Roll the pointed end of the triangle around the filling and secure with a cocktail stick. Place on a baking tray lined with baking parchment. Fill and roll the other triangles.

  4. When ready to serve, heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Uncover the fajitas and bake for 6-8 mins or until hot throughout. Serve with the guacamole.
