1 12 -ounce jar sliced pickled jalapenos, drained
1 1 3/4 -pound flank steak,trimmed
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup chopped white onion
1/2 cup fresh cilantro
Lime wedges, for serving
2 -4 tablespoons Salsa (homemade or store-bought)
Corn tortillas (homemade or store-bought)

Make tortillas, if you're using Homemade Tortillas

Marinate the steak: Spread the jalapenos in a baking dish and press the steak on top. Cover and set aside at room temperature, about 1 hour.

Preheat a grill or grill pan to high. Brush the jalapenos off the steak, pat dry and season with salt and pepper. Grill the steak for 4 to 6 minutes per side for medium-rare. Let rest 10 minutes, then slice.

Assemble the tacos: For each taco, stack 2 tortillas and lay a few pieces of steak in the middle. Top with onion, salsa and cilantro. Top with lime wedges.
