Tex-Mex Cheesesteak Sandwiches

We adore cheesesteak sandwiches and anything with southwestern flavor, so I combined the two. If you crave even more firepower, add chopped jalapenos. —Joan Hallford, Fort Worth, Texas

    Excellent recipe and so tasty. My only concern was that I couldn't get four sandwiches out of the beef tips and gray. This was my first time buying that (I bought it specifically for this recipe) and I must say I thought it was terribly expensive for the small amount of meat and gravy in the package. Thus, I only made three sandwiches, but they were indeed delicious. I also couldn't find a banana pepper, so I bought a jar of the banana pepper rings and sautéed those along with the onions. That worked fine.
