Jaylen's fajitas

These were an easy choice for dinner last night

First the spice mix:
4 tablespoons cornflour
5 teaspoons chilli powder
3 teaspoons salt flakes
4 teaspoons raw sugar
4 teaspoons paprika
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin

Grind for 10 seconds at speed 9 - this makes enough for 2 or 3 batches

Then prepare some meat strips (we used beef but chicken works too). Mix 2-3 tablespoons spice mix with 1 kg meat.
Slice onion and capsicum
Saute onion and capsicum in non stick pan with a little oil, set aside and cook meat in same pan in 2 batches. Return all to pan and mix together.

We served this with tortillas, salsa, sour cream and Skinnymixers amazing chilli conqueso. There isn't much in the way of leftovers!
