Don’t put your grills away yet – there is still plenty of grilling season left! These Grilled Chipotle Steak Tacos with Grilled Corn Salsa are super flavorful and a tasty grilling recipe.
While some people start thinking of fall as soon as August hits, I like to think we are still in the thick of summer. It’s still hot. There are still weeks before school starts again. And no one has put their dock away for the year yet. So let’s just hold our horses on the pumpkin muffins/lattes/bars/whatever and just embrace the rest of this summer.
Of course this means grilling all of the things. I try to plan our meals around the grill during the summer months and this recipe is absolutely no different. Not only is the steak grilled, but so are some of the vegetables for the salsa. Winning!
The chipotle steak is super flavorful, as it is marinated in a mixture of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, garlic, onion, lime juice, and spices. The main flavor comes from the adobo sauce and gives a smoky and spicy kick. I’m always a little shy with the amount of chipotle adobo sauce that I use because my taste buds are as wimpy as they come, but I include a range in the recipe of how much to use. If you have ninja taste buds, add the full amount.
To top off the chipotle steak tacos, I made a grilled corn salsa. I simply grilled a few ears of corn, a jalapeno, and red onion, and chopped it up with some tomatoes and cilantro. I love the extra boost of flavor that grilling gives to the salsa, which we not only served on top of the tacos but alongside for chip dipping. You could stop there (because that’s all these tacos really need) or you could drizzle with some crema or a dollop of guac.
This recipe for Grilled Chipotle Steak Tacos makes enough tacos for about 4 people, but if you’re cooking for two (or two big humans and one and a half small humans like us) I’d highly recommend making the entire amount and then using the leftovers for steak nachos the next day. Just saying!
