How delicious do these look?!
Sometimes you just need some Mexican spices in your life, and nothing but cumin, lime and cilantro will do.
This was exactly the craving I was experiencing the evening these steak tacos of deliciousness came into my life. I knew I wanted something that would be simple to make, but would still give me the tangy, creamy, and spicy flavors I so desperately wanted.
My thought process was as follows: What’s simple to make? Tacos. How do I combine everything else I’m craving? TACO SLAW!
I’ve never made any type of Mexican coleslaw before, but I figured it couldn’t be too difficult. After all, it’s just your typical coleslaw with a few different spices mixed in, right?
Well, thankfully, I was right – and it was ridiculously easy to put together! And so. Darn. Delicioso. 😍
For this steak taco recipe, I utilized my most favorite of ingredient substitutions – using Greek yogurt for sour cream! If you haven’t tried this before, I’d highly recommend it. Not only is yogurt much less calorie dense, but the flavor is a lot lighter as well. It’s delightful.
Warning: Subbing in Greek yogurt for sour cream can get addicting. You’ve been warned.
Truly though, these steak tacos are all about the slaw. You could substitute the steak for any protein of your choice – chicken, fish, tofu – and it would still be just as amazing with this slaw. The creaminess of the yogurt and acidity of the lime come together beautifully to create this true star of this show, y’all.
So the next time you’re craving some spicy, delicious Mexican food, give these a try! Buen provecho!
We cooked our steak on the grill, but you can definitely use a stove-top skillet instead.
