Ingredients:

  • 1 beef Strip Steak Boneless, cut 3/4 inch thick (about 8 ounces each)
  • 1-1/4 cups HERDEZ Casera Salsa salsa
  • 4 small corn tortillas (5 to 6 inch diameter), toasted
  • 1 cup no-salt-added refried beans
  • 1 cup thinly sliced iceberg lettuce
  • 1/4 cup crumbled Cotija cheese
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion or pickled red onion

  3. Remove; let stand 5 minutes.  Cut steaks lengthwise in thirds, then crosswise into 1/4-inch thick pieces.
