Smoky, citrus flavors brighten up your morning. Simply layer toasted tortillas, sliced steak, salsa and avocado for wide-awake senses.


  • 4 beef Eye of Round Steaks, cut 3/4 inch thick (about 4 oz each)
  • 1 cup thick and chunky salsa, divided
  • 1/2 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons chipotle chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon orange peel divided
  • 4 large eggs
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 4 medium whole wheat or multigrain tortillas, toasted
  • 1 medium avocado, sliced
  • lime wedges


Combine 1/2 cup salsa, orange juice, cilantro, chili powder and 1 tablespoon orange peel in small bowl. Place beef steaks and salsa mixture in food-safe plastic bag; turn steaks to coat. Close bag securely and marinate in refrigerator 6 hours or as long as overnight, turning occasionally.

Remove steaks from marinade; discard marinade. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Place steaks in skillet; cook 11 to 13 minutes for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally.

Meanwhile, cook eggs as desired. Keep warm.

Combine remaining 1/2 cup salsa and 1 teaspoon orange peel. Carve steaks into thin slices; season with salt and pepper, as desired. Evenly place steak slices and egg on each tortilla. Top with salsa mixture and avocado slices. Serve with lime wedges, if desired.
