Ingredients

  • 1 pound Top Sirloin steak cut into ½ inch cubes
  • Salt and pepper
  • ½ Lime
  • 6 oz. of bacon cut into ½-in pieces (6 slices)
  • 1-¼ cup white onion chopped (about ½ medium-size onion)
  • 1-¼ cup red and green peppers chopped. *
  • 6 oz. Oaxaca or Muenster cheese.**
  • 12 medium size corn tortillas or 8 medium-size flour
  • tortillas

To serve

  • use a spicy salsa of your choice, like green avocado tomatillo salsa or red taqueria salsa.

Instructions

  • Place chopped meat in a bowl. Squeeze the lime juice over the meat and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • Place skillet over medium-high heat. Once the skillet is really hot, start cooking the bacon. Cook for about 4 minutes, or until the bacon has started to release its fat and turning light brown around the edges. At this point, you can remove some of the fat if you want.
  • Add the steak to the skillet with the bacon and cook, about 6 minutes. Now, stir in the chopped onion and peppers. Keep cooking for about 3-4 minutes. Cook longer if you like the onion and peppers more tenderly cooked.
  • Finally, place the cheese all over the meat and wait until it starts melting. Remove skillet from heat and place a lid. Warm the tortillas and serve in tacos.

Notes

  • * They are usually made with green bell pepper only.
  • **If you have a hard time finding Oaxaca or Muenster cheese, use any other type of melting cheese. Muenster is my first choice of cheese to substitute the Oaxaca cheese when I can’t find it, but you can use Mozzarella or Monterrey Jack.
