Chili Lime Flank Steak Tacos

Spice up your next taco night with this easy yet delicious recipe!

Happy taco Tuesday! We take taco night very seriously over here. My favorite part about tacos is how versatile they are.. you can make a different recipe every time just by changing up your protein and topping options. I realized I don’t have many red meat recipes on my blog, so I figured I’d try some steak tacos.

These were super easy, I just marinaded some flank steak for 5 hours (the longer, the better) – grilled the steak, sliced it really thin and threw it in a taco with some cabbage (for some crunch) and my favorite homemade yogurt cilantro lime sauce. PRO TIP: get trader joe’s corn salsa and throw that on there too, it’s so zesty and flavorful!

Living in Texas, corn tortillas have grown on me. I use corn or siete food’s coconut flour tortillas. Of course, you can use flour or whatever else you’d like for yours!
