Instructions

  1. In a medium stainless steel or glass bowl, combine lime juice, oil, garlic, chili powder, cumin and salt; add steak and rub mixture into meat with your hands. Cover bowl; refrigerate at least 6 hours or overnight.
  2. Preheat grill to medium.
  3. Place onions and peppers in a grill basket; off heat, coat with cooking spray. Season to taste with salt and pepper and grill, shaking pan occasionally, until tender, about 10 to 12 minutes.
  4. At same time, grill steak, flipping once, about 16 to 20 minutes for medium doneness; allow meat to rest for 10 minutes.*
  5. To serve, thinly slice steak across the grain. Divide steak and vegetables among tortillas; top each with a tablespoon of guacamole and sour cream. Sprinkle wraps with cilantro; roll up and serve. Yields 1 wrap per serving.

Notes

*Be careful not to overcook the steak. Flank steak can get tough if cooked too long. Alternately, you can stir-fry the onions and peppers on the stove.
