They were one of my kids first foods as babies. I love to eat them sliced in sandwiches and salads or mashed into yummy guacamole. I found this great and super easy recipe using Skirt Steak and be sure to check out these other amazing Amazing Skirt Steak Recipe- Barefoot Contessa Style
Grilled Skirt Steak Tacos with Spicy Guacamole is a Rick Bayless recipe. If you have not heard of Rick, I was first introduced to him on FoodNetwork several years ago but he owns a few restaurants in Chicago that I have been to and has in the last couple of years started selling his products commercially in the grocery stores under Frontera Grill.
I digress, anyway, this was a quick and easy way to get dinner on the table. Plus there is really no clean up if you grill outside.
Grilled Skirt Steak Tacos
This was so easy and it smelled so great on the grill. I added some tomatoes to my guacamole for extra flavor and the kids added some shredded cheese to their tacos.
WHAT TYPE OF TORTILLAS WITH SKIRT STEAK TACOS
We used corn tortillas that I wrapped in tinfoil and placed on the grill to warm up. You could also grill them if you wish for more smokey flavoring.
WHAT TO TOP SKIRT STEAK TACOS WITH
Guacamole of course… I did not make the guacamole very spicy so I eliminated the hot pepper for the kids.
This is just a fresh way to enjoy a Tex-Mex meal and take a break from the regular ground meat and taco seasoning meal.
Add a Margarita and it feels like you are enjoying a meal in Mexico.
