Fajitas  

  • 340 g rump steak, sliced 
  • 1/2 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced

  • 60 ml cold water 
  • 80 g guacamole
  • 4 Old El Paso™ Super Soft Flour Tortillas, warmed

Instructions

1.   Stir the marinade ingredients together in a medium bowl. Add beef strips and stir to combine. Cover and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes to marinate.

2.   Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat then add the beef and marinade and cook for 2 minutes. Stir in the onion and peppers and continue to cook for 3 to 4 minutes, until the vegetables are just tender.

3. Stir together the cornflour and water in a small bowl, until smooth. Pour into the beef mixture and cook, stirring, for 1to 2 minutes, until thickened.

4.   Lay each tortilla onto a plate and divide the guacamole between them. Top each with 1/4 of the beef mixture and the salsa. Wrap each tortilla, folding the bottom edge up before rolling and serve.

Great served with a pineapple or mango salsa.

Roll up together with some lettuce, fresh tomatoes and coriander leaves for a change.
