I absolutely love all types of Mexican food, and for me fajitas are one of the simplest yet tastiest things around. These lime steak fajitas are delicious and refreshing, they will go down a storm at your next party.

Start off by getting two pans, ideally one being a griddle if possible. Warm the griddle pan and add the tortillas to it to scorch slightly, repeat both sides and stack until done. Keep the pan warm. In a large mixing bowl combine the peppers, onions and mushrooms with a little oil (a teaspoon or so) and stir to coat well, add to the griddle pan, we will cook these through until charred stirring from time to time.

Meanwhile coat the steak in a little oil, pepper, lime zest and the paprika rub both sides of the steak and pan fry to your liking. I did mine medium rare in the video which is my favourite way. Remove from the pan once cooked and allow to rest to relax the meat. Keep your eye on the vegetables and remove from the heat once charred and softened.

Mix in a small bowl the sour cream with the lime zest and coriander plus a little more pepper.

Serve the fajitas on the wraps with a layer of the sour cream on top, then the steak, vegetables and a fresh top of coriander and lime juice. Super delicious!
