1/1 Photo of Smokey Chipotle Steak Tacos
Bhappy's kitchen's Note:
Each bite of the smokey, chili chipotle marinated steak is a burst of flavour with the lime adding another dimension of festivity in your taco. Absolutely delicious! We have travelled quite a bit around Mexico, as well as taken cooking classes. Mexico is so diverse and the food so regional that every area you travel into allows you to experience different cuisine completely. This steak taco recipe makes us feel like we are right in the heart of it!
