Sizzling steak fajitas (slimming world friendly)

I love fajitas but the wraps are high in syns and the spice mixes can contain sugar and oil which aren't exactly slimming world friendly. This way you make your own spice mix which is not complicated and serve the spicy steak fajitas over rice instead of usng the wraps and this makes it all syn free and healthy but keeps all the flavour . I used lean steak but you can use chicken or just vegetables if you want to make it vegetarian. 

The spice mix is very easy just mix all the ingredients together and keep it in a clean container in the cupboard this amount makes enough for about 4 meals so although you need to buy the spices to start with it works out much cheaper than buying the spice mix sachets.You also can customize it as to how hot you like it. I use mild chili powder as I don't like it too hot but you can up the spice as you like it.


Spice Mix


2 tsp garlic granules
2 tsp onion granules
6 tsp mild chili powder
4 tsp smoked paprika
4 tsp salt
2 tsp cumin
4tsp chicken bouillon powder (or 4 chicken oxos crumbled into powder or if keeping it veggie use vegetable bouillon powder)


Mix all the ingredients together and store in a container in the cupboard, Makes enough for about 4 meals . 



Sizzling steak fajitas


1lb thin beef steaks (trimmed of all fat) cut into strips
1 red pepper (sliced)
1 green pepper (sliced)
1 yellow pepper (sliced)
1 large onion (sliced)
spray oil


Spray a large frying pan or wok with oil and add the steaks and stir fry until starting to brown, Add 3 tsp of the spice mix and stir fry for another minute or two then add the vegetables and keep stir frying until the vegetables are softened. Serve over boiled rice


Syn free on extra easy

  2. Looks great, I use a similar mix and it so much better than shop bought. I like having my fajitas in an egg wrap sometimes for a change to rice as I mainly do green and original days x
