Summer is almost at an end, the kids are going back to school but we’re trying to stretch those summer days with family as much as we can. One of our favorite things to do in summer is grilling. Putting steaks on the grill and letting the smell of smoky churrasco fill the air brings me so many memories of summers spent back home in Guatemala at my grandparents granja. Mi abuelo Francis loved grilling and he would go beyond grilling steaks, he also loved to grill mushrooms that we would buy at the mercado in the small town of San Juan Sacatepequez. Some of the most fond memories of my childhood are tied to that small farm, playing with my cousins, exploring, taking a walk down to the waterfall and looking for mushrooms.

This weekend as we got ready for the kids to start school we made some delicious churrasco tacos. As the steaks sizzled in the grill I shared with my kids those childhood memories and told them all about the abuelo’s granja back in Gutemala.

For this recipe I got some inspiration by the churrasco with chimichurri sauce recipe I found on the Vive Mejor website I decided to create one of my own. I love that this recipe uses Knorr bouillon to season the steak and the chimichurri sauce. Knorr was a brand that my family, from mom to grandmother, have used in their kitchens always and creating recipes using Knorr and passing those down to my kids is part of our family’s cooking tradition now.

    Grilling is one of my favorite things about summer too. Thankfully, here in the south, we can grill just about all year long. I’ll have to add skirt steak to my grocery list so I can make your tacos. They look amazing.

    The tacos look great!!
    The problem with using Knorr’s is they have very little actual chicken in their chicken broth. Got anything better than this chemically laden chicken (sic) broth?

  20. Valene Lee

    One of my favorite and easy make foods I love to eat. Can’t wait to have this for dinner!

  21. Chanel | Cultural Xplorer

    These tacos sound absolutely amazing! I think I might attempt to make these for dinner tonight because they look so mouthwateringly delicious! My family will be so happy when I make these!
