    I made the most amazing beef fajitas tonight, even if I do say so myself!! I'm going to estimate the spices as I doesn't measure really! But I used big bags of most spices so do know roughly. Top with natural yoghurt, soured cream or nothing as you wish! The amounts of the peppers and stuff was purely because that's only how much I had so obviously weak according to taste!

    I had this in 2 tortilla wraps (I used the fajita kit ones from Aldi, we'd already used the Salsa and spices and they were 100 cals each) but you could probably split across 3 if you wanted to.

    1 medium onion
    1/4 red pepper
    1/3 yellow pepper
    125g strips of beef (I used Tesco quick cook beef strips)
    Tortilla wraps
    2tsp chilli powder
    1tsp paprika
    1tsp ground cumin (jeera powder)
    1 chopped garlic clove (or use garlic paste, up to you!)

    I don't think most of you need instructions but I'll give a quick run down in case. Chuck the onion into a wok or big frying pan, after a few mins add the beef. Once browned, add the pepper and onion and also the spices. You can add a little water if you like it with a bit of sauce. Cook until the veg is done to your taste... I like them with a little bit of crunch still, don't like slimy peppers!

    Here's what it looks like...

    Looks fab! How many wraps do you need round abouts?

    Looks good like the idea of the yogurt instead of sour cream! X
