The first step is to form a little taco bowl. You can find these taco bowls pre-shaped at the store or you can make your own! Simply place a tortilla on the underside of a muffin tray and bake it for 10 minutes at 350 degrees F.

Let it cool completely. After it cools, remove it from the muffin tray and admire your work! It now holds its bowl shape!

Next, it’s time to marinate the steak! I used a simple marinade of HERDEZ® Salsa Verde, olive oil, lemon juice and some minced garlic. Simple & flavorful!

We love to grill outside during the warmer months. My husband really enjoys getting out there and grilling everything from steak to chicken to veggies and more!

While the steak was cooking, the girls and I love to play in the yard. My older daughter absolutely loves to draw shapes on the sidewalk with chalk. Here she is making some of her favorite shapes: hearts!

She also loves to blow bubbles and then chase them! Of course, wearing her unicorn helmet makes everything more fun around here! :)

Before we knew it, the steak was all done. Check out how gorgeous this flank steak is looking after just a short time on the grill.
*Tip: After the steak is cooked, let it sit for at least 10 minutes before cutting it. When you do cut it, slice it across the grain to create pieces that are deliciously tender!
