mixed bean and avocado fajitas.


A simple vegetarian recipe made up of a Mexican bean medley, homemade guacamole and Quorn chicken style pieces cooked in fajita spices. I've been making a lot of tortilla and burrito styles dishes lately so thought I'd share this one with you too.

Shopping list
Makes one portion
One very ripe avocado 
♥ 20g tomatoes, chopped
Half a red onion, chopped
Two garlic cloves, finely chopped
A three bean medley of your choice
Three tortillas
♥ 60g Quorn chicken style pieces
Fajitaseasoning; can be made from chilli powder, cayenne pepper, paprika and mixed herbs
Sour cream to your taste
Squeeze of fresh lime



Step one. First mash up the avocado, tomatoes, red onion, half the lime and garlic to make a chunky guacamole type mix.



Step two. Cook the Quorn pieces in the spices for around 5-10 minutes on a medium heat with a dash of oil. Lightly mash the mixed beans and slowly warm them up on a low heat.


Step three. When you have the three elements, simple wrap up on a tortilla; i used wheat and white. 


Lastly add sour cream and a squeeze of lime and ta da! I've since found out if that if you wrap up the tortilla in foil like a burrito, it's much easier to eat and keeps it warm too. You could always prep all these ingredients and freeze them too - in fact I've got some mixed pepper chilli defrosting ready for tea right now!

What do you like to put in your wraps? Do you have any favourite Mexican inspired recipes with lots of veggies?

  1. Wow! Those fajitas look amazing! I love quorn, but I find it rather dry sometimes. I bet it tastes amazing with the guacamole. I'll definitely steal this recipe to please some meat eaters when they come round for dinner sometime!
