  2. Heat the oil in a large pan or wok and stir-fry the chicken for 2 minutes.
  3. Add the vegetables and stir-fry for a further 3 to 4 minutes, until the chicken has cooked through and the vegetables have softened slightly.
  4. Add the ketchup mixture and cook, stirring for a further one minute. Then remove from the heat.
  5. To make the salsa, mix all of the ingredients together in a small bowl and season to taste with salt and pepper.Cover and chill until needed – it will keep for up to 2 days in the fridge.
  6. Warm the tortillas for 10 to 15 seconds in a microwave, or for 20 seconds each in a dry frying pan. Spoon the fajita filling down the centre of the wrap and spoon over the salsa plus the soured cream and guacamole (if using).
