Grilled Steak Tacos

I found this recipe on our blog friend & Girls Grill follower Lynn's blog. Sounds DELISH, so yall dust off the ole grill this weekend and get to cooking. Be sure and share your fabulous recipes with us!


What you need..
1/2 cup cola
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Juice of 2 limes, plus lime wedges for serving
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 pound skirt steak, cut into 4 portions
2 tomatoes, finely chopped (I substituted with 2 cans of rotel, drained)
1 small onion, chopped
1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro
2 jalapeƱo chiles, finely chopped
8 crisp taco shells (I used a mix of soft corn and flour tortillas, it's what we had on hand.)
2 cups shredded slaw mix (from a 1-pound bag)
1 avocado, cut into 8 lengthwise slices

What you will do...
In a resealable plastic bag, combine the cola, olive oil, 2 tablespoons lime juice, the chili powder and 1 1/2 teaspoons salt. Add the steak and let marinate at room temperature for about 30 minutes.In a large bowl, toss together the tomatoes, onion, cilantro, jalapeƱos and remaining lime juice; season with salt.Preheat a grill or grill pan to high. Grill the steak, turning once, about 15 minutes for medium-rare; let rest for 5 minutes. Thinly slice the steak against the grain and toss with the tomato salsa. Fill each taco shell with some slaw mix, an avocado slice and steak with salsa. Serve with the lime wedges.
