2 large tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1/2 cup diced red onion
1/4 cup lime juice
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
3 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
2 teaspoons ground cumin, divided
3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
1 beef flank steak (about 1-1/2 pounds)
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 large onion, halved and sliced
6 whole wheat tortillas (8 inches), warmed
Optional: Sliced avocado and lime wedges
For salsa, place first 5 ingredients in a small bowl; stir in 1 teaspoon cumin and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Let stand until serving.
Sprinkle steak with the remaining cumin and salt. Grill, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from heat until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°), 6-8 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; saute onion until crisp-tender. Slice steak thinly across the grain; serve in tortillas with onion and salsa. If desired, serve with avocado and lime wedges.
