  1. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large frying pan over a high heat; fry the mushrooms and sliced onions for 8-10 mins until lightly golden. Add the frozen peppers, fry for 5 mins until softened and the water has evaporated, then add the garlic and cook for 1 min. Reduce the heat to medium, stir in the spice mix and cook for 1-2 mins until the veg is well coated. Add 2 tbsp water if the spices stick to the pan or the mixture looks slightly dry.
  2. Meanwhile, heat 1 tbsp oil in a separate frying pan over a medium-high heat. Tip in the sweetcorn and fry for 8-10 mins, stirring occasionally, until golden and lightly charred in places. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the cherry tomatoes, finely chopped onion and lemon juice. Allow to cool for a few mins.
  3. Warm the tortillas in a dry frying pan over a high heat for 5 secs each side, or microwave as a stack for 30-60 secs until warm. Just before serving, stir the crumbled salad cheese into the corn salsa. Serve everything in the middle of the table and let people help themselves to the fajita mushroom mix, salsa and spinach.
