  1. Preheat the grill to medium-high. 
  2. Mix the red wine vinegar, ½ tbsp olive oil, fajita seasoning, garlic and coriander stalks in a bowl. Add the red onion, red pepper and chicken; toss to combine. 
  3. Heat the remaining olive oil in a large ovenproof frying pan over a medium-high heat. Cook the chicken and veg for 6 mins, in batches, tossing frequently until lightly charred. 
  4. Return all the cooked chicken and veg back to the pan and stir in the salsa, along with a few splashes of water to make a sauce consistency; evenly top with the tortilla chips and Cheddar. Place under the grill for 3 mins or until golden and crispy. Keep an eye on it as the tortillas quickly brown. 
  5. Spoon the yogurt into a little bowl. Top the fajita pie with chopped avocado, tomato and coriander leaves. Serve alongside the yogurt, guacamole and lime wedges.
