Ingredients

Main Ingredients
  • 1 Skirt steak, sliced into segments
  • 2 tablespoons Hatch Chile Rub
  • 8-10 tortillas, cut into wedges
  • 1 1/2 cups avocado oil
  • 8 fresh eggs
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Salsa Ingredients
  • 4-5 tomatillos
  • 1 white onion
  • 1/4 cup green onions
  • 2 jalapeños
  • 1/4 cup cilantro
  • 3 limes, squeezed
  • Salt to taste
Topping Ingredients
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1/2 cup red onions, sliced
  • Cotija cheese, grated to taste
  • Cilantro for garnish
  • Limes for garnish

Directions

  1. Gradually preheat the Cook-It-All over a medium-high fire. Add avocado oil. Place tomatillos, white onions, green onions, and jalapeños on the coals and cook until charred. Gather the cooked veggies, clean off the ash, discard stems/skin, and add to food processor along with cilantro, limes, and salt to make salsa. Mix salsa until liquified.
  2. Add tortillas to the preheated wok and cook until crispy, 5-7 minutes. At the same time, preheat the grill side of the Cook-It-All. Season Skirt steaks with salt, pepper, and my Hatch Chile Rub, and then grill for 3-4 minutes per side or until internal temperature reaches 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Pull the steaks and let them rest for 10 minutes.
  3. Once the chips are done, pull them out of the oil and let them rest on some paper towels for 5 minutes. Discard all oil left in the wok, add chips back to the wok, and add salsa on top. Stir and let simmer over the fire, 5-6 minutes.
  4. While chips and salsa are simmering, flip the Cook-It-All grill to the griddle and add oil and eggs. Cook to your liking!
  5. Pull everything off the fire. In a bowl, add the chips with salsa, sliced skirt steak, fresh red onions, eggs, avocado, cotija cheese, cilantro, and lime juice. Enjoy!
