Rub tequila lime seasoning on steak and brush with oil. Grill steak 5 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Let meat rest 5 minutes.

While steak rests, heat a large nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil to pan. Add onion and bell peppers; sauté 5 minutes or until tender. Season with salt and pepper.

Thinly slice steak across the grain. Lay 5 tortillas on a flat work surface. Divide 1-1/2 cups cheese evenly among tortillas. Divide steak and jalapeno among tortillas. Top evenly with onion and bell pepper mixture and remaining 1/4 cup cheese. Top with remaining tortillas.
