Saturday Night Fajitas

On a Saturday night, why not try these quick and filling fajitas instead of your usual takeaway. They're great for sharing and take so little time and effort.

Start by turing the oven on to a medium heat (you will just need the oven warm to heat the tortilla wraps).
Slice two chicken breasts (to serve two people). Heat 1tbsp vegetable oil in a frying pan or wok, and fry the chicken, stirring frequently, for about 5 minutes until opaque.
Wrap your tortillas in foil and put in the oven to warm up.
Add one sliced onion and some sliced peppers. I actually use the bags of frozen mixed peppers, as they save prep time and cost less than the price of one fresh pepper! Ususally I favour fresh but in this case it just isn't worth it. Also at this stage you need to sprinkle in 2 tsp paprika, 1 tsp cayenne pepper and 1/2 tsp chilli powder. We like spice but are quite wimpish, so you can always add more if you prefer it hot.
Stir everything together and cook for 2 minutes more, so the vegetables still retain a crunch.
Meanwhile, prepare your other fillings so that you can build the fajitas as you go along. We have salad, grated cheese, and salsa. I usually make a fresh guacomole but my avocadoes weren't ripe! I'll have to give you that recipe another time..
Gather around, grab a couple of cold beers and tuck in!

So easy even Tim can do it!

I like to serve them on my coffee table, as we can sit around on floor cushions and share in front of some crappy Saturday night telly -in this case, Harry Potter!
