Tex-Mex Flank Steak and Vegetables
Chipotle salsa - both a key ingredient in the marinade and a condiment for the meat and vegetables - has a smokier, more full-bodied flavor than regular tomato salsa. Marinating the vegetables in a zip-top plastic bag eliminates cleanup - you can just throw the bag away. Because the steak has to marinate from four hours to overnight in order to tenderize and absorb flavor, you'll need to start this recipe ahead of time.
