The Anti-Chicken Fingers Movement ~ Flash Pan Beef Fajitas

I originally got this recipe from weight watchers and morphed it into my own recipe.  The thing I don't like about weight watchers/counting points is that if you eat wheat anything, because it may have more calories, it's higher points than eating white.  I believe the health benefits, and the fact whole grains are harder to break down....make the entire points system idea fruitless for long-term goals.  It's great for learning portion control and healthy fats, but not so good when it comes to whole grains.  Below is my version of the meal.


12-oz boneless sirloin steak, trimmed & thinly sliced
2-tsp ground cumin
1 1/2-tsp blackened steak seasoning
1/4-tsp of salt
1-TBL of olive oil
2- Green Bell Peppers, thinly sliced (can substitute one for another color such as red or yellow if you wish)
1- Lg onion, diced
4 - Whole wheat 8-inch tortillas
1- Lime, cut into wedges (this made the meal)
light sour cream (optional)
salsa (optional)

Combine first four ingredients in a medium bowl; toss well.  Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat and steak mixture to pan until cooked, remove from pan.  Add vegetables to pan (if you need a bit more oil to saute, add it), saute 2 minutes.  Add steak back to pan and cook 30 seconds or so until fully heated.  Squeeze lime juice over the mixture, serve over tortillas with sour cream or salsa as desired.

Happy eating friends! ~Trina
