"I created this completely by accident while trying to use up ingredients before I move. I was all out of several taco making items, so I had to just make do with what I had in the house. I really liked how everything came together quickly and was so flavorful. I measured only the amount of meat, everything else is a guess and should be added to taste. I would have added some avocado slices if I had any in the house. Not authentic Mexican, just Mexican inspired. Prep time is also a guess - if you buy your meat already cut into tips, it will be faster."

Step 1

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat (adjust temp as needed).

Step 2

Add butter; once the butter has melted, add the meat.

Step 3

Season to taste with some salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

Step 4

Toss and stir the meat until it is brown on all sides and is cooked to your liking; I prefer mine about medium rare, so no more than 5 minutes for mine).

Step 5

Once the beef is cooked enough for your tastes, add the salsa and stir; remove from pan once the salsa is no longer cold, perhaps a minute or less.

Step 6

Divide meat among 2 very large soft warm tortillas (or several smaller ones, if you prefer), then add lettuce, tomatoes, corn, cheese, etc to your tastes.

Step 7

Drizzle with a small amount of buttermilk ranch on top of each, roll up or fold; enjoy.

Step 8

Note: I warm my tortillas in the microwave just before serving.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.


These tacos were really delicious. I used chunky mild salsa on mine . Next time I make them I may try a different type of salsa; and I will be making these again!

Daily Inspiration

Made these steak tip tacos using some thin ribeye steaks that we had on hand. I made my own cilantro, tomatillo ranch dip/dressing to go with them. Served them with some sliced avocado and rolled them up in flour tortillas.
