 Grilled Steak Fiesta Salad
Serves: 2

Ingredients
  • 2 steaks (total of about 1lb. I used top round but would recommend a different cut as they were quite chewy – but hey, they were on sale!)
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, seeded and chopped
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • ¼ tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp cilantro
  • ¼ tsp allspice
  • ½ tsp ground pepper
  • Lettuce, chopped
  • Corn
  • Black Beans
  • Shredded Mexican Cheese
  • Crushed red pepper
  • Dressing of your choice (I used Chipotle Ranch Dressing)

Instructions
  1. Whisk together the honey, chipotle in adobo, dijon mustard, lime juice, minced garlic, cumin, cilantro, allspice and pepper in a bowl.
  2. Add the steaks to the bowl and generously coat with the marinade. Cover and let marinate for 30 minutes to 1 hour, tossing a few times during the marinate process.
  3. Meanwhile, combine the corn and black beans. Season with desired amount of crushed red pepper.
  4. Heat your grill to medium heat and grill until your desired doneness is reached.
  5. Slice the steak across the grain.
  6. Place lettuce in large serving bowls or plates and top with black bean/corn mixture, shredded cheese and sliced steak. Top with your desired dressing or enjoy plain.
