Steak Tacos

Here’s a super quick meal that everyone currently loves in my house.  At this point, I omit the pepper from the Guacamole recipe so my kids will eat it and I put spices in the onions I sauté.  The most time consuming part of this recipe is the Guacamole but it’s totally worth it and you’ll find it takes less time the more often you make it.


1 pound, fillet of New York Steak (you can use any cut you like!)
1 package white corn tortillas
1 medium onion
cumin, 1 tsp.
cayenne, dash
chili pepper, dash
smoked paprika, dash
big handful of fresh spinach
Salsa (I love San Juan Salsa or Trader Joe’s)

Wrap a pack of corn tortillas in foil and put them in the oven on 250 degrees until warmed through (about 15 minutes).

Season a one pound fillet of New York Steak with a little salt and pepper and bring it to room temp. Make the guacamole.

See Guacamole post for my favorite recipe.

Preheat the grill pan and lid.

Sautèe an onion in canola oil until golden. Add cumin, cayenne, chili pepper and smoked paprika and stir until combined.

Grill steak for 3 minutes each side.  Let it rest, then thinly slice it.

I julienne fresh spinach to garnish.  In my opinion, tacos need a dark green!

Top with your favorite salsa!
