These are delicious - by far the best taco recipe I've found on this site. I made the pineapple salsa and the combination was great. I marinated the meat for about 6 hours, next time I will go longer. I will be making this often!
The flank steak tacos and grilled pineapple avocado salsa were a big hit. I sauteed a large onion as well as a yellow, orange and red pepper in a tablespoon of butter and a tablespoon of olive oil as an addition to this meal. I had time to marinate the meat overnight rather than just 2 hours and the flavor of the rub was incredible. My husband put the corn tortillas and some low fat, low carb wheat tortillas on the grill so everyone could choose their favorite. My son and husband took leftovers to work and had their co-workers drooling. I am definitely sharing this recipe.
