Ingredients

Tex-Mex Chili Rub:
Peppers and Onions:

Directions

For the Tex-Mex chili rub: Mix together the paprika, brown sugar, chili powder, cumin, chipotle chile powder, garlic powder and 1 teaspoon salt in a small bowl. Toss the skirt steak in a container with the olive oil and lime juice, then rub with the spice mixture. Refrigerate, covered, for at least 30 minutes and up to 2 hours before cooking.

For the peppers and onions: Heat a cast-iron pan over medium-high heat until hot. Toss the peppers and onions in a bowl with the olive oil, lime juice and 1 teaspoon salt. Add the pepper-onion mixture to the hot pan and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender and the edges are charred, 8 to 10 minutes. Set aside.

Prepare a grill for medium-high heat and brush the grill grates with oil.

Grill the skirt steak until marked, 4 to 5 minutes per side for the thicker pieces for medium rare, or 2 to 3 minutes per side for the thinner pieces for medium rare. Transfer to a cutting board and thinly slice.

Serve with the warm tortillas and toppings.
