For the salsa:
  • 12 cherry tomatoes, roughly chopped

  • 1⁄2 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 1 small bunch of fresh coriander, roughly chopped

  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil

  • Salt and black pepper
For the guacamole:
  • 2 ripe avocados

  • 8 cherry tomatoes, roughly chopped

  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp. fresh coriander

  • Juice of 1 lime
To serve:
  • 6 small flour tortillas

  • 75g Cheddar cheese, grated
  • 150ml natural yoghurt

Instructions

1. Combine all of the ingredients for the
filling in a resealable plastic bag and mix until thoroughly coated.

2. Combine all of the ingredients for the salsa in a small bowl.

3. Halve and stone the avocados, then chop the flesh. Add to a separate bowl, then mix in the rest of the ingredients for the guacamole.

4.  Heat an oiled pan to a medium-high heat and cook the fajita mixture, stirring, for 6-8 minutes until the chicken is golden and cooked through.
5. Warm the tortillas in a microwave or a warm oven until soft and pliable.
6. Serve the chicken fajita mix in the warm tortillas, with bowls of the Cheddar, yoghurt, guacamole and salsa. Fill the wraps to your liking and serve immediately.
