READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Rita1652

Spicy Baja Tuna steaks topped with your favorite guacamole. The Chili Powder That's Smoky and Spicy! has chili's that are quite spicy and the guacamole is a perfect accomodante. My chili powder is very hot and fresh. If need be do double yours accordingly.

This was GREAT! I had high quality fresh steaks 1/2" thick and cooked them to done (rather than sear) and loved the reduction/guac combination. Could tell it was good quality tuna (cannot mask it w/ this recipe). It was great as is but for even more variety next time I think I'll use these steaks to make some elegant fish tacos!
