  • 1 lb. flank steak
  • 1⁄4 cup lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp. orange juice
  • 3 Tbsp. canola oil

  • 1 medium yellow bell pepper, seeded and sliced
  • 1 large onion, peeled and sliced
  • 6 flour tortillas (8 inches)

  • Place flank steak in large zipper-lock bag. In small bowl, combine lime and orange juices, oil, jalapeño pepper, cumin, and coriander and mix well. Pour over flank steak, seal bag, and turn several times to coat. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.

Grill for 5 to 8 minutes, until softened and slightly charred. Wrap stacked flour tortillas in foil and place on grill for final 2 to 3 minutes of cooking time.
