Do you love avocados? Then you will love the new Avocados From Mexico recipe website “Recipes From Avocado Lovers”, where you can submit your favorite avocado recipes and share you avocado love with with other foodies like you. I  have always loved avocados. 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 from Recipes from Avocado Lovers.
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 out side.
 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. 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. 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.
