Ranchero Grilled Steak Wraps Recipe

Flat iron steak is a lean cut of beef so take care not to overcook it. The ancho chili-mayonnaise sauce give the meat a nice smoky flavor. —Patricia Harmon, Baden, Pennsylvania
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Grill: 10 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 dried ancho chilies
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 3/4 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 beef flat iron steak or top sirloin steak (1 pound)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 fat-free flour tortillas (8 inches), warmed
  • 1 medium ripe avocado, peeled and diced
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded reduced-fat Mexican cheese blend
  • 1 cup torn romaine
  • 1/2 cup chopped tomatoes

Directions

  • 1. Place chilies in a small bowl. Cover with boiling water; let stand for 5 minutes. Drain. Remove the stems, seeds and skins. Finely chop and place in a small bowl. Stir in the mayonnaise, cilantro, lime juice, garlic and honey; set aside.
