Notes

* Sante Fe marinade is made with hot peppers, tequila, soy sauce, lime juice, minced garlic, and shallots

 

 

 

Ingredients

  • 1 Pound skirt or flank steak
  • 1/4 Cup Santa Fe marinade*
  • 2 Cups shredded iceberg or romaine lettuce
  • 1/2 medium red onion, very thinly sliced
  • 1 Cup frozen yellow corn kernels, thawed
  • 1 ripe avocado, pitted and diced
  • 1/4 Cup thick and chunky salsa
  • 6 tortillas

Directions

Place the steak and marinade in a non-metal shallow dish. Refrigerate several hours or overnight. Remove from fridge 30 to 40 minutes before cooking. 

Prepare a grill. Place steak on hottest part of grill. Cook each side evenly, rotating to make grill marks until desired doneness (do not overcook). Let rest as you prepare salad. 

On a large platter or individual plates, layer lettuce, red onion, corn, and avocado. Slice steak thinly on the diagonal and arrange over salad. Top with salsa and serve with warm tortillas.

Grill Shopping Tip

Think twice before buying a thicker piece of meat; a 2-inch thick steak takes four times (not twice) as long as 1-inch thick steak to cook.

Grill Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
