Beef Fajitas

Beef Fajitas
By: Betty Crocker

"Old El Paso® Favorite Recipe! Marinate beef steak strips in a kicky lime mixture before cooking. Then serve in warm tortillas with onions, peppers, salsa and guacamole."

Prep Time:25 min
Start to Finish:55 min
Makes:4 fajitas

2 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 teaspoons chili powder
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

3/4 lb lean boneless beef top round steak, slightly frozen, cut into thin strips
1 onion, thinly sliced
1 red or green bell pepper, cut into strips
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1/4 cup cold water
1/3 cup guacamole
4 Old El Paso® flour tortillas for burritos (from 11.5-oz package), heated
1/3 cup Old El Paso® salsa (any variety)

1. In medium nonmetal bowl, stir together all marinade ingredients. Add beef strips; stir to coat. Cover; refrigerate 30 minutes to marinate, stirring occasionally.
2. Spray 12-inch nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Heat over medium-high heat until hot. Add beef and marinade; cook and stir 2 minutes. Add onion and bell pepper; cook and stir 3 to 4 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender and beef is no longer pink. In small bowl, stir cornstarch and cold water until smooth. Add to beef mixture; cook and stir 1 to 2 minutes or until thickened.
3. To serve, spoon 1/4 of guacamole down center of each tortilla. Top each with 1/4 of beef mixture. Top with salsa. Fold bottom edge of tortilla toward center; fold 2 sides toward center, slightly overlapping.

High Altitude (3500-6500 ft): After adding vegetables, cook about 5 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender.
