Heather’s Tried-and-True Tips

  • Slice the steak thinly for the best texture and distribution in the tacos.
  • Don’t overcook the steak when reheating; it’s already cooked, so you’re just warming it through.
  • Add a mix of colorful bell peppers for a vibrant and visually appealing dish.
  • If you like some heat, add a chopped jalapeño or a sprinkle of red pepper flakes to the vegetable mixture.
  • Toast the tortillas slightly on an open flame for a smoky flavor.
