  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 2 poblano chilies, stemmed, seeded, sliced
  • 12 ounces white potatoes, quartered lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 1/4-inch thick slices
  • 1 (12-ounce) flank steak

  • Chopped fresh cilantro

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in same skillet over medium-high heat. Add potatoes and sauté until golden brown and tender, about 12 minutes. Return onion mixture to skillet with potatoes and keep warm.

Meanwhile, sprinkle both sides of steak generously with garlic powder, chili powder, salt and pepper. Heat remaining 1/2 tablespoon oil in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Add steak and cook until browned on both sides, turning once, about 8 minutes total for medium-rare. Transfer steak to cutting board; let rest 5 minutes.

While steak rests, heat tortillas on griddle or over gas flame until warm, turning frequently with tongs.
