So to celebrate my wonderful husband's 33rd birthday this year, I decided to make a homemade taco fiesta… everything from scratch! I was inspired by the mouth-watering article in this month's Bon Appetit magazine about homemade fish tacos. Now we LOVE fish tacos! But unfortunately all the fish available up here in the far north are rather bony (plus I'd have to catch them myself), or uninspiring frozen fillets from the grocery store… so I decided to make a spiced steak taco version. Very fitting for the hubby's birthday I thought.
Not to brag or anything, but they were AMAZING! So amazing, that I absolutely had to muster up the time to type this post out so I can share it with all of you.
Ok so this post actually contains five recipes! Homemade corn tortillas, Tangy mango salsa, Creamy cilantro-lime coleslaw, Pickled jalapeños, and Chile-spiced marinated steaks. These recipes were made for each other!
Serve the tortillas warm - fresh from the pan, and assemble your tacos with avocado slices, spiced beef strips, a spoonful of creamy slaw, a few fiery pickled jalapeños, and a generous helping of sweet mango salsa. Whoever you serve these to will love you forever ;)
