Recipe Ingredients

  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon sweet paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ pound flank steak
  • 1 cup cooked white rice
  • 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup chopped romaine lettuce
  • 1 cup tortilla chips
  • ½ cup canned black beans
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges
  • ¼ cup crumbled cotija cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 avocados, peeled and pitted
  • 1 cup water
  • ½ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 pinch salt

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat a grill pan or skillet over medium-high heat until just barely smoking.
  2. 2 Combine garlic powder, chili powder, kosher salt, paprika, and cumin in a bowl; rub over all sides of flank steak.
  3. 3 Grill flank steak in the preheated grill pan, flipping halfway through, until browned and cooked to desired doneness, about 8 minutes. Let steak rest on a work surface for 10 minutes. Thinly slice steak against the grain.
