Number of Servings: 4


    1 small tomato, chopped (3/4 cup)
    1/4 cup snipped fresh cilantro
    1 lime
    1/2 cup (2 oz) shredded Mexican cheese blend, divided
    1 teaspoon Southwestern Seasoning Mix
    2 garlic cloves, pressed
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    2 boneless beef top loin steaks, cut 1 inch thick (about 1 1/2 pounds)

Continue cooking until steaks reach desired doeness and cheese is melted.
