INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/2 tsp Garlic
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 fl oz Fresh Lime Juice
  • 1 pepper Jalapeno Peppers
  • 2 tsp Cumin
  • 2 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 32 oz, boneless, raw (yield after cooking) Steak
  • 12 tortilla Low Carb Tortillas
  • 1 tbsp Canola Vegetable Oil

  • 3/4 cup Green Tomato Chile Sauce (Salsa Verde)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Make marinade: In a large bowl or resealable plastic bag, combine minced garlic, salt, lime juice, finley diced jalapeno, cumin and olive oil; whisk together. Add steak and toss to coat well. Marinate, refrigerated at least 1 hour, preferably over night for the flavors to blend.
  2. Heat oven to 350° F. Wrap tortillas in foil; place in oven to warm 15 minutes before serving.
  3. Remove steak from marinade; discard marinade. Grill 5 inches over hot coals (or over medium-high heat) 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium-rare; set aside.
  4. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat canola oil. Cook sliced bell peppers and onion for about 5 minutes, until vegetables are softened.
  5. Slice steak thinly across the grain.
  6. To assemble fajitas, spread tortillas with salsa, top with steak slices and vegetable mixture, sour cream, and chopped cilantro. Fold over and serve.

How we calculate the Net Atkins Count™

In the Atkins Nutritional Approach®, the Net Atkins Count™ is calculated by subtracting the number of grams of fiber and polyols (such as glycerin and sugar alcohols) from the total grams of carbohydrates in whole foods. This reflects the idea that fiber and polyols minimally impacts blood sugar levels at the doses present in the products.
