Directions
Watch how to make this recipe.
  • Heat grill to high.

  • Wrap tortillas in aluminum foil and on the top rack of the grill while the steak is grilling.

  • Heat grill pan over high heat. Brush steak with oil and season with salt and pepper on both sides. Grill on one side until golden brown and slightly charred, about 3 to 4 minutes. Turn the steak over and cook to medium-rare doneness, about 3 to 4 minutes longer. Let rest 5 minutes then slice against the grain into 1/4-inch thick slices.

  • Fill each tortilla with some lettuce, 3 to 4 pieces of meat, onion, grilled tomato salsa, sour cream, and avocado.

Grilled Tomato Salsa:
  • Heat grill to high.

  • Heat oil in a small saute pan and saute the chiles, onion, and garlic until soft.

  • Brush tomatoes with oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill on both sides until slightly charred and soft.

  • Transfer tomatoes and serrano mixture to a food processor; add the lime juice and salt and pepper and process until smooth. Add the cilantro and pulse a few times (there should be flecks of cilantro in the salsa.) Transfer to a bowl.
