3 starch, 2 vegetable, 3 1/2 lean meat, 1/2 fat
1 medium ripe avocado, cut into 8 thin slices
1 can (15 ounces) no-salt-added black beans
2 teaspoons chili powder
2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons fresh chopped cilantro leaves
8 small corn tortillas (5 to 6-inch diameter), warmed
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin (divided)
1/2 cup shredded lettuce
1 lime (cut into 8 wedges)
1/2 cup diced red onion
1 cup salsa (divided)
1 lb beef Bottom Round Steaks, cut 1/4-inch thick
1 cup diced tomatoes
Combine 1/2 cup salsa, chili powder and 1 teaspoon cumin. Place beef steaks and marinade in food-safe plastic bag; turn to coat. Close bag securely and marinate in refrigerator 6 hours or as long as overnight, turning occasionally.
Combine 1 cup beans, remaining 1/2 cup salsa and 1/2 teaspoon cumin in medium microwave-safe bowl. Mash with fork into chunky paste. Cover and microwave on HIGH 1 to 2 minutes or until hot, stirring once. Keep warm.
Meanwhile, heat large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot; remove from heat and coat with nonstick spray. Remove steaks from marinade; discard marinade. Cooking in batches, if necessary, place steaks in skillet (do not overcrowd) and cook 2 to 3 minutes for medium rare (145°F) doneness, turning once. (Do not overcook.) Remove steaks from skillet; keep warm. Repeat with remaining steaks.
Spread bean mixture evenly on tortillas. Cut steaks into 4 pieces each and divide evenly among tortillas. Top beef with remaining 1/2 cup beans, tomatoes, lettuce, red onion, cilantro, avocado and lime wedge, as desired. Fold tortillas in half to serve.
