Ingredients

  • 2 heads romaine, chopped
  • 1 pound flank steak
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • extra chopped cilantro for serving
  • lime wedges for serving
  • tortillas for serving (optional)
  • For the dressing
  • 1/2 of an avocado
  • zest of ½ a lime
  • juice of 2 limes
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 cup packed cilantro
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Make the dressing. In a food processor or blender, combine the avocado, lime zest, lime juice, apple cider vinegar, garlic, cilantro, olive oil, and salt. Blend until creamy. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, combine the chili powder, cumin, onion powder, garlic powder, smoked paprika, and salt. Stir to combine. Rub entire mixture (it will seem like a lot) all over the flank steak, pressing to adhere.
  • Heat a large skillet (I used cast iron) over medium-high heat with one tablespoon of olive oil. Once hot, add the steak and sear for 3-5 minutes per side, depending on the thickness and how rare you like it. Once cooked to your liking, set aside to rest.
  • Add remaining tablespoon of olive oil. Add the peppers and onions and sauté for 5-6 minutes or until tender. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Once steak has rested, thinly slice against the grain.
  • To assemble the salads, top the romaine with the peppers and onions, slices of steak, the dressing, sliced avocado, extra chopped cilantro, lime wedges, and a couple warm tortillas. Enjoy!
