Recipe Continues Below


  1. Place beef in large, resealable food-storage plastic bag. In small bowl, mix orange juice, 2 tablespoons of the lime juice, the garlic and taco seasoning mix. Pour marinade over beef. Seal bag; refrigerate at least 30 minutes but no longer than 4 hours.
  2. Heat gas or charcoal grill.
  3. Remove steak from marinade; discard marinade. Place steak on grill over medium heat. Cover grill, and cook 11 to 16 minutes, turning once, until beef is of desired doneness (at least 145°F). Let stand 5 minutes. Cut beef across grain, into thin slices.
  4. Meanwhile, to make guacamole, in medium bowl, mash avocados. Add serrano chile, 1/4 cup of the red onion, the cilantro, remaining 1 tablespoon lime juice and the salt; gently stir to combine.
  5. Divide steak among tortilla bowls. Top with guacamole, remaining 1/4 cup red onion and the chopped tomato.

Expert Tips

  • If you like your guacamole extra spicy, don’t seed the chile before chopping.
