  • 1 beef Flank Steak (about 1-1/2 pounds)
Six-Chile Spice Mix:
  • 2 tablespoons six-chile pepper mix
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons granulated garlic
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon hickory-smoked salt
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
Roasted Vegetables:
  • 1 pound new potatoes, halved
  • 8 ounces cremini mushrooms, halved
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 pound fresh asparagus, trimmed, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 bell peppers, diced, one green, one yellow
Southwest Tomato Cream:
  • 1/4 cup diced yellow onion
  • 1/2 cup beer
  • 1/4 cup mild tomatillo salsa
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons Six-Chile Spice Mix
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat dairy sour cream
  • Reduced-fat dairy sour cream, fresh lemon juice (optional)


  1. Mix ingredients for Six-Chile Spice Mix in small bowl. Add beef Flank Steak, 2 tablespoons Six Chile Spice Mix and red wine vinegar to food-safe plastic bag; turn to coat. Close bag securely and marinate 6 hours to overnight. Set aside remaining Spice Mix.

    Cook's Tip: You may add more Six-Chile Spice Mix to marinade for a spicier flavor, reserving at least 1-1/2 tablespoon for Southwest Tomato Cream.
  2. Preheat oven to 450°F. Place potatoes, mushrooms and 1 tablespoon oil in medium bowl; toss to combine. Place potato mixture on shallow-rimmed baking sheet. In same bowl, add asparagus and peppers and remaining 1 tablespoon oil; toss to combine. Place asparagus mixture on separate shallow-rimmed baking sheet. Season both baking sheets with salt and pepper, as desired. Roast in 450°F oven 30 to 35 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, prepare Southwest Tomato Cream. Heat medium nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add onion; cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add beer, salsa, tomato paste and 1-1/2 tablespoons Six-Chile Spice Mix. Bring to a boil and simmer 15 minutes. Remove from heat. Gently whisk in sour cream. Keep warm.

    Cook's Tip: You may add more Six-Chile Spice Mix to Southwest Tomato Cream for spicier flavor.
  4. Remove steak from marinade; discard marinade. Place steak on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 16 to 20 minutes for medium rare (145°F), turning occasionally. Carve steak into thin slices; serve with Roasted Vegetables and Tomato Cream.
