Even if it wasn’t Cinco de Mayo, tacos are always a good idea. Of course nothing goes better with a taco than refried beans, homemade salsa and a margarita. Don’t forget the guac!
I marinated the flank steak in the red burrito sauce for about a day after pounding it out to a ½ thickness. The tacos were topped with fresh corn salsa which is explained below. Depending on what is fresh and on hand this delicious topping can vary quite a bit. I love mixing in black beans when I have some on hand too.
Grilled Corn Salsa
- 3-4 ears corn grilled
- 1 green pepper grilled until skin chars
- 1 small onion cut in half and grilled
- 1-2 jalapeños grilled until skin chars
- 2 fresh tomatoes diced
- 4 tbsp fresh cilantro
- 1 grilled red pepper *optional*
Cut corn from the cob and put in large mixing bowl. Peel off charred skin from peppers once cooled. Chop everything into small dice. Combine in bowl and season with salt and pepper.
This looks great… I want tacos now! 🙂
I actually just said out loud, “Oh, yum!” Got a raised eyebrow from the hubbie. LOL. Showed him the pic and he agreed. This looks seriously good. Seriously.
That’s a great salsa recipe. Yum!
Happy cinco de mayo! 🙂
Beautiful photo of a well-crafted meal. Happy Cinco de Mayo!
I have to definitely try out the burrito sauce! Nice round up of recipes and timely for testing out tonight!
The corn salsa sounds great. Going to try it with my ribs tomorrow night. Thanks!
The meal sound delicious and your salsa is to die for. I hope you have a great day. Blessings…Mary
Those tacos with the flank steak is making me go into overdrive. Very delicious looking and now I am successfully hungry yet again after visiting your wonderful blog lol. Love the guac.
Nice take on salsa…it sounds delicious.
The flavors in your salsa must be pretty good with the grilled corn and charred peppers 🙂 I can’t remember the last time I had a taco… must fix that soon!
Delicious. That’s what my meal is going to consist of tonight! I could really use that margarita right now though.
I am definitely going to make this. I love Corn Salsa. So, when can I come over for dinner?
Anytime Samina! Definitely plan on flying though. The main roads to our North and east are all underwater.
Looks great. I love tacos. Happy cinco de mayo.
This is a great blog entry and I love that you’ve included links to your recipes for guacamole, refried beans, salsa, and burrito sauce. That’s some feast!
Mmmm, Mmmm! Looks delicious! I LOVE mexican food. I have to give this corn salsa a try. 🙂
I took the easy way out… homemade quesadillas with pico. And regular homemade lemonade… I was out of blueberries to make the blueberry kind. You came up with one colorful supper!
I love the sound of your grilled corn & black bean salsa. It’s making want to rethink dinner that is already in the oven.. I’ll have to wait till tomorrow. I hate waiting…
I am always looking for ways to change it up a bit. This salsa sounds great and really adds the veggies to the taco. I will probably leave out the jalopenos so my younger one will eat it.
It’s great with red peppers!
I love the ingredients on that corn salsa! really good for a soft taco.
I’m liking the look of this Rufus! I’ll have to try it! Is it ever too late for Cinco de Mayo?
