Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the chipolatas and fry for 5 mins, until evenly golden. Add the onions and peppers and fry for 5 mins longer, until starting to soften and the sausages are fully cooked. Mix in the fajita seasoning and cook for 2 mins, until aromatic. Remove from the heat and stir in half the coriander and lime juice.
  2. Warm the tortilla wraps in the microwave for 20 secs until soft, then fill with the sausage mix and top with the lettuce, salsa, cheese and soured cream to serve.

Tip: Cook up the remaining four chipolatas from the pack for tasty leftovers for a picnic or packed lunch.
