  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.
