Get their minds off of work: Day 2

I think this was the staff’s favourite day. “Make your own soft taco day” is not something that usually goes on at work. The June 2012 issue of Bon Appetit just happened to cover Taco recipes. Score! I marinated some flank steak in olive oil and cilantro, a little salt and paper, and grilled the steak on an indoor grill. Made a bunch of condiments (cheese, guac, tomatoes, salsa, limes, jalape├▒os and guajillo chili salsa) and bought some tortillas. Now, can someone help me out with the tortillas? Short of making them yourself, where do you find good tortillas in Ottawa? The ones I got at Metro were passable but not the quality I was looking for. By the way, everyone quite liked the guajillo salsa. It had a nice smokey flavour with a bit of a bite. Wikipedia says that┬áthe guajillo chili’s thin, deep-red flesh has a green tea flavor with berry overtones. Its fruits are large and mild in flavor, with only a small amount of heat (rating 2,500 to 5,000 on the Scoville Scale.) I think “taco day” will be remembered for a while.
