Beef & Mediterranean vegetables fajitas

The perfect week for me would be if I could only eat tortilla dishes each day, of course always preparing various new and old recipes, my family wouldn’t agree and they wouldn’t even want to see tortillas in the house after the third day of my perfect week. I love tortillas as fajitas, enchiladas, tacos, wraps, burritos, and come to think of it, maybe I could pull off a perfect Tortilla week later this month when I leave for Budapest and find myself in a perfect situation to try each and every recipe that uses tortillas.

Today after some good news I got, can’t tell you right away what they were about, because I don’t want to jinx it, I decided to make fajitas. This time I used an interesting combination of vegetables with spicy beef, the combination would be more of a Mediterranean one than a Mexican, but the flavours worked perfectly together.

Beef & vegetable fajitas

How to

  1. Season sliced beef with salt, pepper and red paprika. Sprinkle some olive oil over and set aside to marinade.
  2. Whisk together tomato sauce, chili flakes, Tabasco sauce and Worcestershire sauce in a small bowl.
  3. Heat olive oil in a large sauce pan or a wok. Add sliced onion and garlic, let them simmer for a few minutes until soft. Stir in sliced zucchini, bell pepper and marinated beef. Toss a few times and cook until beef is cooked all the way through.
  4. Stir in cherry tomatoes, red kidney beans, corn, sliced olives and top it off with tomato sauce. Cook for 5 to 10 more minutes until all the ingredients are cooked and combined with the sauce.
  5. Heat a large pan, place each flour tortilla at a time on top of it for less than a minute on each side until soft. Top tortillas with cooked hot beef and vegetables, covered in grated Edam cheese, close them up and enjoy!
