Wash produce before use


Prep and sear the steak

Heat the broiler, if using to char the bell peppers.
  • Cut a small corner from the steak packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a cutting board; pat dry with a paper towel. Cut the steak into 1-inch pieces and season with salt and pepper.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the steak and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned but not yet cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan.
While the steak cooks, prepare the onion and beans.


Make the steak-bean filling

  • Peel and coarsely chop enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
  • Rinse the pinto beans.
In the same pan used for the steak, if dry, add 1 to 2 tablespoons oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the enchilada base, beans, and ¼ cup [½ cup] water and cook until warmed through, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the steak and any accumulated juices and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes for medium. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the steak-bean filling cooks, prepare the cilantro and peppers.


Prep the cilantro; char and stuff the peppers

  • Coarsely chop the cilantro for garnish.
On the stovetop directly over a flame, or on a sheet pan under the broiler, roast the bell peppers, turning frequently, until blistered and charred all over, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board to cool slightly. Scrape off the charred skin; cut the peppers in half lengthwise and remove the ribs and seeds. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Stuff the peppers with the steak-bean filling.


Transfer the stuffed peppers to individual plates. Dollop with the guacamole, garnish with the cilantro, and serve.
