Tacos de alambre, the skillet version of Mexican beef kebabs (alambres), features steak, bacon, peppers, onion, tomato and a blanket of melted cheese. If you like, serve the tacos with additional toppings to add fresh notes to balance the richness. We particularly liked sliced avocado, a squeeze of lime juice, shredded cabbage and fresh cilantro.




Don't be alarmed by the number of jalapeños in this recipe. With all of the seeds removed, the dish is quite mild. But if you'd like some chili heat, leave the seeds in as many chilies as you like.

This recipe received rave reviews from the family! I will definitely be making it again. I prepped everything during the day when I was taking a break from work, so it was perfect for a weeknight meal. I did not make any substitutions, and like the recipe states, the dish is not very spicy even with all of the jalapeños.

Made this for our "Taco Tuesday." Very filling, great flavor. Might use two onions next time. Served with a bit of salsa verde and sliced avocados. Nice use of flank steak.
