Mexican Street Tacos
Street Tacos are a wonderful way to enjoy your grill during the summer.

The steak is marinated overnight for the best flavor, so be sure to plan ahead before you make this recipe.

The steak is grilled until tender, then chopped up for the street tacos.

Although this Mexican street tacos recipe uses steak flap meat, but I’ve made this same version with chicken breasts and it’s just as tasty!
