What if I told you I had the perfect outdoor grilling recipe that suits all tastes?

I do! What do you think of tacos? I think highly of tacos. Sometimes it’s a matter of throwing things together over the stove, in the oven, or even in the microwave. Although when company is coming over for a summer barbecue, sometimes you have to take tacos to the next level! About a month or so ago, Cassidy discovered some incredible local corn tortillas and decided to brush them with olive oil and grill them before turning them into tacos! The result was delicious for all of us, unsurprisingly.

Sometimes you have no choice but to get outside and GRILL your dinner.

When you think of outdoor entertaining and grilling, and how to prepare your shopping lists, menus, and backyards for a get together or barbecue, what do you think of most? I think of fresh and crisp foods. I think of avocado. And I think of salsa.

HERDEZ® Salsa Casera is fresh, delicious, and centered around delicious flavors. It’s perfect for enjoying time with your family and friends. When it’s a party in the summer, or even a gathering for Game Day in the fall, we love salsa.

As much as I do love dipping chips into salsa, I love it as a key ingredient in our grilled corn tacos. The taste is fresh and tart – and ties all of the beef, cheese, and vegetable tastes all together. I personally spoon about four or five tablespoons per one taco. That way you get the great taste, as well as the other tastes in the mix. Then use sour cream or more shredded cheese as a topping and dig in! We buy our HERDEZ® Salsa Casera at Walmart as well as our ribeye steaks. One stop shopping.

The other night, my father-in-law and brother-in-law were due over for dinner and we had spent our day sweating at a local theme park in New Hampshire, while my husband was at work. Needless to say, we needed to get something good on the table, and fast, for a nice outdoor dinner we could have while watching the kids play in the yard. First we took the corn tortillas, brushed them with olive oil, and grilled them into perfect hard tacos – ready for their tasty toppings.

Then we grilled them for about 3-4 minutes on each side until they got crisp.

Then it was time for an array of fresh ingredients, including grilled ribeye and HERDEZ® Salsa Casera.

Now it’s recipe time!

    1. Grilled tacos – who knew?? It’s so good! My stomach is growling right now, but that could be from nearly 24 hours without a meal. Traveling is no joke!

  2. Hi Tamara, those tacos do look good! And that ribeye looks even better! I must confess that I’ve only ever attempted to make tacos once and they were a complete disaster, probably because I had no idea what I was doing. Maybe I’ll have to give it another go.


  3. Our kids love tacos…me, less so. Though I love the idea of grilling the tortilla shells. I would throw them right on top of a salad any day. And salsa is a staple in our house. The Husband and I love to share the BIG jug. Someday the kids will understand.

    1. Interesting that it’s less so for you! I have grown to love them more and more with age. Grilled shells are perfect. The consistency is awesome for my husband who loves crunch, but doesn’t love the store-bought hard shells.

    1. Oh yes! It’s all Cassidy. We have local corn tortillas that are so much better than anything store-bought, but they’re not hard. He likes crunch. Enter in these!

  4. I have never had a grilled taco before but it sounds amazing! Honestly, salsa makes everything better! 🙂 Will have to check out this brand, it’s new to me! -Erin of stay at home

    1. I hadn’t either! My husband comes up with this stuff. Soft tacos are too soft. Hard tacos are never good enough quality. So he makes his own hard tacos and voila!!

  5. Boy does that look delicious. We can grill year round where we live so this is something I need to put on our menu rotation. We are all salsa lovers in our house too.

  6. Now that’s how you make a taco. This is why I love summer because we can grill everything pretty much! Now what I have not done is grilled an entire steak and used that. I do use steak taco meat for my taco’s though. So I guess I’m cheating!

  7. These look amazing! I’m a San Diego girl, and I can attest that these tacos are done right! We love Herdez in our home too. It’s got great flavor.
