Hope you all had the most amazing Cinco de Mayo.

The weather finally warmed up in Chicago – I mean, hello, we’re talking sunny 70 degree weather! I know, I couldn’t believe it either considering it was snowing just two weeks ago.

So we quickly took advantage of the real Springtime weather and took Butters out in his dashing sombrero.

Once we got home, we took out a few beers and threw this oh-so-perfect marinated flank steak onto the grill.

The marinade – as simple as it is – is unbelievably flavorful, and it yields the juiciest, most tender flank steak. I could honestly eat the steak all on its own but the warm tortillas and fresh guacamole don’t hurt either.
