I disregared the second chili powder ingredient and added mushrooms to the recipe. Served with mashed potatoes and asparagus.

This turned out just great. The flank steak that I had was already cut into strips, so I just seared up those strips a little and adjusted the cook time. I was a bit confused by the chili powder ingredients. It was listed 2 times with 2 different amounts, so I put cumin in for the 1 teaspoon amount and 1 1/4 teaspoon of chili powder. Served over mashed potatoes
