Need some inspiration for what to eat tonight? TMC Editor Lydia House shares one of her favourite family meals.

“An everyday classic served in a fun way to encourage your kids to eat more veg.”


*Adjust the amounts to however many people are eating.
½-1 onion
1-2 peppers
1 crushed clove of garlic
½ teaspoon Paprika
1 can of sweetcorn
Grated cheese (DF can be used)
1-2 avocados (sliced or smashed)
½ can of refried beans
Chicken or beef strips
Sour cream or Greek yoghurt
Chopped tomatoes
Slices of lime
Tortilla wraps
Cos salad leaves (can be used instead of wraps)

“My kids love anything that feels like a party, I call this a fajita party, and it gets them excited to eat their food. We smother the wraps in refried beans, and they love them!”


Slice up the peppers and onion.
Add the vegetable oil to your pan, cut your chicken or beef into strips, and cook on high heat for 3 minutes.
Add the onion and peppers, then add the paprika and garlic and toss the ingredients together.
Reduce to medium heat and cook for another 5-10 minutes ensuring the chicken is fully cooked.
While the mixture cooks, rinse the sweetcorn and grate the cheese (or use pre-grated).
Slice or smash your avocado.
Warm up some refried beans.
Add all of your ingredients to a large serving board.
While it cools slightly, warm up your tortillas in the microwave on medium heat for 15-20 seconds.
Add to the board. And serve!

“The great thing I love about fajitas is that the leftovers pack away nicely and can be used for other meals throughout the week, and it can be adapted to dietary requirements, spice levels and taste.
