Ingredients

  • 1½ lb. flank steak, sliced into thin strips
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded and sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and sliced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, seeded and sliced
  • 1 large red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 T. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 T. ground cumin
  • 2 t. chili powder
  • ½ t. cayenne pepper
  • 1 t. red pepper flakes
  • ½ c. fresh cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
  • 1 large lime, ½ sliced and ½ juiced
  • 1 large avocado, diced
  • 6 Corn tortillas
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

Instructions

    1. Preheat oven to 400°F and line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat baking mat. Set aside.
    2. In a large mixing bowl, combine sliced flank steak, peppers, red onion, olive oil, cumin, chili powder, cayenne, and red pepper flakes. Generously season with salt and pepper, to taste, and mix until everything is well coated.
    3. Spread the steak and pepper mixture onto the prepared baking sheet and roast in a preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the steak reaches the desired level of doneness and the peppers are soft and slightly caramelized. 
    4. Remove the sheet pan from the oven and sprinkle with fresh cilantro and a squeeze of fresh lime juice.
    5. Serve immediately with diced avocado and corn tortillas. Enjoy!

Notes

For a low-carb option, serve with large lettuce leaves instead of corn tortillas.

For best results, use a three-quarter-sized sheet pan for this recipe versus the more common 13” x 18” half-sheet pan. This will allow extra room to spread the vegetables out into a single layer without overcrowding while roasting.
