Total time: 40 minutes

Prep time: 20 minutes, Cook time: 20 minutes

Ingredients for 4 people

3/4 cup of flour

1/2 cup of corn flour

1 tsp of salt

1 tsp of baking powder

1 tsp of sunflower oil

2 onions

1 red bell pepper

1 green bell pepper

3/55 lb of ground beef

2 tsp of tomato paste

1 avocado

1 cl of olive oil

1 tsp of fajita spice mix: garlic, cumin, chili

1 botte of fresh cilantro

Step 1/4

In a bowl, mix the two flours, salt, and baking powder. Pour in ¾ cup water and the sunflower oil, then knead by hand for 5 minutes. Let the dough rest for 30 minutes.

Step 2/4

Divide the dough into 4 equal portions on a well-floured work surface, roll out each dough piece thinly with a rolling pin to form tortillas. In a skillet, cook the tortillas (without adding any oil/fat) for 1 1/2 minutes on each side.

Step 3/4

Prepare the filling. Peel the onions, dice the first one and cut the second one into thin strips. Wash and cut the peppers into strips. In a frying pan, heat a little olive oil, then add the diced onions and spices. Let them brown, then add the meat and tomato paste. Cook for 10 minutes. In a separate pan, heat a little olive oil, then cook the peppers and the onion in strips over medium heat.

Step 4/4

Peel and slice avocado. Place a few avocado slices, some meat and a handful of grilled vegetables on each tortilla. Sprinkle with cilantro leaves, then fold over the edges. Enjoy!

Chefclub's Tips & Hacks

Traditionally, Mexican fajitas are served with a beef filling. However, why not change the rules and try them with chicken, scrambled eggs, or even tofu for a vegan option? You can also enhance this meat filling with red kidney beans, grated cheddar cheese, or sour cream.
