In large bowl, toss together steak, lime juice, vinegar, cumin, chili powder, oregano, paprika and 1/2 tsp (2 mL) each of the salt and pepper; let stand for 5 minutes.

In large cast-iron or nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; fry steak, in batches, until browned but still pink inside, 3 to 5 minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer to plate.

Add onion, green and red peppers, and remaining salt and pepper to pan; cook over medium heat until tender, about 7 minutes. Stir in corn and heat through.

Divide steak and vegetables among tortillas; top with lettuce, tomato and cheese. Fold in half.
