TV Dinner: Sonoran Surf & Turf


It's surf and turf Mexican-style. Sonoran-style, to be exact.

Sonoran Surf & Turf

For the salsa:

Combine all ingredients in a medium-size mixing bowl. Mix well and chill for an hour.

For the rub:

- 3 tablespoons chili powder
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 1 tablespoon ground cumin
- 1 tablespoon ground chipotle pepper
- 1 tablespoon onion powder
- 1 tablespoon garlic powder

Mix all ingredients together and use for beef, pork, chicken, or shrimp.

Putting it together:

Use the rub to season the beef and shrimp for surf and turf. Lightly grill a 6-inch tortilla and top with shredded Jack cheese.

Grill steak to desired temperature and place on top of tortilla and cheese. Spoon salsa over steak.

Grill shrimp until cooked through and place on top of steak and salsa.

Enjoy with Coyote Moon Vineyard's Frontenac Gris.

Recipe yields enough rub and salsa for four servings.
