The herby, chilli-laced homemade guacamole in these chicken fajitas make them really special – plus they’re so easy to make.

Ingredients

  • For the vegetables:
  • 2 medium onions, peeled and cut into thin wedges
  • 2 red peppers, de-seeded and sliced
  • 2tbsp olive oil
  • For the chicken:
  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 30g (1oz) sachet of fajita seasoning
  • For the guacamole:
  • 2 medium avocados, de-stoned and peeled
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1-2 green chillies, de-seeded and finely chopped
  • 2tbsp freshly chopped coriander
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • To serve:
  • 8 flour tortillas
  • Sour cream
  • Cheddar cheese, grated

Method

  • To prepare the vegetables: Place the onions and red peppers on a piece of thick foil and drizzle over the olive oil. Fold the edges of the foil up and seal to form a parcel. Place the parcel on the grill for about 15-20 mins, or until the vegetables have softened, turning it occasionally.

  • To prepare the chicken: Flatten the breasts out to about twice the original size. Dust the seasoning mix over all the surfaces of the chicken. Place the chicken on the grill for 7-8 mins each side, or until completely cooked through.

  • To make the guacamole: Chop the avocados and mash slightly, then stir in the lime juice, chopped chillies and coriander. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  • When the chicken is cooked, cut it into strips.

  • To heat the tortillas, place them on the grill for about 20-30 secs on each side. Place some vegetables in a row in the centre of the tortilla, add some strips of chicken on top, then add some guacamole, sour cream and a little grated cheese. Roll the tortilla up and eat immediately.
