Jalapeño Guacamole

3 ripe avocados

6 slices pickled jalapeño chillies, finely chopped
2 tbsp lime juice
1 tbsp pure olive oil
½ cup flat-leaf parsley leaves, finely chopped

Combine spices, honey and vegetable oil in a large bowl. Whisk and season. Place 1 tablespoon of mixture in a medium bowl and add onions. Toss to coat.

Add steak to remaining mixture; turn to coat. Season.

Heat a large barbecue flat plate or large frying pan over high heat. Add steaks, cook for 2 minutes on each side for medium rare.

Transfer to a plate to rest for 5 minutes, loosely covered with foil.

Add onions to flat 
plate. Cook, tossing, until onions are soft and charred slightly. Transfer to a platter. Slice steak.

Meanwhile, make jalapeño guacamole. Spoon avocado into a bowl and coarsely mash it with a fork. Stir in jalapeños, lime juice, olive oil and parsley. Season.

Warm tortillas on the grill until soft, 10 to 20 seconds each side. Place them in a cloth-lined basket, cover and keep warm.

Serve steak and grilled onions with tortillas, tomato, lettuce, lime wedges and sour cream.
