The peppers and steak can also be cooked in a frying pan, making sure it’s really hot before you start. COOK’S TIP Tajin is a classic Mexican seasoning made with ground chillies and citrus. It has a fruity, tangy chilli avour and is great for marinating beef, chicken and pork. You can even sprinkle it over grilled pineapple.
