Steak Tacos with Lime Mayo

While you may be tempted to leave off some parts of these tacos, trust me, every items builds on the other for a really great twist on classic tacos.


2 red bell peppers, sliced thin
Olive oil
2 teaspoons ground chipotle chile pepper
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon kosher salt
2-1lb. flank steak
6 Tablespoons mayonnaise
2 teaspoons grated lime rind
2 Tablespoons lime juice
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 teaspoons water
10-6″ corn tortillas
1 cup refrigerated fresh salsa
1 cup shredded queso fresco

Toss the red peppers in a grill basket with some olive oil.  Combine chipotle powder, paprika, and salt; rub spice mixture evenly over steak.  Over medium heat of a grill, add the basket of peppers and flank steak.  Grill the steak 8 minutes a side, and the peppers an additional 5 minutes.  Remove the steak and let rest for 5 minutes.  Thinly slice the steak against the grain.  Combine mayonnaise, lime rind, lime juice, garlic, and water, whisking well.  Working with 1 tortilla at a time, heat tortillas over medium heat directly on the burner of the stove for about 15 seconds a side.  Place steak on a tortilla, add some red pepper, salsa, cheese, and mayonnaise.

Serves: 6-8
