Chipotle-Lime Steak Tacos Directions

  1. Heat an 8" skillet over high heat; add garlic, and cook, turning as needed, until charred all over, about 12 minutes. Transfer to a blender with oil, chipotles, small chopped onion, juice, and purée until smooth. Transfer to a 9" x 13" baking dish, and add steaks, tossing to coat in marinade; season generously with salt and pepper. Cover with plastic wrap and let marinate at room temperature for 1 hour or in the refrigerator for up to 4 hours.
  2. Build a medium-hot fire in a hybrid grill or heat a gas grill to medium heat. Brush marinade from steaks and transfer to the grill; cook, flipping once, until charred and cooked to desired doneness, about 8 minutes for medium. Transfer steaks to a cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, place the remaining onion and jalapeño on the grill and cook, turning as needed, until charred and softened, about 10 minutes. Transfer the vegetables to a cutting board and finely chop transfer into a serving bowl. Finely chop the steaks and toss with the grilled vegetables in a bowl.
