Steak Tacos {in soft corn tortillas}

I know I've gone on before about my obsession love of authentic tacos.  I just can't get enough of them!  I have dreams of the ones we had in Mexico when I went with my Youth Group on a Missions Trip in 1999.  I've had a few tacos here and there (CO and NC) that come close too, but nothing is quite as good.  I've never quite been able to replicate them at home either...I'm not sure if it's that it doesn't taste as good at home or I just can't quite remember the combination of ingredients....but I just did come up with something that is just as good if not better than the memory! If that even makes sense...  So here it is:

Steak Tacos in Soft Corn Tortillas
1/2 lb. Steak*, marinate overnight with 1 T. Worcestershire Sauce, sprinkled paprika, salt and pepper
1 Small Onion, diced
1 Hot Pepper, finely diced (either Jalapeno or Serrano)
Cilantro, roughly chopped
Lettuce, shredded (I used romaine, but your favorite works!)
Corn Tortillas, preferably fresh

*whatever you have on hand, whatever you prefer or whatever you find a great deal on

1.  Take the steak that you marinated overnight and place it in a skillet on medium high heat. (I used my cast iron, but any will work)  Cook it about 2 minutes and then flip over and cook about 2 minutes.
2.  Put the steak on a cutting board and cut it up into small pieces.  Place back in skillet with diced onion and saute in a dash of oil until the onions start to go tender.
3.  Fill corn tortillas with shredded lettuce, steak/onion mixture and then top with peppers and cilantro.
4.  Serve immediately, and enjoy!  You can serve rice and beans along side to complete the meal.  Corn salsa, pico or other salsas would go well with these too!

These are so simple yet so yummy and healthy!  Yum-O! :)
