  • Author: by Mary
  • Prep Time: 20 mins
  • Cook Time: 15 mins
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 2 1x


  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 12 oz steak (flank or skirt works well)
  • 1/2 cup corn
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 68 small tortillas
  • salad greens (I used an herb mix)
  • 1/2 cup goat cheese crumbles
  • 1 Jalapeño, sliced
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • cilantro + lime for garnish


  1. Combine the onion powder, garlic powder, smoked paprika, pepper, salt, lime juice, and olive oil in a plastic bag. Mix well. Add the steak, coating it completely, and let marinade in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  2. Remove the steak from the refrigerator 1 hour prior to cooking, but leave it in the marinade.
  3. Cook the steak to your liking, however you please. Let it rest 10 minutes before slicing into thin strips.
  4. In a dry saucepan, combine the corn and 1/2 tsp smoked paprika. Cook over medium heat, swirling and flipping kernels for about 5 minutes. The kernels should begin to brown (or blacken). Remove from heat.
  5. To assemble the tacos, first add salad greens to the tortilla, then goat cheese, jalapeño, steak, avocado, corn, cilantro, and lime.
