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.

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.


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.
