Ingredients

3 tablespoons tequila
1 teaspoon grated lime rind
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 1/4 teaspoons MCCORMICK Gourmet Collection Chipotle Chile Pepper
1 teaspoon MCCORMICK Gourmet Collection Mexican Oregano Leaves
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground MCCORMICK Gourmet Collection Black Peppercorns
1/2 teaspoon MCCORMICK Gourmet Collection Ground Cumin
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
2 teaspoons minced garlic
4 (1-inch-thick) BEEF Top Sirloin Steaks (about 6 oz. each)
PAM Olive Oil No-Stick Cooking Spray

Preparation

1. Stir together first 10 ingredients in a large bowl until blended. Trim fat from steaks; add steaks to marinade, turning to coat. Cover and chill 8 hours, turning occasionally, or, if desired, let stand at room temperature up to 2 hours.

2. Remove steaks from marinade. Bring marinade to a boil in a small saucepan over medium heat, and boil 2 minutes.

3. Heat a grill pan coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Grill steaks 5 to 6 minutes on each side or to desired degree of doneness, basting occasionally with marinade.

4. Remove steaks from grill pan, and place on a serving plate. Dollop each with Guacamole Butter. Spoon Fiesta Black Bean Salsa around steaks, and serve immediately with remaining Guacamole Butter.
