Seal and let sit for approximately 1 hour to combine the flavors.  Grill the meat until the internal temperature reaches 165F to ensure it is cooked completely and safe to eat.

Top with the tomato mixture while the meat is still hot.  This will help the cheese to melt and heat up the vegetables.  Serve with brown rice or garlic bread or side salad.
