HEAT  remaining dressing in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add onions; cook on medium heat 5 min. Remove from skillet; cover to keep warm. Remove steaks from marinade; discard marinade. Add steaks, in batches, to skillet; cook 2 min. on each side or until medium doneness (160ºF). Return steaks and onions to skillet. Top with avocado sauce. Cook on low heat 1 to 2 min. or until sauce is heated through. Serve topped with sour cream and remaining cilantro.
