Test Kitchen Tips

Hanger steak is a cut that hangs between the rib and loin on the underside of the steer. If you can’t find it, substitute with skirt or flank steak.

To grill tortillas, reduce the grill heat to low and brush grill grates with oil. Grill tortillas, uncovered, 1–2 minutes per side.


Preheat grill to medium or oven to 450°.

Prepare one foil packet by placing two sheets of heavy-duty foil (each 24-inches long) on top of one another; coat with nonstick spray.

Combine cumin, chili powder, salt, pepper, coriander, and oregano in a bowl; toss with steak to coat.

Stir in poblanos, onion, pinto beans, jalapeño, oil, and garlic; toss to coat with seasonings.

Place fajita mixture in center of one side of prepared foil strip. Pull foil over top, then fold in sides tightly crimping to seal; transfer to grill or oven.

Grill or bake packet 15 minutes; remove from grill and open carefully.

Toss fajita mixture with cilantro and lime juice; serve with tortillas, queso fresco, and crema.
