When it comes to dinner duty in our home, Naomi and I are pretty good about rotating. So often, one of us is knee-deep in a project or helping the boys with their schoolwork, so that means one of us steps up and do back-to-back dinners. And if that person is me, I tend to default to something fairly easy that I know the boys will like. Or at least, won’t complain about too much. Pizza or tacos. Who’s with me here?
I am a little pizza-d out lately, so I decided on Taco Thursday. And the family didn’t argue. When I usually make tacos for the boys, 90% of the time that means ground beef/turkey or chicken. So to switch things up a bit, and because time was of the essence, and also because I love grilling, I did a search for some taco ideas and came across this recipe for Skirt Steak Tacos with Roasted Tomato Salsa, by the always reliable Bobby Flay. And I’m glad I found it!
A quick run to the grocery store for some skirt steak while the grill heated up, dinner was on the table in 30 minutes. I was a little afraid that the salsa would turn out a little too spicy for the boys due to the serrano chiles. These boys like spicy way more than I do, but the heat level was definitely on the higher end. I let them figure out a way to balance that heat and they decided upon big ol’ heaps of sour cream, and that did the trick.
No doubt this taco recipe will be on our summer grilling menu going forward. It’s quick, tasty, fun, and a huge hit with the entire family. Thanks Bobby!
