  • 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 1/2-inch thick slices.

  • Meanwhile, coat preheated cast iron pan with non-stick spray. Add corn, red onion and poblano peppers; saute for 6 to 8 minutes or until corn has nice char marks and peppers are tender crisp. At the same time, coat Mission® Soft Taco Flour 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

Cook's Notes:

Substitute chicken in place of flank steak for a non-red meat variation.

Drizzle your favorite salsa and sour cream if desired.

These are not your typical fajita but they're really good! I did a full pound of flank steak and it made 8 fajitas. If you use minced garlic cloves there's no need for garlic powder. I used a full jalapeno. I really loved the corn onion pepper concoction! I doubled the amount of corn because I love corn. The pablano was super mild and I couldn't even really taste it on the fajitas at all. I think next time I'll try using a green bell pepper instead. Read More

The marinade is awesome - I thought it was going to be a not so nice flavor because the smell was putting me off BUT it was great. I let it soak in the marinade overnight (because by the time I started cooking it was late and I didn't know it even let it marinate lol) - it only calls for an hour to 4 hours however. The steak held its moisture well while cooking. (I cooked it on top of the stove by the way because I don't own a grill) Read More
