Carne Asada Tacos
1 – 1 ½ lb of pre-marinated Carne Asada (you can buy this at the grocery store in the meat section or a specialty meat shop)
1 medium tomato, chopped
¼ small red onion, minced
2 Tbsp of cilantro, minced
2 tsp of fresh lime juice
¼ jalapeno, finely minced (or a few dashes of Tabasco, if you forgot to buy a jalapeno at the store like I did!)
½ avocado, sliced
White cheddar cheese, shredded
6 small yellow corn tortillas
1 can of black beans
Heat grill over med-high heat. Grill steak on each side for 2-3 minutes. The steak should still be pink in the middle. Slice steak against the grain so it’s easy to chew.
Mix tomato, onion, cilantro, lime juice, jalapeno/Tabasco and salt together.
Heat beans in the microwave for 2-3 minutes. Stir a few dashes of Cholula into the beans. Grill tortillas on each side for about 1-2 minutes, to warm them up and to give them nice grill marks.
Assemble tacos by filling tortilla with steak, Pico, avocado and cheese. Serve with beans. Top beans with cheese and left over cilantro.
