  • 4 4 12” tortillas

  • 1 tsp 1 olive oil spray

  • 1 lb 1 flank steak

  • 1 tsp 1 olive oil

  • 1 tsp 1 onion powder

  • 1 tsp 1 garlic powder

  • 1 tsp 1 dried oregano

  • 1 tbsp 1 chilli powder

  • Kosher salt and pepper, to taste

  • 1/2 cup 1/2 red salsa

  • 1/2 cup 1/2 greek yogurt

  • 1 tsp 1 hot sauce

  • Pinch Kosher Salt

  • 1 1 romaine lettuce heart, chopped

  • 1 1 tomato chopped

  • 1 can 1 corn, drained and rinsed

  • 1/4 cup 1/4 cojita cheese

  • 1 1 lime, for juice (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 450°F.
  • In a bowl, combine all your seasonings. Coat your flank steak with oil and coat in seasoning. Leave to marinate while you make your tortilla bowls.
  • Place 4 oven safe bowl upside down or cans onto a baking sheet. Spray with olive oil spray. Heat tortillas in the microwave so they are pliable. Drape the tortillas over the bowls or can and spray the outside with olive oil.
  • Place in the oven for 5 minutes, until the outside is golden brown. Remove from the oven and separate the tortillas from the bowls. Remove the bowls or can from the baking sheet and invert the tortilla bowls so that the opening is facing up. Bake until crisp, 4-5 minutes. Remove and let cool.
  • Heat a cast iron skillet over medium high heat and spray with a little olive oil. Sear and cook your flank steak to desired doneness, I like 125°F for flank steak. Remove from the pan and allow to rest for 10 minutes.
  • To make our taco sauce, combine salsa, greek yogurt, hot sauce and salt in a bowl. Mix to combine.
  • Once your steak is rested, slice against the grain thinly for super tender flank steak pieces. Cut into bite sized pieces.
  • To assemble, grab a tortilla bowl, fill with lettuce, top with tomato, corn, flank steak, cojita cheese, the juice from a wedge of lime and drizzle on your sauce.
  • Enjoy this one!
