    Cook time: 15 mins

  • Ingredients

    • 4 Mission® Artisan® Corn & Whole Wheat Tortillas

    • 2 Garlic cloves, minced

    • ½ Jalapeño 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

  • Instructions

    • Combine garlic, jalapeño, 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.

    • Assemble tomatoes, cheese and lettuce leaves on a platter.

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • Meanwhile, coat preheated cast iron pan with non-stick spray. Add corn, red onion and poblano peppers; sauté 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.

    • Immediately place sliced steak on top of corn mixture in cast iron pan and serve sizzling hot.

  • Tips

    Substitute chicken in place of flank steak for a non-red meat variation.
    Drizzle your favorite salsa and sour cream if desired.
