If you like steak, peppers, and onions you will love steak tacos. I have wanted to make steak tacos for a long time and tonight I finally went through with it. I got this recipe from Cooking Light and once I saw the ingredients I had a feeling it was going to be good. I was surprised at how little time I actually took to make them. Just a little time for prep work, a little sautéing and they are on the table. The vegetables are first stir-fried, then the steak is sautéed for a few minutes and then tossed with a few amazing ingredients. The major flavor enhancers in this recipe are the lime juice and fresh garlic. If you don’t like steak feel free to try this recipe with shrimp instead. I serve these tacos with a side dish of flavored rice.
