Carne Asada Burritos


1/2 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons canned chipotle peppers
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 large garlic clove
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 pound flank steak
Salt and ground black pepper
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes, drained
1 (4.5-ounce) can diced green chilies
4 large (burrito-size) flour tortillas
1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack
1 (15-ounce can) black beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup cooked rice
Guacamole, optional


In blender or food processor, combine orange juice, chipotle peppers, cumin, garlic and oil; puree until smooth. Place steak in zip-lock bag with orange-juice mixture; marinate in refrigerator at least 1 hour.

Preheat grill or broiler. Remove steak from marinade; pat dry. Season with salt and pepper. Grill meat until surface is browned on both sides, 5 to 8 minutes. Let rest 5 minutes. When cool enough to handle, cut steak into bite-size pieces.

In small bowl combine diced tomatoes and green chilies.

In large skillet over low heat, heat tortilla. Remove tortilla from skillet; top each tortilla with one-fourth of cheese, tomato mixture, beans and rice. Fold opposite end over toward center; roll up tortilla to create a tight burrito. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Serve with guacamole if desired.
