Enjoy the taste of Mexico wrapped in a soft tortilla.


  • 300 g lean beef, trimmed of fat, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 large lime, juiced
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp ground cumin or ground coriander
  • pepper
  • 4 tomatoes, diced
  • 1 bunch fresh coriander, chopped
  • olive or canola oil spray
  • 1 large onion, peeled and sliced into thin wedges
  • 1 red capsicum, seeded and sliced into strips
  • 1 green capsicum, seeded and sliced into strips
  • 1 small zucchini, sliced into batons
  • 2 tbs sweet chilli sauce
  • 4 wholegrain or reduced-fat tortillas or soft wraps (20cm)
  • 1/3 cup extra light sour cream , optional


  1. In a small bowl, combine beef, garlic, lemon or lime juice, smoked paprika, 1 teaspoon ground cumin or coriander and season with pepper. Mix well and set aside to marinate while vegetables are prepared.
  2. Combine tomatoes and coriander in a medium bowl and set aside.
  3. Spray a wok or large non-stick frypan with oil and heat. Stir-fry the beef in two batches for 1-2 minutes each until brown and just cooked, then remove from pan and set aside.
  4. Spray pan with oil and return to high heat. Stir-fry onion with remaining teaspoon of cumin or coriander for 3 minutes.
  5. Add in capsicum and zucchini and stir-fry vegetables until tender but still firm and bright.
  6. Stir through sweet chilli sauce and cooked beef then stir-fry until heated through.
  7. Heat tortillas in the microwave for 1 minute on HIGH, or according to packet instructions.
  8. To serve, top tortillas with beef stir-fry, tomato-coriander mix and 2 teaspoons of sour cream then roll up to enclose filling.

Cover bowl, refrigerate and marinate beef for as long as time permits, from 30 minutes to overnight.


For added spice, stir-fry a chopped red chilli with the onion. For a vegetarian option, substitute beef for 2 cans of drained no-added-salt kidney beans and serve with guacamole.

Healthy tip!

To keep lean meats juicy and add flavour, try brushing with a marinade.
