Beef fajitas with avocado salsa, cheese and soured cream

Makes a great hands-on meal to share with friends.

Low Carb High Fat Tex Mex at it’s best…
Pile on the soured cream and cheese. It all aids weight loss… (it’s a great keto party dish too)

Serves 2


8oz Rump or rib-eye steak, tenderised with a rolling pin and cut into strips

1 red pepper, sliced

2 red onions, half diced for salsa, the rest sliced

1 heaped teaspoon Smoked paprika

1 teaspoon cumin seeds

1 bunch coriander, leaves picked and stalks chopped

1 avocado, diced

2 large tomatoes, diced

1 fresh chilli, deseeded and finely chopped

1 lime

2 tablespoons 
olive oil

1 or 2 little gem lettuces

2 handfuls grated cheddar cheese (approx. 150g)

150ml soured cream

1 tablespoon chopped chives


  1. Put strips of steak into a bowl and sprinkle with smoked paprika and cumin seeds.
  2. Squeeze juice of half the lime over, mix and leave to marinate.
  3. Drizzle peppers and onions with oil
  4. Mix together avocado, tomato, chilli and the diced half onion, coriander stalks.
  5. Squeeze over the remaining half a lime and douse with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Grate cheese, break little gem lettuces into individual leaves and stir chives into soured cream.
  7. Heat a griddle pan and a wok.
  8. Place strips of steak across the ridges of griddle pan a cook quickly. Turn once. Or simply stir-fry steak in a frying pan.
  9. At the same time quickly stir-fry onions and peppers in a separate wok or frying pan until they are browned at the edges but still retain some bite.
  10. Serve every component in a separate bowl and make up wraps of lettuce, soured cream, meat, vegetables, cheese and salsa!

Tips: you can do exactly the same with strips of chicken breast instead of steak.
