Give the taco meat a rub

One of my favorites in college was the steak taco from Taco Bell. Actually Taco Bell was my first Tex Mex experience in the US and it was a lot different from when I got it served for the first time. I think it was 1986 or was it 87 and some friends of my parents served a meat sauce made with salsa in taco shells with lettuce, grated cheese and sour cream, it was not a hit.

30 years later there has been a lot of taco experiences since the taco Bolognese and Taco Bell is but a fond memory from the past. This recipe is my adaptation of the steak taco from Taco Bell.

Nice rib eye steaks rubbed with Fajita spice mix, use a ready made spice mix or make your own

Fajita spice mix

1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp sugar
3⁄4 tsp crushed chicken bouillon cube
1⁄2 tsp onion powder
1⁄4 tsp garlic powder
1⁄4 tsp cayenne pepper
1⁄4 tsp cumin

Mix the spices, rub them on your steaks and grill them to your liking.

I served this with tortillas, lettuce, red onion, sour cream, avocado and pebre a chilean version of salsa.
