As soon as the clock strikes midnight on Mother’s Day, I’m already bringing up Father’s Day in the conversation. Okay, it does sound a tad selfish but I always make sure my wife has an awesome Mother’s Day and she lovingly reciprocates when dad’s day rolls around.

I cook every day for the family so for Father’s Day we’ll usually all go out for breakfast or brunch, but I love it when someone cooks dinner for me. It’s a great feeling to just kick back, relax and watch other people in my kitchen. It doesn’t have to be an elaborate dinner, sometimes simple is better and these easy skirt steak tacos are one of my favorite things to eat. Skirt steak tastes great after being cooked over a high heat on the grill. Just season it with your favorite rub and cook for about 4 minutes per side. I like my steak medium rare but you can cook yours longer if you prefer it more well done.

The toppings are almost as important as the meat. Salsa is a must have as is cheese, and Cacique® Cotija Cheese is the perfect choice. It has a mild salty flavor and crumbles just like Feta cheese, you can add it to salads, burgers or just eat it on its own and it has so much flavor so a little goes a long way! I also love fresh cilantro on my tacos and once I have all three of these flavors together- and maybe an ice cold beer- I’m a very happy person. Finish the whole dish with a drizzle of the amazing avocado crema. This sauce is so simple but the Cacique® Crema Mexicana has a distinct flavor that I prefer over regular sour cream, and it only has four ingredients!

I can’t wait for Father’s Day and these skirt steak tacos, I must remember to make sure my wife reads this post!
