Okay YOU!!! This is an easy pizzzzy recipe and one that you must create in your own home! No questions, no doubts, but, a must!! So again I say to you, Steak Tortilla Cups a must!!!
Sometimes some of my recipes require a few ingredients that you may not always necessarily have stocked in your pantry or fridge but this one, truly all I’m worried about is you having any kind of steak stocked in your home…and come on, if you don’t you can make a quick run to the supermarket and go get that piece of uncut no name steak! You know why? Cause you don’t need that special cut, just some kind of beef BUT heads up nooo beef cube pieces, ok? They will never tenderize in this recipe!
This recipe is very simple, season the beef with some salt and pepper (wouldn’t hurt any if you added some Montreal Steak seasoning from Mc Cormick!) Add some everyday vegetables, a little bit of my serrano sauce on some muffin tortilla cups and walla!!!
So once again, I decided to surprise my family and YOU, with this very simple recipe…Steak Tortilla Cups!
Why because sometimes, a surprise from the ordinary is a good idea! Make something different! I think surprising our family and friends with some simple Mexican appetizers is just flat-out fun! Don’t you agree?! Yes you too or maybe you wouldn’t be reading this little blog of mine! (Smiling! Thank youu!) I do it too, I read so many different recipes, watch so many food videos, all in the hopes to continuously be inspired to bring a new recipe into my life and of course yours! Gosh, they’re endless!
One thing I absolutely love about Mexican Appetizers and More is that I get to bring to you all these fabulous Mexican Appetizers and this one is no exception! You and your family and friends will love it!

|With a muffin biscuit cutter, cut out one to two circles per corn tortilla. Place in a 12 cup muffin tin and cook for 7 to 10 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Watch carefully that they don't burn. They should be crispy but not burnt. Take out and continue with more tortilla circles. Set aside until ready to use.|
|After cutting your steak, place in a bowl and season with salt, pepper, garlic powder and Montreal Steak Seasoning if using. Mix well.|
|Heat skillet over medium heat and add both red and green chopped peppers. Cook for 3 minutes, add chopped onion. Cook for another 5 minutes. Add seasoned steak and mix well with vegetables. Cook for a few minutes or until steak is cooked through. Turn off stove.|
|After removing flesh from avocado, smash with a fork to form a paste. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and the lemon juice. Mix well together. Scoop guacamole into tortilla cups.|
|Add about 1 tablespoon steak mixture over guacamole tortilla cups. Add serrano sauce to taste and top with a few capers if using. Sprinkle chopped cilantro over each Steak Tortilla Cup. Done! Enjoy!|
|Note: Depending how thin you sliced your steak, you may have some left over, which means more Steak Tortilla Cups!|
