Spicy aioli brings a zesty kick to steak tacos, and the ribeye is a nice upgrade from typical ground beef. Grab one and enjoy the burst of flavor in each bite! —Michael Compean, Los Angeles, California

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons Sriracha chili sauce or 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 medium ripe avocado, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1/2 medium tomato, seeded and chopped
  • 3 tablespoons sliced ripe olives
  • 2 tablespoons canned whole kernel corn
  • 2 tablespoons chopped sweet red pepper
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 4 teaspoons minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped onion
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons pepper
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon seafood seasoning
  • 1 beef ribeye steak (1 pound), trimmed
  • 8 flour tortillas (6 inches)
  • Optional toppings: Shredded lettuce, cheddar cheese and Cotija cheese


  1. In a small bowl, combine the aioli ingredients. In another bowl, combine the salsa ingredients. Refrigerate until serving.
  2. Combine the pepper, oil, salt and seafood seasoning; rub over both sides of steak.
  3. Grill, covered, over medium heat until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°), 6-8 minutes on each side. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, grill tortillas until warm, about 45 seconds on each side. Thinly slice steak; place on tortillas. Serve with aioli, salsa and toppings of your choice.
