From the American Diabetes Association, with doubling the meat to correct what I am betting was an error in the posted recipe. (Protein and cholesterol were off by about 50%.) Additionally, meat selection for the analyzer was a round raw cut because the flank steak, amongst many other generics in the DB, have incomplete information (no cholesterol). Calories for the substitution of top round in this recipe were right on for calories, under for fat, and a little over for cholesterol and protein when compared to the ADA reportings. flank steak, canola oil, green bell peppers, onion, water, chili powder, cayenne pepper, cumin, salt, black pepper, 6-inch flour or corn tortillas cvt
