Ingredients
  • 2 Omaha Steaks Flat Iron Steaks
  • 1 cup thick-and-chunky salsa, divided
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro
  • 24 large corn tortilla chips
  • 1/2 cup guacamole
  • 24 fresh cilantro leaves, optional
Preparation
  1. Place beef steaks and 1/2 cup salsa in food-safe plastic bag; turn steaks to coat. Close bag securely and marinate in refrigerator 15 minutes to 2 hours. Combine remaining 1/2 cup salsa and chopped cilantro, as desired; cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. Remove steaks from marinade; discard marinade. Place steaks on grill, turning occasionally.

    For medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness:
    Charcoal: Grill over medium, ash-covered coals, uncovered, 10 to 14 minutes.
    Gas: Grill over medium heat on preheated grill, covered, 12 to 16 minutes.
  3. Carve steaks into thin slices; cut slices into bite-size pieces. Arrange chips on platter. Top each chip evenly with reserved salsa mixture, beef and guacamole. Garnish with cilantro leaf, if desired. Serve immediately.
