Happy Tummy!

I don't know if anyone wants these recipes... but last night we made for the 3rd time a healthy recipe I found & love. It's super-easy and everytime we have it, we're like "yumm!!!" so I thought I'd pass it along...

Chili-Rub Steak Tacos

makes 6 tacos: serving should be 2, we eat 3 each!

1 tbs. chili powder
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
pinch cayenne (ground red) pepper
2 garlic cloves, minced

1 lb. steak (the better the steak, the better the tacos, but you can use cheaper beef if you want, we use whatever good steak is on sale, last night was NY strip)
Corn Tortillas
Shredded Cabbage
Chopped Cilantro
Guacamole (we love "Wholly Guacamole" from Harris Teeter)

Shred 1/4 head of cabbage like lettuce. Chop fresh cilantro (about 1/4 c.) Trim fat from raw steaks. Slice into thin strips. Chili-Rub: Mix first 5 ingredients in a small bowl. (Will be crumbly). Toss steak with chili-rub to coat evenly. Cook in skillet on medium heat. Cook just until outsides get brown. Don't overcook! Heat corn tortillas in skillet with a little cooking spray for 30 sec. each side.

Spread guacamole on each tortilla. Fill with steak, cilantro, and cabbage. Serve with lime slices. Squeeze lime juice on tacos just before eating.

This is a super fast and easy meal. The original recipe called for making your own avocado cream sauce, but we love the easy pre-made guac! Also, if you don't want quite so much seasoning on your steak, you could rub the steaks and cook them before slicing. We like lots of flavor.
