Beef Fajitas

This classic southwestern-style beef dish is a perfect low fat supper, so long as you use fat-free sour cream.


  • 3/4 pound boneless beef round, trimmed and cut into strips
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 1 yellow pepper, seeded and cut into strips
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and cut into strips
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 fat-free whole-wheat tortillas, warmed
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 4 tbsp fat-free sour cream
  • Chopped cilantro to garnish


Combine lime juice, cumin, chili powder and garlic in a glass dish. Add beef and toss to coat. Cover with wrap and marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours. Remove beef strips and discard marinade.

In a large nonstick skillet, heat tablespoon of oil. Add beef strips, bell peppers and red onion, stirring and tossing until beef is cooked - about 5 minutes.

Divide fajita mixture among four tortillas. Garnish with salsa, fat free sour cream and cilantro, and roll them up. Serves 4.
