Chicken Fajitas



This is a really easy and tasy recipe for lunch or dinner. The kids will love chopping up the vegetables and rolling up their tortilla wraps like little blankets. You can use fresh or frozen onions and peppers and if your kids are not too keen on spice, leave out the chilli powder or fajita spice mix and add sweet chilli sauce to the adult's dishes when serving up. These are great with Greek-style yoghurt and/or grated cheddar cheese. This recipe serves 4.
