  • 1 1/2 pounds sirloin steak 1-inch thick
  • 4.5 ounces Old El Paso Chopped Green Chiles
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 2 limes 1 zested
  • 1 cup chopped green onions
  • 1 cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 avocados
  • cup crumbled queso fresco
  • 10 Old El Paso Flour Tortillas 1 package
  • Salt and pepper


  • Place the steak in a baking dish and top with Old El Paso chopped green chiles, garlic, the zest of one lime, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Rub the mixture over the steak on all sides and set aside.
  • Preheat the grill to high. Allow the steak to marinate in the green chile relish, while you chop and prepare the remaining ingredients.
  • Lift the steak out of the green chile relish and place it on the hot grill. Sear for 3-4 minutes per side. Take the steak off the grill and tent it with foil to keep warm. Then sauté the remaining green chile relish in a small skillet until slightly charred, 5-8 minutes on medium-high. Scoop it out of the skillet and place the charred green chile relish on top of the steak.
  • Slice the limes into wedges. Then place the tortillas on a microwave-safe plate and cover them with a damp paper towel. Heat for 45-60 seconds to warm through. Slice the steak into thin strips, against the grain.

To serve:

  • Place several slices of steak with relish on each warm tortilla, then top with chopped green onions, cilantro, sliced avocado, and crumbled queso fresco. Serve with lime wedges.
