This recipe, inspired by south-of-the-border flavors,  is a delicious twist on classic chicken salad. It’s got kick from the pickled jalapeños, crunch from the chopped veggies, and flavor from the cilantro and fresh lime. Serve the jalapeño chicken salad in the easy-to-make tortilla bowls or use it as a filling for wraps. The tortilla bowl isn’t as crisp and • Read More »

Chile-Rubbed Flatiron Steak with Chipotle-Red Pepper Sauce

May 23, 2009 | By andrea | Comments Off on Chile-Rubbed Flatiron Steak with Chipotle-Red Pepper Sauce | Filed in: Beef, Grilling/BBQ, Main Dish, Quick Cooking, Recipes.

Here’s a delicious, Mexi-inspired steak just in time for grilling season!  I can usually find flatiron steaks at Fred Meyer. New York strip steaks or rib-eyes would be a good substitute if you can’t find flatiron steaks (adjust the cooking time to the size of steak you use). Flatiron steaks are best cooked to medium-rare and sliced across the grain. • Read More »
