Preparation method

  1. For the tomato salsa, heat the oil in a saucepan, add the tomatoes, pepper and onion and simmer for about five minutes until softened. Stir in the sugar, salt and oregano and simmer for a further five minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in the jalapenos and set aside to cool.

  2. For the refried beans, tip the beans into a saucepan, add enough water to just cover then add the onion, garlic and cumin. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper, bring to a boil then reduce the heat and simmer for ten minutes. Drain the mixture and mash roughly. Keep warm.

  3. For the steak, in a large bowl, marinate the beef strips in the tequila for ten minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, for the guacamole, cut the avocado in half, remove the stone and scoop out the flesh into a mixing bowl. Mash roughly with a fork then stir in all the remaining ingredients. Set aside.

  5. To cook the steak, Drain the marinade off the steak strips. Heat a griddle pan to smoking point and brush with the oil. Add the peppers to the pan and griddle for 2-3 minutes. Add the steak strips to the pan with the peppers and griddle for 2-3 minutes, turning once or twice, until lightly charred in places. Remove the steak and peppers from the griddle and keep warm until ready to serve.

  6. To serve, top the tortillas with the steak and peppers followed by salsa, guacamole, refried beans, sour cream and grated cheese and garnish with coriander.
