I love Tex-Mex food.
I will confess, my at-home Tex-Mex does not taste like what you find in a restaurant, but it does taste good. It's probably because I don't douse everything in oil and sour cream (not that there's anything wrong with that, my way is just *different*).
The salsa I made, which you can find here, made the meal. I might, however, ramp up the cilantro next go round. Cilantro is one of my favorite herbs.
The tequila-lime marinade I used did not really float my boat, so I won't post it, but I will say that the steak that was simply salted and peppered before hitting the skillet for a brief sear was a win. The salsa, fresh veggies and good corn tortillas complemented that simplicity well. I would have keeled over from joy if we had grilled the steak, but our grill is currently out of reach.
Give that, here's what you need:
3-6 tortillas per person (some people seem to like to double up the tortillas; I like corn tortillas)
1/4-1/2 lb lean steak
1 red bell pepper
1 green bell pepper
1/2 sliced onion
1/4 c chopped white onion
1/4 c chopped cilantro
Sear steak. Let rest before slicing.
Grill/saute sliced onions and peppers while steak rests
Layer steak slices, veggies, chopped raw onion, chopped cilantro, salsa and avocado.
So easy even an exhausted teacher can make it.
