  1. Make the avocado cilantro lime sauce: Place the avocado, cilantro, lime juice, water, and salt in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth, then set aside.
  2. Make the chili lime rub: In a small bowl, combine the chili powder, cumin, oregano, salt, pepper, garlic, and lime juice.
  3. Rub the chili lime rub all over the steak in a thin, even layer.
  4. Grill the steak on either a grill or stove-top grill pan. To get the “X” grill marks, sear the steak for 1 minute, then turn about 90° and grill for another minute. Flip the steak when you’ve achieved desired grill marks and repeat the process on the other side. Remove from the grill and let rest for 5-10 minutes.
  5. Slice the steak thinly against the grain.
  6. Add a few strips of meat to a corn tortilla, then top with pico de gallo, the avocado cilantro lime sauce, and cilantro.
  7. Enjoy!
