Recipe Notes

Andy Samberg is right. It is a tough choice between tacos and grilled cheese sandwiches. Both are now firmly established as American comfort food but I do love tacos and this Chipotle Steak version is quick, easy and delicious.

"Who do you think would win in a fight between a grilled cheese sandwich and a taco?"
