Recipe Continues Below


  1. Heat gas or charcoal grill. In gallon-size resealable food-storage plastic bag, mix oil and taco seasoning mix. Add steak. Seal bag; turn to evenly coat. If not grilling immediately, place in refrigerator to marinate, up to 2 hours.
  2. In medium bowl, mix corn, bell pepper and onion. Cover and refrigerate.
  3. Remove steak from marinade; discard marinade. Place steak on grill over medium heat (350°F to 400°F). Cover grill; cook 9 to 11 minutes, turning once, for medium-rare doneness (145°F internal temperature) or until desired doneness. Transfer steak to cutting board, and cover loosely with foil; let rest 10 minutes.
  4. Cut steak into thin strips across the grain; then cut strips into bite-size pieces.
  5. Divide spinach among heated taco shells. Top with steak and cheese. Spoon salsa over taco shells; top with avocado and cilantro. Serve with lime wedges.
