In our house, we make tacos with ground beef, ground turkey, fish, or chicken. But today I am going to share my recipe for the king of all tacos in our house: grilled chipotle steak tacos. Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it? Even if you don’t have a grill or the weather isn’t perfect, no problem! You can still make these tacos on a grill pan or under the broiler. Like I said, tacos are one of the most versatile foods.

First, you will need to marinate your steak {see recipe below}. We used a flank steak, but a skirt steak or whatever else you have on hand is fine. We like flank or skirt steak because it’s quick and easy to cook medium rare and also easy to slice thin.

We grilled our marinated flank steak for our tacos on a cast iron grill pan this time since we were out of propane. It worked beautifully, but it does make your house pretty smokey. Phew! Thankfully the evening was warm so it was fine that we had all of the windows and doors open to keep the smoke alarm from blaring. Next time, we will cook the steak outside or under the broiler, but it was still delicious!

Once the meat is done to a beautiful medium-rare (or to your desired doneness) it’s time to build your tacos. You are only limited by your imagination with this one. For our tacos, I filled some Old El Paso Mini Flour Taco Boats and Stand n’ Stuff Taco Shells with steak, tomatoes, green onions, fresh cilantro, homemade guacamole, and sour cream. Let me tell you, they were SO good! Seriously, seriously good!

Tacos aren’t just great on Tuesdays, either. My husband loves his football and we both love football food. Steak tacos, or any tacos, are the perfect game day food. They are fast, easy, and informal enough to eat during the game. Serve with a side of green chile refried beans warmed up with a little sour cream for extra creaminess and it’s time to eat! All you need is a paper plate; napkins optional.

  1. Awesome photos and post!!it looks so yummy!!I’ll definitely going to try this out <3 thanks for sharing

  2. These look delicious!! Our family also loves football and “football food.” The beans and fresh fixings make it even better. Old El Paso is a brand my mother always used, and I follow her lead. Thanks for this great recipe!

    1. Thank you. They were so good! It’s not a spicy recipe so it was good for the kids, too.

      I also only use Old El Paso shells. The taco boats were a huge hit! I’ve seen them but never bought them because I didn’t realize they were soft. They make stuffing and eating a taco so much easier and we’ll definitely be buying them again.
