  • garlic cloves, minced (or pressed through a garlic press) 
  • flank steak, fat trimmed 
  • 3 cups vertically sliced onion (about 2 medium onions) 
  • 2 cups red and yellow bell pepper strips (about 2 large peppers) 
  • 2  jalapeño peppers (or 1 serrano pepper), halved lengthwise and thinly sliced, with seeds
  • 1 tbsp Cayenne Pepper
    • 2  ripe avocados, peeled and seeded 
    • 1  garlic clove, minced (or pressed through a garlic press) 
    • 2 teaspoons  fresh lime juice

    Rub steak with garlic & olive oil mixture, place in a large zip-top plastic bag. Seal & marinate in the refrigerator 1 hour (or overnight).  

    Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, bell pepper, and jalapeño, sauté 5 minutes & keep warm.

    Place the steak on the grill, and cook 4 minutes on each side (without turning) for medium. Let stand 10 minutes on a cutting board before slicing crosswise into 1/3-inch-thick slices.

    To prepare guacamole, combine all ingredients in a small bowl, and mix well, mashing with a pestle or fork until mixture is chunky.

    Heat the tortillas & place a small amount of meat in each tortilla, top with the onion-pepper mixture and guacamole & enjoy!
