Tips

If you’re looking for an alternative to steak, the marinade is delicious on chicken, too. For a vegetarian version, grilled mushrooms, peppers, or squash would all be delicious alternatives.

I’ll put pretty much anything in a corn tortilla and call it a taco. I’m happiest when somebody brings a basket of tortillas to my table so I can pile my eggs, grilled meat, pickled veggies, or beans in one for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Over the years, I’ve developed a dozen different taco recipes, but this one takes top honors. You can do as much or as little as you’d like for this recipe. No time to make the mango salsa? You can buy some already made. Also, the meat can marinate overnight, and the cabbage slaw can be made a day in advance, too.

PREPARATION TIME 45 minutes (plus 1 hour to marinate)

COOKING TIME 10 minutes
