A note about serious food allergies

Give your fork and knife the night off with these irresistible handhelds made with tender flat-iron steak. We start with our signature, fresh-from-the-tortilleria corn tortillas and stuff them with medium-rare steak; a zesty, crunchy cilantro and lime slaw; and a dollop of cooling chipotle-spiked crema. The result is restaurant quality, but enjoyed in the comfort of your favorite easy chair.
