  • Combine beef tri-tip, Anaheim chile peppers, onion, red bell pepper, green bell pepper, juice of 1 lime, olive oil, garlic, red pepper flakes, 1 teaspoon cumin, 1 teaspoon ground chipotle pepper, smoked paprika, and Mexican oregano in a large bowl; season with salt and black pepper and toss to combine. Cover and refrigerate beef mixture for at least 4 hours.

  • Preheat oven to 500 degrees F (260 degrees C).

  • Heat a large pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add beef mixture and cook, stirring constantly, until onions soften and become golden and beef browns, 15 to 20 minutes. Stir in 1 cup chopped cilantro and jalapeno peppers.

  • Spread each hoagie bun with 2 tablespoons chipotle mayonnaise. Spoon beef mixture into buns and top each sandwich with 2 ounces Asiago cheese.

  • Place sandwiches on a baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted and bread is toasted and warm, about 5 minutes. Divide fresh avocado, cherry tomatoes, and 1/2 cup cilantro over the 4 sandwiches.

The only part of this recipe that I can honestly rate is the mayo spread for the sandwich which was awesome. I had the meat and was just looking for a quick recipe for dinner so I didn't marinate my meat but I bet that is a nice addition. I got my mayo/garlic-basil mixed together; I put the meat on the grill and watched it closely (it's very thin and cooks fast) then I just put together my sandwiches just like the recipe and dinner was done in a flash!! The flavors were so good together!! Read More
