Friday Fajita's

When you get that Friday fajita feeling there is only one thing to satisfy your cravings, vegetable fajita's. As its Friday and we had got in late after shopping, we were hungry and I decided I needed to cut corners! 

6 pack flour tortillas
1 pack fajita seasoning mix-HOT

1 carton passata or 1 tin chopped tomatoes
1 onion - sliced in half rings
1 pack of baby corn - cut into strips
¼ small butternut squash - cut into strips
1 red pepper - cut into strips6 florets of broccoli - cut into small pieces
1 courgette - cut into strips1 small tin of refried beans
Mexican Rice

Fry the onions for a couple of minutes then add the baby corn and butternut squash and cook for a couple more minutes. Add the red pepper strips and broccoli and stir, cook for 2-3 minutes. Add the courgette and stir to combine, cook for another 2-3 minutes. Really all you are doing is stir-frying the vegetables.Sprinkle over the packet of fajita mix and stir to coat evenly. Add in the tin of chopped tomatoes (or carton of passata) and stir. Add in the refried beans, this thickens the mixture.
Leave to simmer for 5-10 minutes, stirring regularly so as not to let the mixture stick to the bottom of the pan.
Whilst the mixture is simmering heat the flour tortillas in the microwave for 45-60 seconds depending on the wattage of the microwave. Serve with Mexican rice, soya yoghurt, guacamole and salsa
