steak fajitas

These were smokey and delicious.  Definitely something I'll make again.

steak fajitas (Tyler Florence from food network)
1 orange, juiced
2 limes, juiced
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
3 chipotle chiles, in adobo sauce
3 tablespoons roughly chopped cilantro leaves
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon salt
2 1/4 pounds flank steak (I bought mine already thinly sliced)

other ingredients:
2 bell peppers, thinly sliced
1 large onion, thinly sliced
tortillas, warmed on the gas stove (use thongs to flip them on the fire)
sour cream, guacamole, salsa

Put all the marinade ingredients into a blender and puree until smooth.  Transfer to a re-sealable plastic bag and add the steak, seal and shake to coat.  Refrigerate for 2-4 hours to tenderize and flavor the beef.
Preheat a ridged grill pan on high heat (I used a regular pan).
Drain the marinade from the beef.  Season with salt and pepper.  Grill until done.  Remove from heat and keep warm.  Add the bell peppers and onions to the pan and grill for 7-8 minutes until the vegetables are just barely limp.  While the peppers and onions are cooking heat the tortillas.  Place a tortilla on each flame and let it char for a few seconds then flip over.
Add steak to the vegetables and serve inside tortillas with sour cream, guacamole and salsa.
