Method

  1. In a large bowl, combine the brown onion, garlic, salt, oregano, cumin, vinegar, lime juice, Worcestershire sauce and 1 tablespoon of the vegetable oil. Toss the beef through the mixture. Cover and marinate – 4 hours is ripping, but 1 hour will do.
  2. Preheat the grill of your barbecue to medium heat.
  3. To make the salsa, combine all of the ingredients in a bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. To make the guacamole, mash the avocado with a fork until smooth. Stir in all of the other ingredients and add salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Lightly brush the capsicums and red onion with oil. Cook the vegetables for 6–8 minutes per side, or until cooked through.
  6. Drain the beef and discard the marinade. Cook the meat for 2–3 minutes, or until cooked.
  7. Meanwile, warm the tortillas according to the packet instructions.
  8. Transfer the beef to a plate and keep warm. Remove the vegetables to a chopping board. Cut the capsicums into bite-sized strips and separate the onion into pieces.
  9. Arrange everything on a large platter so everyone can choose their own fillings. Serve with the tortillas and salsa, guacamole, sour cream and cheese.
