What you'll need:

  • 1.5 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 2 yellow and 2 red peppers, deseeded and sliced
  • 2 red onions, cut into wedges
  • 1 tsp ground cumin, paprika, and coriander

  • 25g fresh coriander
  • Lime wedges for squeezing
  • 4 x white flour tortillas, warmed
  • 2 little gem lettuce, shredded, to serve
  • Salt and pepper

Time: 30 mins

Serves: 4


Method

First

Season the beef very well with black pepper. Stir fry in half a tbsp of oil in a large pan for 1.5 mins, until browned but not cooked through, then put on a plate to one side.

Second

In the remaining oil and in the same pan, cook the peppers and onion by stir-frying for 5-6 mins. Add the spices, season well, and cook for another minute. Stir in the kidney beans, tomatoes, and return the beef to the pan. Cook for 3 minutes, until the beans and the beef are both hot.

Third

Stir in the chilli and season again. Remove from the heat, scatter with coriander and add a squeeze of lime. Toss gently. Serve by putting some lettuce on a warmed tortilla, piling the beef mix on top, then adding some extra coriander. Serve immediately with a lime wedge on the side.

Wine Match

This beef dish will go brilliantly with a bright, fresh Malbec from Mendoza. Pair it with the Luigi Bosca 'La Linda' Malbec 2017 -- it sure is going to work like a dream!
