Chef Notes:

*The possibilities of toppings for these tacos are endless, but here are some suggestions:

  • guacamole (see Gilly Loco™ Recipes)
  • roasted peppers
  • avocado slices
  • onion, diced

*To spice up the marinade, use Gilly Loco Ghost Pepper Salsa™ in place of the Gilly Loco Tomatillo Salsa™.

*The longer the steak marinades, the more tender the steak will become.
