+ 2-8 oz. Flat Iron beef steaks
+ 12 corn tortillas (6 to 7-in. diameter)
+ 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
+ salt
+ pepper

Citrus Salsa:
+ 1/3 c. chopped jicama
+ 1/3 c. chopped orange
+ 1 Tbsp. finely chopped jalapeno pepper
+ 2 tsp. red wine vinegar

+ 1/2 tsp. grated orange peel

Avocado Cream:
+ 1/2 c. mashed avocado
+ 1 Tbsp. low-fat dairy sour cream

Rub:

What to do:
1. Combine Citrus Salsa ingredients in small bowl; season with salt and pepper as desired. Set aside.
2. Combine Avocado Cream ingredients in small bowl; season with salt and pepper as desired. Set aside.
3. Combine Rub ingredients; press evenly onto beef steaks. Place steaks on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, uncovered, 10-14 min. (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, covered, 12-16 min.) for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally. Transfer steaks to carving board.
4. Meanwhile, cut 1 "mini tortilla" from each tortilla with 4-in. diameter cookie cutter. Discard tortilla scraps or save for another use. Lightly brush both sides of mini tortillas with oil. Grill over medium heat 1-3 min. or until lightly crisp, turning once.
5. Carve steaks lengthwise in half, then crosswise into thin slices. Season with salt and pepper as desired. Top each mini tortilla with equal amounts of avocado cream, beef slices and salsa. Serve immediately.

* Note: Four-in. mini corn tortillas are occasionally available in Hispanic markets and some large supermarkets.
