For Christmas this year I was given 3 copies of Rachael Ray Look + Cook cookbooks! Yes, three!
The kiddos and I headed out today to go shopping and I brought my cookbook with in the car. Once we arrived in the grocery store parking lot, I quickly flipped through and picked out a recipe that looked good for tonight. We ran inside, grabbed the items we needed and headed home to make up this mouth watering bad boy! Oh my gosh was it good! I could have eaten the entire dish, but decided against it since Lover Boy needed to eat as well, bummer!

Lets Make it Together!
-Heat oven to 400 degrees
-8 flour tortillas cut into 1″ strips
-1 Tbs onion powder
-1 Tbs garlic powder
-1 Tbs ground cumin
-1 tsp cinnamon
-1 Tbs chili powder
-1 tsp dried oregano
-1 1/2 lbs sirloin steak (or chicken breasts)
– S & P
-4 Tbs high-temp cooking oil
-1 bottle Mexican beef (I used Dos Equis)
-2 red bell peppers
-2 red onions
-3-4 garlic cloves
-1/4 c fresh cilantro
-2 c shredded pepper jack cheese
-sour cream (optional)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Arrange sliced tortillas on a baking sheet and spray with cooking spray. Bake until crispy (7-8 min). Once done, turn oven heat to broiler temp. In a small bowl, combine dry spices. Season the meat with S & P and slice into strips and toss in dry rub to coat evenly. Add meat to large skillet with 2 Tbs of hot oil. Caramelize the meat on both sides (a few minutes) and then add 1 bottle beer and let simmer. While meat is cooking heat 2 Tbs in another large skillet. Add veggies and garlic. Once browned add cilantro and juice of one lime. Season with S & P. Combine meat, veggies and tortillas in a large baking dish. Top with shredded pepper jack cheese. Place in broiler until cheese is melted. Garnish with juice of 1 lime and sour cream and/or salsa.
