       Title: Fakin' Fajitas
  Categories: Main dish, Low-fat
       Yield: 4 servings
       8 oz Seitan, cut into 3"-long                 Freshly ground black 
            Strips                                   To taste
       1    Red bell pepper, sliced             4    Fatfree tortillas
     1/2 md Onion, sliced                       4 T  Vegetable stock
       4    Garlic cloves, minced                    Salsa to taste
       4 T  Lime juice                          2 T  Cilantro, chopped
   Combine seitan strips, garlic, lime juice and pepper in a shallow bowl.
   Stir to coat, then refrigerate several hours, stirring occasionally.
   Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Wrap tortillas in foil and place in oven to
   warm while preparing fajitas. Heat a large heavy skillet. Add vegetable
   stock and saute seitan several minutes. Add pepper and onion strips and
   continue to saute until liquid has almost cooked away, about 5 minutes
   total. Cover pan and cook until pan is almost dry, about 2-3 minutes.
   Spoon 1/4 of seitan strips, peppers and onions down middle of each warmed
   tortilla. Drizzle with salsa and sprinkle cilantro over all. Roll up
   tortillas enclosing filling. Serve immediately. Serves 4.
