DIRECTIONS

  • Make the guacamole: scoop the avocado flesh into a bowl; add the remaining guacamole ingredients; stir with a fork until combined.
  • Cover with plastic wrap to prevent browning.
  • Make the rub: in a small bowl, combine all the rub ingredients.
  • Lightly brush or spray the flank steak on both sides with oil; season steak evenly with the rub.
  • Let steak stand at room temperature for 20-30 minutes before grilling.
  • Lightly brush or spray the onion and bell peppers on both sides with oil.
  • Grill over direct medium heat until tender, turning once; the onion will take 8-10 minutes and the bell peppers will take 6-8 minutes.
  • Cut the onion and bell peppers into bite-sized pieces.
  • Grill the flank steak over direct high heat until cooked to desired doneness, 8-10 minutes for medium-rare, turning once.
  • Remove from grill and let rest 3-5 minutes.
  • Wrap the tortillas in a foil package; grill the package over direct medium heat to warm the tortillas, 2-3 minutes, turning once.
  • To serve: cut the flank steak against the grain into ¼ inch slices.
  • Place the warm tortillas, sliced, meat, onions, peppers, and guacamole in separate serving dishes.
  • Let each person make their own fajita by placing the fillings down the center of each tortilla and adding Tabasco to taste; wrap and serve warm.
