4 chicken breasts, cut into chunks
olive oil , for frying
For the marinade
4 limes, juice only
2 tsp fajita seasoning
4 spring onions, finely sliced
1 fat garlic clove, crushed
For the salsa
1 red peppe
½ jar roasted pepper
1 small apple, peeled
4 ripe tomatoes
½ lime, juice only
small bunch coriander, leaves picked
chilli sauce, to taste (optional)
For the guacamole
2 very ripe avocados, halved and stone removed
½ lime, juice only
grated cheese, to serve
6 - 8 tortillas(you can now get mini tortillas for kids)
soured cream (optional)
Grown-ups: Put the chicken and marinade ingredients in a bowl and cover. Put in the fridge for at least two hours.
Children: If your children are 5 or over, you can get them to roughly chop the pepper, roasted pepper, apple and tomatoes for the salsa using a good quality firm plastic knife or cutlery knife. Otherwise do this yourself. Younger children can pick the leaves from the coriander and mix them into the salsa.
Grown-ups: Tip the salsa ingredients into a food processor, along with the lime juice and a little seasoning and pulse until finely chopped. Take out 2 large spoons of the mixture for younger children, then add chilli sauce, if using, and pulse again to combine.
Children: Squeeze or spoon the avocado into a bowl and use a potato masher to mash it. Stir in the lime juice and some black pepper with a spoon. Lime juice can sting so grown ups may want to squeeze them for younger children.
Grown-ups: Heat a little olive oil in a frying pan and pour the contents of the chicken bowl into the pan. Cook for 5- 8 minutes or until the chicken chunks are cooked through.
Children: Put the grated cheese, salsa (for grown-ups and children), guacamole and sour cream in separate colourful bowls to put on the table.
Grown-ups: Heat the tortillas according to the pack instructions and put the cooked chicken in a bowl. Show children how to fill and roll their tortilla.
Children: Lay out your tortilla, choose your toppings, roll them up and eat!
