Method

1. Heat the oil in a large nonstick frying pan over a medium heat. Add the frozen fajita mix and cook for 10-15 mins until all the liquid has evaporated and the chicken is beginning to colour.

2. Meanwhile, cook the rice according to pack instructions, then divide between 2 bowls.

3. When the fajita mixture is cooked, add to the bowls along with the rice. Add the drained black beans to the pan along with the juice of ½ a lime and the chopped coriander. Cook for 1-2 mins, stirring, until heated through, then spoon into the bowls.

4. Divide the lettuce between the bowls, then top with the salsa and crumbled feta. Add a few tortilla chips to the side of each bowl along with the wedges of lime and sprinkle with a little extra coriander before serving.
