Grilled Beet Tacos

Continuing with my quest to further develop my taste for beets, I decided to give grilling a try.  This technique retained the crisp quality of the vegetable while enhancing it's sweet flavor.  Incorporating them into a taco meant that I would have another appetizer option for summer entertaining.
