F is for my fuss-free Fajitas

This week i had friends round, one of whom will not mind me describing her as a wee bit fussy. My fuss-free fajitas were definitely the answer: an easy-to-prepare, do-it-yourself meal with minimal effort after a day at work.

Ingredients
1 chicken breast per person
1 pepper (red, orange or yellow) per person
Cayenne pepper
Smoked paprika
Salt
Pepper
Lettuce (cos) – finely sliced
Cheddar – grated
Sour cream
For the guacamole:
3 Avocados
1 tomato
2 tbsp Double cream
1 small red chilli
1 tbsp Lime juice
1 small handful of fresh coriander
Fajitas - guacamole
Recipe
For the guacamole:
Add 2 avocados, the tomato, double cream, small red chilli (de-seeded), coriander and lime juice to the blender and mix until a paste. For the final avocado, chop into small pieces and mix into the guacamole
For the chicken:
  1. Cut the chicken breasts up into 1cm strips and fry on a medium heat, turning until all pink colours have vanished.
  2. Add the cayenne pepper, smoked paprika, salt and pepper and stir until all the chicken is coated
  3. Add the peppers and leave on low-medium heat for 5-10 minutes until everything is softened

Fajitas - chopped peppers
Lay out the tortillas in a warm oven for 3-4minutes, then serve everything in the centre of the table and let everyone help themselves.
