One of our favorite restaurants here in town serves something they call Coyote Tacos. I have no idea why they are called that, but I DO know that they are delicious! Here is my version:
- 2 Thinly Sliced Rib Eye Steaks
- 1 T. Olive Oil
- 3 Slices of Bacon, chopped
- 2 Green Onions, sliced
- 1 Clove Garlic
- 2 T. Salsa
- 2 T. Water
- Fresh Cilantro, washed and stems removed
- Salt, Pepper, and 1/4 t. Cumin
- 2 t. Cholula Hot Sauce
- Low Carb Tortillas or Flatouts
If you aren't starting with cooked bacon, use a frying pan to cook bacon, and then remove bacon from pan. Omit the olive oil, and then saute the meat in the oil or bacon fat until slightly pink in the center. If you are starting with leftover bacon, add the olive oil to the pan and saute the steak, bacon and green onions until meat is just slightly pink in the center. Then, add garlic and salsas and spices. Add two tablespoons of water to deglaze the frying pan (with meat still in it), then cover pan and allow to rest for 5 minutes.
While meat was resting I used a biscuit cutter to cut 8 circles out of the Flatouts, place on tinfoil or cookie sheet and warm under broiler for about 2 minutes. The goal is to get them slightly less soggy, but not crunchy:
Add meat to shell and top with fresh cilantro and additional hot sauce if you wish. I was able to make 8 small tacos with the ingredients listed above.
