Preparation

  1. In small bowl, mix 1 tablespoon of the oil and 1 tablespoon of the seasoning mix (from taco kit); set aside.
  2. In 10-inch nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium heat. Add onion, bell pepper and remaining seasoning mix; cook 4 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Transfer mixture to medium bowl; cover and keep warm. Carefully clean out skillet.
  3. Coat steaks in 1 tablespoon of the oil. In same skillet, cook steaks over medium-high heat 4 minutes; turn, reduce heat to medium-low and cook 4 to 7 minutes longer, until meat thermometer inserted in center reads 145°F (medium-rare) or to desired doneness. Remove from heat; transfer steaks to cutting board. Brush steaks on all sides with mixture of oil and seasoning mix; cover with foil, and let stand 5 minutes. Cut steak very thinly across the grain.
  4. Meanwhile, carefully clean out skillet; add remaining 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Add eggs; cook 1 to 2 minutes or until eggs are set but still moist, stirring frequently. Remove from heat; stir in cheese.
  5. Heat tortillas (from taco kit) as directed on package. Divide steak among tortillas; top with egg mixture, followed by pepper mixture. Top with cilantro. Serve with creamy chipotle sauce (from taco kit) and crema.

Expert Tips

  • Cleaning out the skillet in between steps not only prevents burning–it also ensures the prettiest steak and scrambled eggs!
  • Brushing the cooked steaks with the vegetable oil and seasoning mix is a great way to add flavor to the meat while keeping the pan tidy. Try this technique with other flavorings as well, like chimichurri sauce or a citrus vinaigrette.
  • Resist the urge to add salt and pepper to the scrambled eggs. There’s enough seasoning in the veggies and on the steak to flavor the entire breakfast street taco.
