This flavourful fajita filling is so good that you don’t need a tortilla. If you want to wrap it up, use a lettuce leaf.

Ingredients

Cooking spray

2 spray(s), (5 one-second sprays per serving)

Uncooked lean trimmed sirloin beef

12 oz, about 1/2-inch thick, trimmed

Fresh lime juice

1½ Tbsp

Chili powder

1¼ tsp

Uncooked onion(s)

1 large, sliced

Sweet red pepper(s)

1 large, sliced

Table salt

¼ tsp

Cilantro

¼ cup(s), fresh, chopped

Lettuce

8 leaf/leaves, large, green leaf-variety

Fat free salsa

½ cup(s)

Fat free sour cream

¼ cup(s)

Instructions

  1. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Heat skillet over medium-high heat. Meanwhile, drizzle steak with 2 teaspoons of lime juice and then sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of chili powder.
  2. Add steak to skillet and cook over medium-high heat for 6 minutes, turning once, for medium-rare. Remove to a cutting board and let stand.
  3. Add onion, peppers and salt to skillet. Off heat, coat vegetables with cooking spray. Sauté over medium -high heat until onions and peppers are lightly browned and crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in remaining lime juice, chili powder and cilantro.
  4. Slice steak thinly. Toss sliced steak with onion mixture and serve with salsa and sour cream. Yields about 4 slices of beef, 3/4 cup of vegetables, 2 tablespoons of salsa and 1 tablespoon of sour cream per serving.
