Here’s a fun twist on Taco Night – marinated steak tacos with a scrumptious roasted corn relish. The steak takes a few hours to marinate, but cooking and assembly time are pretty quick, approximately 30 to 40 minutes. Good for any night of the week!

Cut the corn off the cobs. Coarsely chop the onions and add them to the corn. Next add the cilantro, lime zest and juice, chile powder, 1 tbsp. of oil, and salt and pepper.
