Ingredients

4 Mission® Artisan® Corn & Whole Wheat Tortillas

2 Garlic cloves, minced

½ Jalapeno pepper, minced

½ tsp. Ground cumin

¼ cup Cilantro, chopped

2 Limes, juiced

1 tsp. Sugar

2 tbsp. Olive oil

1 (12 oz.) Flank steak

½ cup Heirloom tomatoes, cut into large chunks

1 tbsp. Cotija cheese, crumbled

4 each Bibb lettuce leaves

Salt and pepper as needed

1 cup Corn, fresh cut from cob or frozen sweet corn kernels

½ cup Red onion, diced

1 Poblano pepper, cut into strips

Directions

  1. 1. Combine garlic, jalapeno, cumin, cilantro, lime juice, sugar and oil in a mixing bowl. Whisk until well combined and transfer to a plastic gallon-size zip top bag, add flank steak and marinate under refrigeration for 1 to 4 hours. 2. Assemble tomatoes, cheese and lettuce leaves on a platter. 3. Preheat grill to medium-high heat and place 8-inch cast iron pan directly on the grill or over side burner set to medium-high heat. 4. Remove steak from marinade, pat dry and season with salt and pepper as desired. Grill steak for 6 to 8 minutes per side or to desired doneness. Remove and allow steak to rest 5 minutes before slicing into ½-inch thick slices. 5. Meanwhile, coat preheated cast iron pan with non-stick spray. Add corn, red onion and poblano peppers; saute for 6 to 8 minutes or until corn has nice char marks and peppers are tender crisp. At the same time, coat Mission® Artisan® Corn & Whole Wheat Tortillas with non-stick spray and grill on each side no more than 30 seconds. 6. Immediately place sliced steak on top of corn mixture in cast iron pan and serve sizzling hot.
