  • Dry Rub:
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Bowl Ingredients:
  • 1/2 pound flank steak
  • 1 cup cooked white rice
  • 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup chopped romaine lettuce
  • 1 cup tortilla chips
  • 1/2 cup canned black beans
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges
  • 1/4 cup crumbled cotija cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • Avocado Cilantro Dressing:
  • 2 avocados, peeled and pitted
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 clove garlic

  1. Preheat a grill pan or skillet over medium-high heat until just barely smoking.
  2. Combine garlic powder, chili powder, kosher salt, paprika, and cumin in a bowl; rub over all sides of flank steak.

  4. Divide rice, tomatoes, romaine lettuce, tortilla chips, black beans, jalapeno peppers, and lime wedges between 2 serving bowls; top with steak, cotija cheese, and 1 tablespoon cilantro.
