Super Tasty Tacos: Guajillo Chile Rubbed Steak Tacos
Everybody loves taco night right? And during the summer when you can get out and grill, it's even better. This is a very simple recipe that will really amp up your tacos. All you have to do is get your hands on some dried guajillo chiles, and you're halfway there.
The guajillo rub gives the steak a deep, earthy flavor with a hint of spice. It's a rich, enchanting flavor that will tingle a bit, but won't be so spicy as to get in the way of enjoying it. We mixed ours with an ancho chile and a chipotle chile to give it an even more complex flavor. If you want a little more spice, feel free to amp it up with some jalapeño or habanero.
We served these tacos with our world's best guacamole, the recipe for which we'll share next week. So make sure you stop back for that!
Making the Dish
2 - 3 dried guajillo chiles
1 dried ancho or chipotle chile (optional)
2 cloves garlic
1 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper
1 lb hanger steak, trimmed
This goes great with a nice cool sour cream and some guacamole!
