Happy national taco day! Just kidding….that’s not true. But we truly do believe in celebrating tacos everyday, or at least every other day. The lovely Mrs. Kelp and I originally met in the great state of Texas–Austin to be exact–and one of the stipulations for citizenry of this particular city is that you partake in tacos at least once a day. And the options abound! Breakfast tacos, chicken & waffle tacos, even dessert tacos. It’s true.
And I do believe that this common love is one of many things that truly solidified our friendship…well, tacos and french fries. Right, Lauren? And maybe wine…
Which brings us to carne asada. Many of you may disagree, but I do believe the shining star of this recipe is the marinade. It’s amazing. Basically a cilantro style pesto. So easy and so versatile. I actually even used the leftovers as a salad dressing for the rest of the week! So I beg of you, don’t make the mistake of tossing any extra…you’ll regret it.
So go celebrate Monday with tacos and margaritas–I give you permission!
