About this recipe: Use strips of marinated steak, capsicum peppers and onions on the plate for these "fa-hee-taas". Whether for your family or a party, this is Mexican fiesta on a plate!
*Use 2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, 140g each, in place of the steak. Slice the chicken into 1cm (½in) strips and, instead of grilling, sauté in 2 tsp olive oil for about 5 minutes or until cooked through.
*Use orange or yellow peppers rather than red.
*Roll up the meat mixture in large lettuce leaves instead of tortillas.
*The vegetable mixture for these fajitas provides more than twice your daily requirement for vitamin C. This important vitamin works as an antioxidant to fight off a wide range of diseases.
*Olive oil is rich in monounsaturated fats and is believed to be partly responsible for the low rates of heart disease and stroke in people in Mediterranean countries. Several studies have shown that replacing saturated fat with olive oil helps to reduce high blood cholesterol levels.
