Chipotle-marinated Iberico skirt steak tacos made by Mike Kubiesa are an exquisite culinary delight that’s simply irresistible. The tender, succulent meat is infused with the perfect balance of smoky and spicy notes, courtesy of that delightful chipotle marinade. Paired with fire-roasted tomatoes, these tacos take the taste to a whole new level, adding a sweet and tangy twist.
