Steak Tacos with Salsa & Feta Guacamole

Posted on

Have you ever had feta guacamole?

I had not.

I’m aware it’s not strictly Mexican but I had avocados, I had feta and things just happened.

Honestly, I was minding my own business in the kitchen when this punk-ass avocado swaggers across the counter, gets all up on the feta, and in his rich, Spanish accent says “eyyy… chica! You an’ me? You and me togetherrr would be a beauuutiful ting. Whadduya say, eh?”

The feta just got all giggly and tongue tied. THREW her wrapper to the floor in one swift movement and the next thing I knew there was this unbelievable concoction in front of me, my hands were covered in it and I just kept scooping more into my mouth…

Yea. Things got pretty weird.

Anyway, I figured it would go swimmingly with some spicy steak tacos, so I made some!

Spicy, smokey steak, rich, salty guac… Add a little salsa and some sour cream and you have yourself a Mexigreek FEAST, my friend.

You want to start by marinading your steaks. Ideally overnight but if you can’t then even an hour would do wonders.

Mix the juice of two limes, 1tsp of smoked paprika, 1tsp chilli powder, pinch of salt and a scattering of dried chillies (I used jalapeños and chipotles). Pour over your steaks, flip them around a little and leave to mingle.

Once it’s marinaded you can get started on the guac.

Crush up 2 avocados, crumble a fist sized amount of feta over the top, add a big pinch of chopped coriander (cilantro) and the juice of 1 lime.

Mix it all together and pop into a bowl.

For your salsa grab 2 spring onions and chop ’em up.

Quarter a couple of handfuls of cherry toms and a good pinch of chopped coriander/cilantro.

If you’re a spice demon them add a chopped fresh chilli in there too.

Put into a bowl with a splash of white wine vinegar (it’ll take some of the heat out of the onions) and a good pinch of flaked salt.

Get a griddle pan really nice and hot. Throw your steaks on!

Cook on each side for a couple of minutes.

Heat some tortilla wraps while you’re waiting.

When the steaks are cooked just the way you like, pop them onto a wooden chopping board to rest for a few moments.

Lay the table, slice your steaks into manageable strips and serve!

Build the taco of your dreams any way you see fit.

Wrap and demolish.

Thank goodness for the combination that shall now be known as Fetamolé!

I bet it would be good on toast, too…

    Very random question, I moved to the UK in June from NY, have found the consistency of the sour cream I’ve found so far to be a bit on the liquidy side (as compared to what we have in the shops in the US) however it looks a bit more like what I’m used to in the photos above, do you mind providing the brand?

    • Rosie

      This is from Waitrose! x

      • Danielle Breen

        Thanks so much!!!

  • Bonnie Hatcher

    You must try Roquamole! It’s roquefort mixed with a ripe av, a couple of spring onions, sour cream and a pinch of salt. OH. EM. GEE, I could eat an entiiiiire bowl in one sitting.

    Bonnie x

    • Rosie

      Sounds like some seriously strong flavours! Will give it a go, thanks Bonnie! x

      • Bonnie Hatcher

        Yeah it’s pretty strong. Not gonna lie, you will need a little lie down if you do manage an entire bowl full. But if you share with friends it’s just the ticket. Serve with a mix of black-bean AND normal corn tortilla crisps for a little visual je ne sais quoi….

  • Fetamole – the fabness of the name alone means I just have to try making this!!!

  • MissEmmySue

    Feta IN guacamole…that sounds heavenly. I’m definitely adding this to my “must make asap” list. And (of course) your presentation is beautiful.
    Thank you, Rosie!

    I actually had to stop and reread your opening question just in case I had misread it or was dreaming before I could allow myself to get excited over it. Feta and guac are both some of my favorite foods ever. This looks so amazing. You’re such a creative cook.

    Umm, YES! Yes to all of this! I would not have thought to put feta in my guacamole, and I’m a guacamole connoisseur. But as soon as I read the title of your post I knew it would be amazing together. Everything looks amazing!

  • I’ll tell you what, those avocados do have a way with the cheeses – they don’t stand a chance of not melting at the slight attention of the “punk-ass” avos. I’m a cheddar and avocado sandwich kind of gal but this concoction looks lovely too! 🙂

  • Lauren

    Making these tomorrow night!!! Cannot wait….Am forced to make fajitas and burritos, for my Mexican-food-loving boyfriend at least once a week – so we are hoping this will be another treasure to add to my limited repertoire!! xxxxx

    ps, You are really getting me through the last few months of my degree – I’m a London girl who has been in Leeds for the past 7 years studying and I can’t tell you how grateful I am for all your tips and reviews of places – I have a growing list in my Docs that reads ‘List of Restaurants and Places recommended by Rosie the Londoner’…..and I plan all visiting every one as soon as I am back down South! THANK YOU!

  • im going to bookmark this recipe and try it this weekend, my bf and I love a good ole gaucamole & the feta seems like the cherry on top!

    I just ate, but now I’m actually hungry again.

  • Stacey

    I wonder how guac would taste with goat’s cheese? Love the table layout…methinks it’s time to take us on a tour of your new place??

  • Sarah

    Avo and feta on toast is all the rage in Australia at the moment!! It’s in every cafe. I’m not complaining though, it’s amazing – I make it regularly to put on toast for lunch! It looks delish on those tacos as well, may have to make some.

  • Iram Sharif

    I made these tacos yesterday, my husband and I loved them! He wants another batch today! Thanks Rosie, keep these recipes coming!

  • This looks so amazingly delicious! 🙂
