Chicken fajitas is a dish that I ate many times when I was growing up. I liked taking the time to make my own fajita, picking the toppings that I am in the mood for whether that be grated cheddar cheese, salsa, fresh avocado, guacamole or sour cream. And for this reason it is a nice dish to make and serve to guests. You essentially just have to create the filling, and leave it to your friends or family to make their own. This dish is a spicy version of a fajita, not in the sense that it is hot, but in the sense that there is a wonderful combination of flavours that combine to make a flavourful, sweet and salty meal with the addition of cumin and salsa. Enjoy!

1. In a large non stick frying pan over medium-high heat, add the chicken cubes. Sprinkle a dash of salt over top the chicken as it cooks. Fry until the chicken is cooked through and lightly browned. Remove the chicken from the pan and place in a plate.
2. Add the onions and peppers to the pan. Sprinkle a dash of salt over top the vegetables. Stir fry until the vegetables begin to wilt. Add two tablespoons of the Develey Mexicana Sauce and the cooked chicken back into the pan. Add the cumin to the pan. Stir the mixture together until the vegetables are wilted, about 15 minutes. Add a little water to the pan if the mixture begins to stick to the bottom of the pan. Towards the end of the cooking, add in the fresh coriander.
3. Heat the tortillas as per the instructions on the pack.
4. Serve spoonfuls of the fajita filling over top the tortillas. Add grated cheddar cheese, sour cream, fresh tomato, fresh avocado and/or Develey Mexicana Sauce to taste. Serve alongside onion rings and guacamole.
