    main meals | This flavorful fajita filling is so good that you don't need a tortilla. If you want to wrap it up, use a lettuce leaf.

    List of Ingredients

    2 sprays cooking spray, divided
    12 oz lean sirloin beef, about 1/2-inch thick, trimmed
    1 1/2 Tbsp fresh lime juice, divided
    1 1/4 tsp chili powder, divided
    1 large onion(s), sliced
    1 large sweet red pepper(s), sliced
    1/4 tsp table salt
    1/4 cup cilantro, fresh, chopped
    1/2 cup salsa
    1/4 cup fat-free sour cream
    8 large leaf lettuce, green leaf-variety (optional)


    Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Heat skillet over medium-high heat. Meanwhile, drizzle steak with 2 teaspoons of lime juice and then sprinkle it with 1 teaspoon of chili powder.

    Add steak to skillet and cook over medium-high heat for 6 minutes, turning once, for medium-rare, or longer until desired doneness. Remove to a cutting board and let stand.

    Add onion, pepper and salt to skillet. Off heat, coat vegetables with cooking spray. Sauté over medium-high heat until onions and peppers are lightly browned and crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in remaining lime juice, chili powder and cilantro.

    Slice steak thinly across grain. Toss sliced steak with onion mixture and serve with salsa and sour cream. Wrap up in lettuce leaves if desired. Yields about 4 slices of beef, 3/4 cup of vegetables, 2 tablespoons of salsa and 1 tablespoon of sour cream per serving.
