Ancho Chile-Rubbed Steak with Corn Salsa: Sprinkle steaks with chile powder, cumin, salt, and pepper. Cook steaks, in 2 batches, in 1 Tbsp hot oil per batch in a large nonstick skillet 4 to 5 minutes per side or to desired doneness; remove from skillet. Sauté corn and garlic in 1 Tbsp hot oil 4 to 5 minutes or until
browned. Stir in salsa; cook until thoroughly heated. Thinly slice steak against the grain. Serve corn salsa over steak; sprinkle with
cilantro. Note: Serve with lime wedges, if on hand.
