  1. Step 1

    To make salsa roja, heat a barbecue grill or chargrill on medium-high. Cook the tomatoes, onion, garlic and chilli, if using, turning occasionally, for 10 mins or until charred and tender. Set aside to cool. Remove and discard onion skin. Coarsely chop the tomatoes, onion and chilli. Squeeze the garlic from the skins and place in a food processor with the tomato, onion, chilli, lime juice and coriander. Process until smooth.

  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, combine the onion, lime juice, vinegar and sugar in a small bowl. Season. Set aside for 15 mins to develop the flavours. Drain well.

  3. Step 3

    Combine the cumin, paprika and chilli powder, if using, in a small bowl. Sprinkle over both sides of the steaks to coat. Season and spray with olive oil spray. Cook on the grill for 4 mins each side for medium-rare or until cooked to your liking. Transfer to a plate and loosely cover with foil. Set aside for 5 mins to rest. Thinly slice.

  4. Step 4

    Spread each tortilla with a little sour cream. Top with steak, avocado, tomato and fetta. Spoon over the salsa roja and top with the onion mixture to serve.
