What’s for Dinner: Steak Tacos with Avacado cream sauce

Posted on December 18, 2010. Filed under: Food | Tags: , |

This is by far my husbands favorite clean eating meal.  Matter of fact he loved it so much that when we traveled to oregon to visit his family in June this was the meal he wanted me to make his father to show him how tasty eating right could be.  My father in law has a heart condition, is shaped like santa clause (and just as jolly) and a diabetic to boot.  He loved this meal even though my Mother in Law Gail looked at me weird when I put cinnamon in the seasoning…lol.  But I was right wasn’t I gail??  😀  Anyway this was our dinner last night.
3/4 lb lean round steak, thinly sliced into strips

Yummy! Love fresh cilantro!

1 tsp Mexican seasoning
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 clove garlic, minced
salt and pepper
cooking spray
8 corn tortillas
2 tomatoes, cored, seeded, and diced
1 red bell pepper, cored, seeded, and sliced
1 c torn green leaf or romaine lettuce
1/4 c fresh cilantro, minced
1 avocado, peeled and pitted
6oz nonfat greek style yogurt
1 jalapeno pepper, cored and seeded
1/4 c fresh cilantro, whole
1. Prepare avocado cream sauce. Add avocado, yogurt, jalapeno, and whole cilantro to a food processor. Pulse until well blended. Set aside.
2. In a large ziploc bag place steak, mexican seasoning, cumin, cinnamon, garlic, salt, and pepper. Seal bag and shake evenly to mix seasonings and coat steak.

3. Heat a large nonstick skillet or cast iron skillet over high heat for 1 minute. Reduce heat to medium high, mist skillet with cooking spray and saute steak, turning occasionally, for about 5 minutes for medium doneness (Steak will be slightly pink but not red in center).

4. To serve, lay out tortillas. Add steak, tomatoes, red pepper, and lettuce, dividing evenly among tortillas. Sprinkle with minced cilantro and top each with 2-3 tsp avocado cream sauce. If you have any leftover sauce store it in the fridge (sealed tightly) for up to 4 days. Could be used as a salad dressing.Notes:
