Recipe Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup LA VICTORIA® SUPREMA® Salsa
  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 2 tbsp tequila
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 lb Skirt Steak
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeds and top removed and cut into 6 large strips
  • 1 yellow bell pepper or orange bell pepper, seeds and top removed and cut into 6 large strips
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 12 green onions, cleaned and left whole
  • 12 (6-inch) corn or flour tortillas
  • LA VICTORIA® Nacho Sliced Jalapeños
  • For Tomatillo-Avocado Crema:
  • 1 cup LA VICTORIA® Green Taco Sauce
  • 1 avocado, pit removed and peeled
  • 1/4 cup sour cream or crème fraiche

Cooking Directions

  1. To make the marinade, combine the LA VICTORIA® SUPREMA® Salsa, lime juice, tequila, garlic, oregano and cumin in a mixing bowl.
  2. Place the skirt steak in a resealable plastic bag and add the marinade. Seal the bag and toss to coat well.
  3. Refrigerate the steak for at least 30 minutes and up to overnight.
  4. Make the Tomatillo-Avocado Crema by combining the LA VICTORIA® Green Taco Sauce, avocado and sour cream in a food processor. Blend until smooth.
  5. To prepare, preheat the grill to high.
  6. Remove the steak from the marinade and discard the marinade. Pat the steak dry, then season with salt and pepper. Grill the steak turning once, about 6 to 8 minutes total for medium-rare.
  7. Transfer the steak to a cutting board and let stand for 5 minutes before slicing diagonally into thin slices.
  8. Meanwhile, toss the colored bell peppers with the olive oil and grill until charred and wilted. During the last 30-seconds of cooking, place the green onions on the grill and char, turning often.
  9. While the steak is resting, warm the tortillas directly on the grill, turning once until slightly puffed and browned in spots, about 1 minute total. Serve the steak with the warm tortillas, grilled peppers and Tomatillo-Avocado Crema (and LA VICTORIA® Nacho Sliced Jalapeños if you like it hot!).
