Carne Asada Burrito

Carne Asada Burrito

Flank steak marinated in a spicy chili sauce makes the most excellent burritos. You can easily adjust the spices by adding more, or less, chilis and, after marinating overnight, all that's left to do is toss the steak on the grill. The sky's the limit on the toppings for this easy weeknight dinner.
