Loose Beef Fajitas

main dish, low fat, beef

12 ounces ground sirloin beef
1 cup chopped onions
1/2 cup chopped green peppers
1/2 cup chopped sweet red peppers
2 garlic cloves; minced
2 teaspoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 cup chunky salsa
1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
8 corn or flour tortillas; warmed

In a large nonstick skillet, cook the beef, onions, green and red peppers and garlic over medium heat about 5 minutes or until the beef is browned and the vegetables are tender, stirring frequently. Stir in the chili powder and cumin and cook for 1 minute. Add the salsa and tomatoes. Bring to a gentle boil, then reduce the heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 4 to 5 minutes or until the liquid reduces slightly, stirring occasionally. To serve, spoon some of the beef mixture just below the center on each of the tortillas. Fold the bottom edge of each tortilla over the filling, then fold in the sides and roll up to enclose the filling. This recipe yields 4 servings. Slimming strategy: For an easy, low-fat Mexican topping, stir a small amount of chili powder or cumin, or chopped cucumbers, green onions or your favorite fresh vegetable, into nonfat sour cream or plain yogurt. Or top your entree with salsa; 2 tablespoons of a low-fat brand contains only about 8 calories and no fat. Comments: Not only is this recipe fast and tasty, it is lower in fat and calories than the traditional fajita recipes.
