  • 1 lb High River Angus® skirt steak sliced in thin steaks
  • 1-12 oz bottle Mexican beer I like Pacifico, Sol or Montejo
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 sausage link Smoky Ridge™ Yo Amigo Sausage the package comes with 5 links
  • 1 medium white onion chopped
  • 1 ½ bell peppers in several colors
  • 1 tablespoon olive or canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • Black pepper to taste
  • 1 bag of 24 tortillas taqueras*
  • Salsa of your choice. Try my red salsa green salsa, or avocado salsa
  • 10 key limes optional


  • Place the Angus beef in a bowl, pour in the beer and salt. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Remove the chorizo casing and chop into small pieces. Set aside.
  • Finely chop onion and bell peppers.
  • Warm up oil in a big pan and sauté the onion until soft, approx 2 minutes. Add bell peppers, cook for 5 more minutes.
  • Cook chopped chorizo on a cast iron grill pan for 5 minutes or until cooked. Transfer chorizo to the vegetables and mix well. Set aside.
  • Grill Angus beef, depending on thickness it can take approx 2-3 minutes per side. Chop cooked beef and add to the chorizo-vegetable mix. Add garlic salt and pepper. Cook for 2 more minutes.
  • Serve in tacos with salsa and a squeeze of lime juice, if you like.
