I made the for my family tonight and followed the recipe as it is written right down to taco assembly. This was great! I love the spicy steak with the creamy queso fresco. I will definitely make the again.

Great recipe. Tacos were easy to make and quick. Though i do not think you need 20 baby peppers, with 10 is good.

Loved this recipe... We grilled the steak and tortillas but broiled the peppers. The lime mayo was amazing and complemented the spicy steak really well. Will def make again!

This was delicious. I grilled the steak and added a little cilantro and arugula because I had it on hand. The lime and garlic mayo added great flavor. A very hearty, flavorful easy meal. Use a good quality tortilla - it makes a difference. Will definitely make this again.

I loved the technique for heating and softening the corn tortillas by placing them directly on the burner. I plan to do that often because it saves a pan or saves paper towel for heating in the microwave. I used this recipe more as a template: leftover t-bone steck, sauted leftover red bell pepper strips and onion. I added the lime to some leftover Mexican crema and topped everything with bottled salsa and queso fresco as the recipe suggested. Delicious and easy.

Very good! I grilled the steak, but broiled the peppers. And I agree that 20 peppers is too many. Loved the lime mayo.

We loved the lime mayo sauce. Didn't need 20 peppers but have leftovers for later. We also used flour tortillas as they were larger. We also used guacamole which went very well with the dish. If making for a crowd I heated the tortillas ahead on time on a hot grill and wrapped in foil, wrapped in cloth towels. Heat the oven ahead of time to 375 and turn it off. Then put the bundle of tortillas on a cookie sheet and they will stay warm for a long time until ready to use.

Easy summer supper, really liked the lime crema. Followed the spirit of the recipe, subbing poblano for baby peppers. Used fat free sour cream instead of mayo & our homemade salsa (1c seeded & diced tomato; 3/4 c diced avocado; 1/4c diced onion; 1tbs diced serrano; 1tbs lime juise; 1 minced garlic clove). Served with margaritas, Trader Joe's refried black beans and grilled ears of corn. Very good.

This was very good. The lime mayo added an interesting depth. Watch out for the spice in the chipotle powder!

Alterations: Used smoked paprika instead of regular paprika, used cayenne pepper instead of chipotle, used flour tortillas instead of corn, used Cholula hot sauce instead of salsa, and probably used a little bit more of the cheese. This was good, I feel that there were aspects I would repeat again for sure, but not this exact recipe. What I'm taking away from this is the lime mayo and the use queso fresco.

I was surprised at how quickly these tacos came together! They were very delicious. The only changes I made was to use 10 baby bell peppers instead of 20, as other reviews stated (definitely a good idea unless you want some leftover roasted peppers for other reasons) and to change the lime sauce just slightly. I used 2 tbsp of lite mayo and 4 tbsp of nonfat plain greek yogurt, then added the lime. It was delicious! I used fresh mango salsa which also helped tame the spiciness of the steak.
