Beef Fajitas

Beef Fajitas

Introduction

I got this receipe from the mayo clinic website. I was looking for heart healthy high fiber foods for people with high blood pressure and colon problems. This is our family's favorite meal. Even the kids love it. Try adding fat free refried beans, serve it on the side or on the fajita. The mayo clinic website calculates the calories at 307, Protein at 34g, Carbs at 32, Cholesterol at 51mg, Sodium at 494mg and Fiber at 11g. The recipe calculater came out a little differently.

Ingredients

    1 Tbsp Chili powder
    1/2 tsp ground oregano
    1/2 tsp paprika
    1/4 tsp garlic powder
    1/8 tsp salt
    Ground black pepper to taste
    12 ounces beef sirloin, select grade, cut into strips 1/2 inch wide and 2 inches long
    1 red onion, cut into strips
    1 green bell pepper, cut into strips
    4 whole-wheat tortillas, about 8 inches in. diameter, warmed in the microwave
    1/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
    2 medium tomatoes, diced
    2 cups shredded lettuce
    1/2 cup salsa

Directions

Serves 4
Seving size 1 fajita

In a small bowl, stir together the chili powder, oregano, paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Dredge the serloin pieces in the seasoning, coating completely. (I use a medium bowl, throw the meat in the bowl and use a spoon to stir it, don't use your hands, you'll get more mixture on your hands than the meat)

In a nonstick frying pan (I use the george foreman grille) cook the sirloin strips over medium heat until slightly pink, about 8 minutes (george foreman takes about 3 or 4 minutes). Add the onion and green pepper strips and saute until the vegetalbes are tender, about 5 minutes (I take the meat off the foreman, and cook the onions and green peppers on the foreman for about 3 or 4 minutes).

To serve, spread an equal amount of meat and vegetable mixture on each tortilla. Top with 1 Tbsp of cheese, 1/4 of the diced tomatoes, 1/2 cup of shredded lettuce and 2 Tbsp of salsa. Fold both sides of each tortilla up over the filling, and then roll to close. Serve immediately.
