Ingredients

Marinade

  • 3 tablespoon Light olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon Lime juice
  • 5 teaspoon Schwartz Cajun Perfect Shake
  • 1 Garlic clove crushed
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt
  • ¼ teaspoon Ground black pepper

Filling

  • 500 g Chicken breast
  • 3 Small mixed bell peppers sliced
  • 3 Small red onions halved and sliced
  • 2 tsp Rapeseed oil

Garnishes

  • Iceberg lettuce shredded
  • Avocado sliced
  • Grated Cheddar
  • Sour cream
  • Lime wedges
  • 8 Small flour tortillas warmed

Instructions

  • Start by putting all the marinade ingredients into a large bowl and whisking together.
  • Slice the chicken in half horizontally and then slice across the grain into strips roughly the same size as the peppers.
  • Add the chicken, peppers and onions to the marinade, mix well and leave to marinade for at least 5 minutes and up to an hour.
  • Heat 2 tsp of rapeseed oil on a high heat in a caste iron skillet (or wok) and using tongs place the meat & vegetables into the pan gradually.
  • Allow the meat to colour and cook for 10 – 15 minutes or until everything is cooked through.
  • At the same time warm the flour tortillas in a frying pan (not non-stick) until they bubble up, then turn over being careful not to burn them and stack them up on a plate.
  • Place all the garnishes, tortillas and skillet (on a board) on the table allowing your guests to assemble their own individual tortillas and don't forget the extra squeeze of lime.
