Easy chicken fajitas

A Mexican feast for the whole family using Avonmore Grated Cheddar and Sour cream


  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 600g chicken fillets
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 3 peppers (use different colours), deseeded and sliced

For the spice rub:

  • 1 tbsp cornflour
  • 2 tsp chilli powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp ground cumin


  1. Stir together all of the ingredients for the spice rub. Brush the lime juice over the chicken, then coat completely in the spice rub.
  2. Heat half of the oil in a large frying pan over a high heat. When hot, add the chicken and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side until they are cooked through and have a good colouring from the spices.
  3. Remove the chicken to a chopping board, cover with foil and leave to rest for five minutes.
  4. Heat the remaining oil in the pan and cook the onion and peppers for 5-7 minutes until browned and softened.
  5. Slice the chicken into strips. Serve in warm tortillas with the peppers, onion, salsa, grated Cheddar and a spoonful of Avonmore Low-Fat Sour Cream.

To serve:

8-12 tortillas, warmed
Cheddar, grated
Avonmore Low-Fat Sour Cream
