We love Mexican food, and this is an absolute favorite. I have also made it with grilled chicken breasts instead of steak, my family loves this too. It can be made indoors using a grill pan, broiler in the oven or a George Foreman grill!!!

    Put the cumin, chili pwdr., garlic pwdr., salt and pepper in small bowl and mix well. Rub both sides of the steak with this mixture. Grill the steak 4-6 inches from medium heat or coals. Cook the steak 10 - 15 minutes or until desired doneness, turning once.

    Using a foil pouch, put the onions and peppers inside and toss with the oil (or spray first with cooking spray). Place on grill when it is ready. When you turn the steak, check your veggies. Cook them as long as the steak or longer, depending how crispy or tender you want them. If you want them very tender, I put an ice cube in the foil pouch to help cook more tender!
