Tacos are generally reserved for Taco Tuesday, I know. But, when something is as good as tacos, it should be celebrated at all times. The steak in this recipe is grilled slowly, keeping the heat low. It allows the meat to cook evenly without burning on the outside and still being raw on the inside. I do suggest a thicker steak for the best results here. Combined with a refreshing avocado cream sauce, the combination is awesome-sauce. Literally. I also decided to grill the tortillas. Something about grilled bread. I feel like it’s a must for any recipe that calls for bread, really. I’m not sure if you saw our Trader Joe’s Haul video, but one of the items I got was a chile lime seasoning. It was the first time I used it and I was pleasantly surprised with how much I liked it. It was a perfect balance of salt, citrus, and slight heat. Honestly, I wouldn’t even consider it spicy. I generously sprinkled both sides of the meat and let it marinate like that for the day. It provided a great combination to the cream sauce that also uses lime. Perfect summer flavor combination.
For the avocado cream sauce
- 1 Avocado
- Juice of 4 Limes
- 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
- 3 heaping spoonfuls of sour cream
- 1 handful (I opted for a smaller handful) of fresh cilantro
- 3-4 dashes of cumin
- salt and pepper to taste
For the Steak
- To make the avocado cream sauce, add all of the ingredients to your food processor of blender and combine. The sauce will be thick.
- To prepare the meat, season with the chile lime seasoning and allow to marinate in the fridge for the day. I usually prep this in the morning before I head out to work. Grill slowly on low heat. Cook until done to your preference. To grill the flour tortillas, place on a hot grill. Let coomk until they start to bubble and brown slightly. Flip and do the same for the other side. Remove from the heat and place on a plate. Cover the plate with a clean kitchen towel to keep them softer. You don't want them to get too hard so they'll break when you fold them.
- To prepare the tacos, slice the meat into thin slices. Spread some of the avocado sauce on one half of the folded tortilla. Add on some lettuce and top with the meat, tomatoes, and cheese. Add a couple more spoonfuls of the cream sauce and fold up the other side.
