  • Crispy avocado wedges are a new, healthy and interesting option for putting in a fajita wrap! Switch up chicken or beef for these baked crispy avocado wedges, which you can serve up with green leaves, salsa and condiments. Add a little more hot sauce at the end if you like it hot, or leave it out if you prefer to keep things mild. This is a whole new take on fajitas, and you’re going to love it.

    • Layer up 12 mini tortilla wraps with iceberg lettuce, the sweetcorn mix and 2 pieces of avocado. Add some chipotle tomato salsa and soured cream.
