DIRECTIONS

  1. Make marinade: In a large bowl or resealable plastic bag, combine minced garlic, salt, lime juice, finley diced jalapeno, cumin and olive oil; whisk together. Add steak and toss to coat well. Marinate, refrigerated at least 1 hour, preferably over night for the flavors to blend.
  2. Heat oven to 350° F. Wrap tortillas in foil; place in oven to warm 15 minutes before serving.
  3. Remove steak from marinade; discard marinade. Grill 5 inches over hot coals (or over medium-high heat) 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium-rare; set aside.
  4. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat canola oil. Cook sliced bell peppers and onion for about 5 minutes, until vegetables are softened.
  5. Slice steak thinly across the grain.
  6. To assemble fajitas, spread tortillas with salsa, top with steak slices and vegetable mixture, sour cream, and chopped cilantro. Fold over and serve.
