  • 1 can (398 ml) fire roasted diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 2 tsp (10 ml) Chili Pepper Ancho

Preparation

  • 1 For the crêpes, mix flour, cornstarch and sea salt in a large bowl with wire whisk. Gradually add water, whisking until batter is very smooth. Whisk in sesame oil (batter will be thin). Let stand while preparing filling.
  • 2 For the fajita filling, mix lime juice, 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the oil, honey, garlic powder, sea salt, and pepper in small bowl. Reserve 2 tbsp (30 mL) marinade in bowl. Pour remaining marinade over steak in large resealable plastic bag; turn to coat well. Refrigerate 30 minutes or longer for extra flavour.
  • 3 Heat remaining 2 tbsp (30 mL) oil in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add steak; cook 3 minutes per side or until evenly seared. Remove from pan and place on cutting board.
  • 4 Reduce heat to medium. Add sliced onion and chili pepper to skillet; cook 2-3 minutes or until softened. Stir in tomatoes, reserved marinade, ancho chili pepper and cumin. Bring to boil. Cook 5-6 minutes or until slightly thickened.
  • 5 Slice steak across the grain into thin strips. Return to pan with tomato mixture. Keep warm.
  • 6 To cook crêpes, brush about ½ tsp (2 mL) of the oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Pour about 1/3 cup (75 mL) of the batter into the skillet, tilting to evenly cover bottom of skillet. Cook 2-3 minutes or until bottom of crêpe is lightly browned and crispy. Place crêpe, egg side down, on cutting board. Repeat with remaining batter and eggs.
  • 7 To assemble, spoon 1 cup (250 mL) of the fajita filling and ¼ each of the shredded cheese, avocado and cilantro down the center of the non-egg side of each crêpe. Fold or roll crêpe to enclose filling. Serve immediately with lime wedges.
  • 8 Test Kitchen Tips:

    o Hatch chili peppers are grown in Hatch Valley, New Mexico. They are long and slender with meaty flesh and medium heat. If unavailable, substitute an Anaheim chili pepper.
    o Crêpes can be made ahead of time. Store crepes between layers of waxed paper on a large plate. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate up to 2 days. Reheat crêpes in a hot, oiled skillet, turning to crisp both sides.
    o To take your crêpe on-the-go, cut filled crepe in half then wrap each half in waxed paper or foil.
