  • 1 lb skirt steak
  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 bag tater tots
  • 8 oz colby jack cheese shredded
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes quartered
  • green onions sliced
  • cilantro chopped
  • sour cream


  • Mix together the oil, lime juice, cumin, garlic powder, chili powder and salt
  • Coat the skirt steak in this and marinate 2-3 hours in the fridge
  • When steak is ready start preparing everything
  • Preheat oven to 425
  • Line a sheet pan with parchment paper and cook tater tots per package instruction, they should be golden and crispy when done
  • Cook the steak in a pan on the stovetop until medium rare (see notes), let stand 10 minutes before cutting into bite size pieces
  • Pull the tater tots out of the oven
  • Spread the steak over, followed by the grated cheese
  • Place back in the oven just until the cheese has melted, just a few minutes
  • Pull from the oven
  • Top with the tomatoes, green onion, cilantro and sour cream
  • Serve immediately


the steak will cook in the oven a few extra minutes you don’t want it to be tough and overcook it at this point
*I like to use spectrum organic sunflower oil for my marinades because it has a very mild flavor compared to other oils
