    Top tip for making Veggie fajitas

    Woman's Weekly cookery editor Sue McMahon says: For the guacamole, mash 1 ripe avocado with the juice of half a lemon or a 1 lime and season well. For a homemade salsa, finely chop 1 small onion and 2 ripe tomatoes and add some chopped parsley, seasoning and a little oil and vinegar.
