This recipe is something that very easy to make, you prep almost all of it the night before and the day of you can just grill it up, slice and serve 🙂

I love cilantro so this has a lot of cilantro in it, but I use angel hair cabbage and made a slaw, then use creamy goat cheese which just made this taco delicious!!

You can some “Roasted Hatch Chilies” I got some sent to me from my cousin’s living in Colorado, they add a wonderful smokey spicy richness to the taco 🙂
