I’m willing to bet that most people in the UK had their first experience of fajitas via an Ol Del Paso fajita kit, or similar. I know I did. When I was younger, my family would get together, make a big pot of exotically spiced chicken and veg, with tortillas and various sides. It was genuinely my favourite meal as a kid, in no small part because of the family association.
The recipe I do these days is fairly similar to the one from a packet, but I put in separate spices instead of a pre-made spice mix. It’s virtually no more work, tastes delicious and holds a special place in my heart and belly. Normally I would serve with tortilla wraps but we didn't have any, so I improvised with toasted pita breads.
