  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • Veggies:

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 red bell pepper, ribs and seeds removed, sliced 1/4 inch thick

  • 1 yellow or orange bell pepper, ribs and seeds removed, sliced 1/4 inch thick

  • 1/2 red onion, sliced crosswise

  • 3 cloves garlic, sliced

Instructions

  1. To make the seasoning: Combine chili powder, cumin, salt, garlic powder, and black pepper in a small bowl. Season the steak pieces on both sides.

  2. To make the veggies: Add olive oil to a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Toss in peppers, onions and garlic, and saute until just soft, about 5 minutes. Remove from pan and cool to room temperature.

  3. To make the sauce: Heat grill to medium-high heat. Drizzle tomatoes, onions and jalapeño with olive oil. Grill for 5 to 7 minutes until lightly charred on both sides. Remove and cool. Add to blender along with 1 clove of garlic and salt. Blend until smooth.

  4. To grill and assemble: Heat grill to medium-high heat.

  5. Add cooled pepper and onion mixture to one end of steak strips and roll up. Secure with toothpicks. Grill steak rolls over direct heat for 6 to 8 minutes, rotating on all sides, until cooked to desired temperature.

  6. Plate with limes and roja sauce drizzled on top. Sprinkle with cilantro.
