Ingredients

  • 1/2 Teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 Teaspoon paprika
  • 1/8 Teaspoon cayenne
  • 12 Ounces boneless beef sirloin steak, trimmed and cut into very thin bite-sized strips
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 Teaspoons canola oil
  • 2 medium-sized yellow or green sweet peppers, cut into thin bite-sized strips
  • 1 medium-sized onion, halved and sliced thinly
  • Two 14-ounce cans reduced-sodium beef broth
  • One 14 1/2-ounce can no-salt-added diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 Cup light sour cream
  • 1/2 Teaspoon finely shredded lime zest
  • 1 Ounce baked tortilla chips, crushed coarsely
  • 1/2 avocado, pitted, peeled, and chopped (optional)
  • 1/4 Cup snipped cilantro (optional)

Directions

In a medium-sized bowl, combine the garlic powder, cumin, paprika, and cayenne. Add the steak strips and toss to coat. Coat a 4-quart nonstick Dutch oven with cooking spray and place over medium-high heat. Add the steak strips, half at a time and cook until brown, stirring occasionally, for 2-4 minutes. Remove the meat from the pan.

Heat the oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the sweet peppers and onion and cook until lightly browned and just tender, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Add the broth and undrained tomatoes. Bring to a boil. Stir in the steak strips and heat through.

Add a dollop of sour cream to each serving and top with lime zest and tortilla chips. If desired, top with avocado and cilantro.
