A Mexican favorite with a summery twist. Serve with light sangria for a fabulous, festive meal.


  2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  1 1/2 tsp vegetable oil
  2 clove(s) (medium) garlic clove(s), peeled and crushed
  2 tsp chili powder
  2 tsp ground cumin
  1/2 tsp table salt
  1 pound(s) uncooked lean flank steak
  1 large uncooked onion(s), thinly sliced
  1 medium sweet red pepper(s), seeded and thinly sliced
  2 spray(s) cooking spray
  1/8 tsp table salt, or to taste, for seasoning vegetables
  1/8 tsp black pepper, or to taste, for seasoning vegetables
  4 medium whole wheat tortilla(s)
  1/4 cup(s) reduced-fat sour cream
  1/4 cup(s) guacamole
  2 Tbsp cilantro, fresh, chopped (optional)


  • 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.
  • Preheat grill to medium.
  • 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.
  • At same time, grill steak, flipping once, about 16 to 20 minutes for medium doneness; allow meat to rest for 10 minutes.*
  • 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.


  • * Flank steak tastes best served pink in the middle; if cooked too long, it can get tough.

    ** Alternately, you can stir-fry the onions and peppers on the stove.
