Beef Fajitas

I got this recipe off of Belly Bytes I was in the mood for fajitas and wanted to do something other than chicken...these were really good, easy, & healthy!

~12 6-inch flour tortillas (I used wheat tortillas)
~1 pound top round beef steak cut into 3/4 inch julienne strips (I just buy the pre-cut stir fry meat)
~3 tablespoons red wine or red wine vinegar
~3 tablespoons vegetable oil
~1/2 teaspoon cumin
~1/2 teaspoon salt
~1 clove garlic, pressed
~2 teaspoons lime juice
~2 medium sweet peppers (red, green or yellow), sliced
~1 medium onion, sliced into rings
~1/2 cup guacamole
~1/2 cup salsa or picante sauce
~1/2 cup sour cream, light
~1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated
Combine wine, oil, cumin, salt, garlic and lime juice. Marinate meat for 2 to 3 hours.
Drain thoroughly. Over medium heat, in a large skillet, brown meat with peppers and onions.
Warm tortillas and serve immediately with meat mixture and toppings.
Recipe makes 6 (2 fajitas each) servings.
One serving (two fajitas) provides approximately: 519 calories, 26 g protein, 46 g carbohydrates, 4 g fiber, 25 g fat (8 g saturated), 63 mg cholesterol, 108 mcg folate, 4 mg iron, 714 mg sodium.
