Steak Fajitas Recipe

Ingredients:
– 16 oz raw lean flank steak, trimmed
– 4 La Tortilla Factory Whole Wheat Flour Tortillas
– 1/4 cup and 1 tbsp fresh squeezed lime juice (divided)
– 1 tsp olive oil
– 2 garlic cloves, minced
– 1 tsp Kosher salt
– ½ tsp black pepper
– 2 large red bell peppers seeded and cut into strips
– 1 large green pepper(s), seeded and cut into strips
– 1 large red onion, sliced
– ¼ cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped
– 2 medium sized tomatillos, finely chopped
– 2 medium jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped

Directions:
Combine the lime juice, oil, garlic, black pepper, and 1?2 teaspoon of the salt in a ziplock plastic bag; add the beef. Squeeze out the air and seal the bag; turn to coat the beef. Refrigerate, turning the bag occasionally, at least 2 hours or up to 4 hours.
Spray a nonstick ridged grill pan with nonstick spray and place over stove top on medium high heat. This can also be prepared over a regular grill as well.
Put the peppers and onion in a bowl. Lightly spray them with nonstick spray and sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt; toss to coat. Grill the vegetables over medium heat, turning frequently, until tender, about 8 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and toss with jalapeños, cilantro and 1 tbsp lime juice; keep warm.
Remove the flank steak from the plastic bag; discard marinade. Place the steak on the grill pan, turning once, until an instant-read thermometer, inserted in the center of the steak, registers 145°F for medium-rare, about 12 minutes. Transfer the meat to a plate; keep warm. Brown the tortillas until browned in spots, about 1 minute on each side.
Thinly slice the flank steak on the diagonal. Fill each tortilla with 3 to 4 slices of the flank steak, about 1 cup of the vegetables and ¼ of the chopped tomatillos.

  1. I use my 49 extra weekly points on “splurges”. I still lose weight :)

  2. Yeah, I'm choosing to ignore them too. I know they upped the points on all of the foods so that it's easier to obtain the extra points, but I don't understand the whole concept of it completely either.

    so i don't understand the extra 49 points a week with the points plus at all…. i mean doesnt that defeat the purpose of the points?because i get 32 points well with the added extra 49 points your given weekly you wont lose weight! so as of now because i dont know how to use them properly i just ignore the extra 49 points. can anyone help explain?

    • You would use them on one night or day only not throughout the week and then you have a chance of still losing but I wouldn’t make it any kind of habit it’s just to help you not lose your sanity and keep you going without feeling guilty
