Canned chipotles in adobo sauce give a wonderful smoky heat to these fajitas. They serve double duty here: The chiles are added to the peppers and onions, and the delicious adobo sauce is stirred into the yogurt topping. Want to skip the tortillas? Serve in large lettuce leaves instead.


Cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Uncooked lean and trimmed beef flank steak

1 pound(s)

Adobo seasoning

1½ tsp(s), divided

  1. Rub steak with 1 tsp adobo seasoning. Spray a large nonstick skillet with nonstick spray and heat over medium-high. Add steak to skillet and cook until instant-read thermometer inserted into side of steak registers 135 degrees F for medium-rare, about 5 minutes on each side. Cover to keep warm.
  2. Wipe out skillet if needed. Coat skillet with nonstick spray and heat over medium-high. Add onion and bell pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Stir in remaining 1/2 tsp adobo seasoning, cilantro, chipotles and cumin.
  3. Slice steak across grain into 12 slices. In a small bowl, combine yogurt and adobo sauce. For each fajita, place 3 slices of steak on a warm tortilla and top with 1/2 cup peppers and onions, 1 tbsp salsa verde, and 1 tbsp yogurt. Roll up tortillas.
