4 Servings | Prep 15 min (plus marinating) | Grill 10 min
* 1/2 cup cola
* 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
* Juice of 2 limes, plus lime wedges for serving
* 2 teaspoons chili powder
* 1 pound skirt steak, cut into 4 portions
* 2 tomatoes, finely chopped
* 1 small onion, chopped
* 1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro
* 2 jalapeÃ±o chiles, finely chopped
* 8 crisp taco shells
* 2 cups shredded slaw mix (from a 1-pound bag)
* 1 avocado, cut into 8 lengthwise slices
1. In a resealable plastic bag, combine the cola, olive oil, 2 tablespoons lime juice, the chili powder and 1 1/2 teaspoons salt. Add the steak and let marinate at room temperature for about 30 minutes.
2. In a large bowl, toss together the tomatoes, onion, cilantro, jalapeÃ±os and remaining lime juice; season with salt.
3. Preheat a grill or grill pan to high. Grill the steak, turning once, about 15 minutes for medium-rare; let rest for 5 minutes. Thinly slice the steak against the grain and toss with the tomato salsa. Fill each taco shell with some slaw mix, an avocado slice and steak with salsa. Serve with the lime wedges.
