  1. Mash together the avocado and lime juice. Stir through the sweetcorn, tomato, half the coriander and seasoning to make a salsa. Set aside, covered with cling film.

  2. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan or griddle pan and cook the onions for about 8 mins until lightly charred and slightly softened. Remove to a warmed serving dish.

  3. Dust the steak with the fajita seasoning and some black pepper, then add to the pan. Cook for 2-3 mins, depending on how rare you like it, then add to the onions. Meanwhile, warm the tortillas following pack instructions. Serve the steak and onions with the tortillas, salsa, lettuce, jalapeño peppers and lime wedges.

Great meal for a Saturday night. I fried up the onions before adding the steak for the last few minutes.

A tasty supper, I used some thin cut steak that I had in the freezer and made the salsa without the tomato so added some fresh red chilli. I was dubious as to whether the onions would cook sufficiently on the griddle and was pleasantly surprised.
