Ingredients

  • 2 slices thick-cut bacon, chopped
  • 2 boneless beef rib eye steaks, 1 to 1 1/2 inches thick (about 12 oz each)
  • 2 tablespoons Montreal steak seasoning
  • 1 package (4.7 oz) Old El Paso™ Stand 'N Stuff™ blue corn taco shells
  • 2 cups shredded iceberg lettuce
  • 1/2 cup quartered cherry tomatoes
  • 1/3 cup ranch dressing
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced

Instructions

Step 1 In 12-inch skillet, cook bacon over medium heat 7 to 9 minutes or until crisp. Using slotted spoon, transfer bacon to small bowl; set aside. Reserve skillet with bacon drippings.

Step 2 Coat steaks with steak seasoning. Return skillet to medium-high heat until hot. Add steaks to bacon drippings in skillet; cook 5 to 7 minutes on first side or until deep brown and steak releases easily from pan. Turn; cook 5 to 7 minutes longer or until browned and steaks reach desired internal temperature (145°F for medium).

Step 3 Transfer steaks to cutting board; cover with foil, and let stand 5 minutes. Slice very thinly; discard any pieces of fat and gristle.

Step 4 Meanwhile, heat taco shells as directed on package. Divide lettuce among taco shells. Top with sliced steak and tomatoes. Drizzle with dressing. Top with green onions and bacon.

Expert Tips

For even more steakhouse wedge flavor, top tacos with crumbled blue cheese.
Grocery stores vary in how they prefer to cut their rib eye steaks. If you can only find larger steaks, don’t fret. Purchase a thick 1 1/2 lb steak, then cut it in half to make the 2 (12 oz) steaks called for in the recipe.
