  • On a board, cut the avocado in half. Twist the halves in opposite directions to separate. Remove stone with a spoon. Score flesh into squares. Scoop into a bowl.

  • Cut the tomato in half. Place it flat side down on your chopping board and slice. Cut each slice into three. Add to the avocado.

  • Cut lime in half. Squeeze and pour into the bowl with the avocado. Add two grinds of black pepper. Using scissors, snip in the coriander leaves. Mash with a fork.

  • Pull the leaves off the lettuce. Wash, then dry with kitchen paper. Pile the lettuce leaves on the chopping board and slice into shreds.

  • Slice peppers in half. Scoop out the core, seeds and white pith with a teaspoon. Put flat side down on the chopping board. Cut into long strips about 1cm wide.

  • Using a teaspoon, mix ground coriander, cumin and cayenne pepper in a small bowl.

  • Heat half the oil in a frying pan. Add the peppers and 1 tsp spice mix. Cook for about 4 minutes, stirring with the tongs. Remove from the heat. Put in a bowl.

  • On the meat board, slice steak into strips. Heat remaining oil in the pan. Add the steak with the rest of the spice mix. Fry for 6-8 minutes, until cooked through. Put on a plate.

  • Put a tortilla on each plate and spread on a spoon of guacamole. Pile on the shredded lettuce, steak and peppers. Roll up and enjoy!
