Steak Taco Recipe

Celebrate Cinco de Mayo With Steak Tacos!

There's something about the warm weather that makes me crave Mexican food. Spicy salsa, cooling guacamole, crunchy chips, and stuffed tacos. Everything is eaten with your hands and it's just so darn delicious. Recently, I gave into a craving and made these scrumptious steak tacos.

This sort of meal is great for entertaining. You simply make (or buy) the fixings and lay them out on the dining table. Then, you grill the beef and let everyone assemble their own tacos. I like this recipe because it doesn't require any marinade time. The meat is rubbed with a flavorful mixture of spices and only takes about 10 minutes to cook.
