+1 1 Can (300g) Edgell Mexi Beans

  • 500g packet tri-coloured capsicums, thickly sliced
  • 2 onions, cut into thick wedges
  • 900g beef rump steak
  • 12 x 21cm soft whole grain flour tortillas
  • 2 medium avocados, mashed
  • Coriander sprigs, jalapenos, chilli sauce & lime wedges, to serve
  • -
  • Marinade:
  • ½ cup lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon Mexican chilli powder
  • Salt & pepper, to taste


To make marinade, combine all ingredients in a medium jug. Mix well.

Toss capsicums and onions in 2 tablespoons of the marinade in a large bowl.

Combine beef and remaining marinade in a shallow dish. Turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Drain beef.

Heat a lightly oiled barbecue grill plate over a high heat. Add beef in two batches. Cook for about 3 minutes on each side, or until cooked to your liking. Don’t over-cook beef. Remove. Cover loosely with foil to keep warm.

Cook capsicums and onions on same grill plate over a medium to high heat, turning for about 5-6 minutes, or until charred and tender.

Cut beef across the grain, into 1cm thick strips.


Top with capsicums, onions, avocados, coriander, jalapenos, chilli sauce and lime wedges.


Mexi Beans can be served warmed or at room temperature.
