After a busy day with the chooks, especially with the snow and freezing weather making every task outside take twice the time, a quick and easy dinner is the perfect antidote. Fajitas are a real favourite and are so easy to make!

You will need - 
1 red pepper
1 large red onion
Some thinly sliced free-range chicken breasts (the amount depends on how hungry you are!)
1tsp paprika
pinch of ground cumin
1 lime
Olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper
1 hot chilli pepper
A handful of mushrooms
Flour tortillas
Sour cream
Avocado (or some guacamole)
Homemade Salsa
Chedder Cheese
Fancy salad (at this time of year I buy a bag, but in the summer it's fresh-from-the-garden cut-and-come-again salad leaves!)

Add thinly sliced pepper, onion and chicken to a bowl and add in the paprika and cumin. Squeeze over the juice of half a lime and a drizzle of olive oil. Grind some black pepper over and allow to marinade for 20mins.

Fry off the marinaded mix in a pre-heated heavy bottomed pan or griddle and cook for about 6-8mins until cooked through.

Add the mushrooms and chilli and season with more spice to taste! I like it nice and hot! Before you serve squeeze over the rest of the lime juice.

Warm the tortillas in the microwave for a few seconds and serve! I'm not a fan of guacamole (I don't like the texture), but a bit of avocado goes down treat!

Chuck some of the chicken/veg mix into your tortilla and add in the salad, sour cream, salsa, avocado/guacamole, and cheese before wrapping up and eating!
