Chorizo Fajita Traybake Recipe

Chorizo Fajita Traybake Recipe

This is so easy, yet so yummy. Just preheat the oven with a baking dish inside, bung everything in once it’s hot, and bake. Then you serve it with smooth crème fraîche, which stops it being dry as well as adding a luxuriously creamy flavour. Rather than Tex-Mex, this chorizo fajita traybake recipe fuses Spanish and Mexican flavours.

To serve four, simply make up and bake two dishes instead of one in exactly the same way. You will also need more creme fraiche, although a dollop – or tablespoon – per person is plenty.

Traybake recipes like this are so easy – great for informal entertaining. For some reason an oven-baked dish seems to impress people all the more. Even though it actually often takes less time and effort than anything else!
