These Steak Tacos with Pico de Gallo are a favorite in our house. They are easy to make, everyone loves them and the fact that they don’t need a lot of prep makes them a staple in our house Steak, tomatoes, lime & cilantro make these simple & so good!
Every night in our house is busy, so I always go for meals that I can make in under 20 minutes, like these Steak Tacos. The kids love them and I love that they look and taste like I’ve spent hours making them. 😉
Plus, we love tacos and really anything with a little salsa on top, like our favorite salsa chicken made in the crockpot. My favorite is making Pico de Gallo for a topping… I end up eating a bowl of it for a snack, too.
Tonight I made my own Pico de Gallo, which is so much easier than people think.
