No matter who you're rooting for on Sunday, everyone can agree the food can make or break your Super Bowl party.
Chef Justin Macy from Miraval Resorts shows us healthy dishes to serve on Super Bowl Sunday.
BLACKENED SIRLOIN TACOS WITH SMOKY CHIPOTLE AIOLI AND BLACK BEANS CHARRO-STYLE
Zesty, smoke, and ever- so satisfying, these tacos are one of our most requested dishes at Miraval. If you are unable to obtain blue-corn tortillas in your area, use yellow-corn or flour tortillas to make your tacos. But if you do so, remember that the texture and the nutritional counts will vary.
MAKES 4 SERVINGS
1 tsp. chopped fresh basil
1 tsp. chopped fresh cilantro
1 tsp. chopped fresh oregano
½ tsp. ancho chili powder
½ tsp. minced fresh garlic
¼ tsp. kosher salt
1 lb. beef sirloin, trimmed of fat and sinew
½ tsp. Miraval Oil Blend (see below)
4 six-inch corn tortillas
4 six-inch blue-corn tortillas
1 recipe Black Bean Charro-Style
1 recipe Chipotle-Cilantro Aioli (see below)
½ c. Edamame Guacamole (see below)
½ c. Tomato Pico de Gallo (see below)
4 lime wedges, for garnish
PLACE the herbs, ancho powder, and garlic in a bowl and stir with a fork to combine. Add the meat to the bowl several pieces at a time, turning t coat on both sides. Lightly season the meat with the salt.
HEAT a large skillet or sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the oil and when hot, add the meat; cook until blackened on the outside and medium rare, 3 to 4 minutes per side, depending upon the thickness.
Transfer the meat to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes, and then thinly slice.
IN a large clean skillet heat the tortillas one at a time, 30 to 40 seconds each, turning once. Place on a plate and cover with a clean kitchen cloth to keep warm.
TO serve, divide the beans among four large plates. Lay one blue-corn and one yellow-corn tortilla on each plate and fill with the sirloin. Drizzle 1 tsp. of the aioli over the meat on each tortilla, and top with 2 tsp. each of the guacamole and pico de gallo. Garnish each plate with a lime wedge and serve immediately.
