Oven-baked vegetable fajitas

This is a firm favourite in my house – it’s the go-to easy meal, which is probably dished up once a week. It’s by no means an authentic Mexican recipe. I’ve massively simplified it over the years, down to the very basics. So there are no blending of multiple spices to get just the right flavour, in fact you just bung in one spice and you’re done. It’s definitely a cheat, but that’s what makes it so easy in my book!

    You can add the wraps in for the last couple of minutes to soften them..DSCF8448(2).jpg
  4. Once the vegetables are cooked add then into the wraps with the avocado, cheese, coriander and a squeeze of lime. Add a dash of chilli sauce if you like it spicy.



My absolute favourite chilli sauce has to be Cholula – you should be able to pick up a bottle in your local supermarket. But be a little cautious at first – it has quite a zing!
