    4 chicken breast, cut into chunks
    olive oil
    olive oil

    , for frying

For the marinade

    4 lime

    , juice only
    2 tsp fajita seasoning
    4 spring onion
    Spring onions

    , finely sliced
    1 fat garlic clove, crushed

For the salsa

    1 red pepper
    ½ jar roasted pepper

    (we used Gaea Red Peppers Flame Roasted 290g)
    1 small apple

    , peeled
    4 ripe tomato

    ½ lime

    , juice only
    small bunch coriander, leaves picked
    chilli sauce, to taste (optional)

For the guacamole

    2 very ripe avocado

    , halved and stone removed
    ½ lime

    , juice only
    grated cheese, to serve

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!
