Ingredients
  • 2 tbsp canola or vegetable oil
  • 1 lb beef round, cut into 2 inch cubes or slices
  • 1 bell pepper, cored and cut into 1/2 inch slices (I used half a yellow, half a green)
  • 1/2 large onion, chopped lengthwise into 1/2 inch slices
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp lime juice (optional)
  • 8 flour tortillas
  • cilantro and salsa for garnish
Instructions
  1. Heat a non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Pat your beef chunks dry with a paper towel, and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Once the pan is nice and hot (you can test by spritzing a few drops of water in the pan- if they sizzle away, you're good to go), add the oil and let heat up. Add the beef and let brown for 4-5 minutes. Don't stir too much to start, so the meat is able to get nice and browned. Once browned, use a spatula to flip the meat to get the other sides that great color as well.
  3. Once cooked, remove beef to a plate lined with paper towels. Add the peppers and onions to the same pan, adding more oil if necessary.
  4. Cook vegetables until softened, about 4-5 minutes. Add the meat back to the pan.
  5. Combine chili powder, garlic powder, cumin, and salt in a small bowl. Add the spice mixture to the pan with the meat and vegetables, along with 1/4 cup of water. Stir to combine and get all the flavors incorporated. Add 1 tbsp lime juice, if using, and stir again.
  6. Allow to cook for another minute, remove from heat. Serve on warmed flour tortillas. Enjoy!
