Recipe Ingredients for Skinny Fajitas

1/4 cup Reduced Fat Mexican Blend Shredded Cheese
3 tsp Garlic
4 tsp Cumin
2 medium (4-1/8" long) Onions, Spring Or Scallions
1 dash Salt, Table
1 dash Pepper, Black
3 medium (2-1/2" dia) Onions strips
1 large (2-1/4 per lb, approx 3-3/4" long, 3" dia) Peppers, Sweet, Green strips
1 medium raw Bell Pepper Red strips
1 medium Yellow Hothouse Bell Pepper strips
1 1tsp Olive Oil
12 tortilla Carb Balance Tortillas
6 tbsp Light Sour Cream
32 oz Tender Beef Beef

Recipe Directions for Skinny Fajitas

  1. Pierce steak with a fork all over to tenderize. Season steak with cumin, garlic, scallions, salt and pepper. Allow steak to rest at room temperature at least 10 minutes before grilling.

  2. In a large grill-safe pan such as a clay Chamba or cast iron skillet combine onions, peppers, olive oil, salt and pepper. Toss well to coat.

  3. Place on the BBQ and cook on medium-low heat, tossing occasionally until onions are caramelized, about 20 minutes. This could also be cooked inside on the stove as well.

  4. When the onions and peppers are done, set aside to keep warm on the top rack of your grill; raise the flame of the grill to high flame.

  5. Discard scallion and sear steak 4-6 minutes without moving, turn the steak over and cook a few more minutes until rare or medium rare (well done will be too tough). Remove from grill and let it rest a few minutes before cutting.

  6. Cut meat into small cubes and combine with the cooked onions and peppers and serve with tortillas, cheese, and sour cream.

  7. 1 serving is 2 fajitas.
