Cinnamon-Spiced Carne Asada Taco Tuesday

Cinnamon-Spiced Carne Asada Taco Tuesday
With little kiddos in the house we try and make our meals fun. And one way we do that is having "theme" night such as...TACO TUESDAY!!!
Serves: 4 (2 tacos per serving)
Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes
1/4 c. vegetable oil, divided (or more as needed)
6 slices carne asada
1 t. garlic salt
1/2 t. pepper
1/4 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. paprika
8 corn tortillas
1 large avocado, halved and pitted
1 T. Greek yogurt, honey-flavored
1 c. cheddar cheese, shredded
1 1/2 c. cabbage, chopped
1/4 c. cilantro, minced
Heat two tablespoons of oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high and begin cooking tortillas a few minutes on each side until slightly golden, forming them into a taco shell. Drain on paper towel and set aside.
In the meantime heat remaining oil in a cast iron grill also over medium-high and cook carne asada until medium temperature about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove and allow to cool slightly before slicing and/or chopping.
In a small bowl combine avocado and yogurt and using a fork mash into guacamole.
Assemble tacos by evenly smearing each taco shell with guacamole, next the carne asada, then cheese and finally cabbage and cilantro.
* One of our favorite simple side dishes when it's TACO TUESDAY is cheesy refried beans
