  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice, divided and the zest reserved
  • 6 green onions
  • 2 ears of corn, husked
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives
  • 8 small street taco sized flour tortillas


  • Prepare an indoor or outdoor grill over medium-high heat. Sprinkle skirt steak on both sides with salt, pepper and and 1 1/4 teaspoons chipotle powder. Whisk 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil and 1 tablespoon lime juice in 11x7-inch glass dish. Add meat and turn to coat. Marinate for 30 minutes.

Grill vegetables until slightly charred, turning occasionally, about 2 minutes for green onions and 7 minutes for corn. Cut the corn from cob and transfer the kernels to a bowl. Chop green onions and add to corn. Stir in cilantro, chives, lime zest, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon chipotle powder, 1/2 tablespoon oil, and 1 tablespoon lime juice.
