To start with I had to make a couple of sub's. The market was having a sale on fresh corn but when I got there (3 days into the week long sale) they had completely sold out! So, I used frozen kernels. Them no poblano's around here so used jalapeno. OK, that said these came out amazing. I have been craving something Tex-Mex for awhile and this really hit the spot. Used the last flank steak in the freezer and it had been tenderized so the beef was flavorful and easy eat. The salsa packed a great flavor delight also. All in all Houston, we have a keeper.
