Skip the tortilla for this wholesome take on steak fajitas. Flank steak takes on the flavors of a bright, pineapple-spice marinade. It’s grilled (or seared) and served with sautéed fajitas veggies, plus a garlic, lime, and cilantro rice. Add corn, salsa, guacamole, and Cotija cheese—plus a squeeze of lime—and you’re ready for a healthy fiesta.
