  1. 1 tablespoon olive oil
  2. 1 1-pound skirt steak, cut into thirds
  3. 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  4. 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  5. 1 large yellow onion, thinly sliced
  6. 1 large bell pepper (any color), thinly sliced

  8. Sour cream, salsa, and guacamole for serving


  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Season the steak with 1/4 teaspoon of the salt and the pepper. Cook for 3 minutes. Turn and move to the sides of the skillet.

  5. Transfer the steak to a cutting board.
  6. Place the tortillas in a microwave and warm on high for 1 1/2 minutes.
