Spice Rubbed Flank Steak Tacos with Fresh Avocado and Tio’s Salsa

I think I should have titled this post, Me and the Ranger… Kitchen calamities!  It’s been quite the evening here at the Bennett Camp.  I had the brilliant idea of preparing a fun and delicious dinner of quick grilled spice rubbed flank steak tacos, with fresh organic avocado slices, Ranchero or Monterrey Jack cheese, and our favorite Tio’s Salsa, all stuffed in warm and salty corn tortillas.  Sounds lovely doesn’t it?
