red bell pepper, halved
green bell pepper, halved
Old El Paso™ Taco Boats™ Soft Flour Tortillas
Make it FRESH toppings, if desired (see below)
Heat gas or charcoal grill. Sprinkle steak generously with seasoning on both sides; press into steak.
Place steak on direct heat of grill over medium heat; place vegetables (onion and bell peppers) on indirect heat of grill. Cover grill; cook 12 to 14 minutes for medium doneness. Remove from grill and let steak rest 10 minutes; cut into slices diagonally across the grain. Cut bell peppers into slices for serving.
Spoon grilled steak and vegetables into tortillas. Serve with desired toppings.
Flank steak is used in this recipe, but several other cuts of beef would work well. Both sirloin and top round would be delicious. Both can be purchased in 1-lb increments. Grill as directed in recipe, and let rest before slicing.
Make it FRESH toppings ideas: diced avocado, fresh lime wedges, sour cream or crema
