Switch up taco night with these spicy, sweet-’n-savory tacos. The steak is marinated in a spicy chipotle sauce, then topped with a sweet cherry and basil salsa. Is your mouth watering yet? These were a huge hit when I brought them into the office for taste testing, and are a definite must for cherry season...and your summer menu.
