Carne Asada Tacos

by Jackie Alpers on October 4, 2012

Yay! It’s National Taco Day! Here’s a recipe of one of my favorite kinds – Carne Asada, from the book Knack Mexican Cooking by Chelsie Kenyon.

Carne Asada Tacos

Carne Asada Tacos

1⁄2 cup chile sauce
2 limes, juiced
1 pound skirt steak
16 small corn tortillas
8 squares foil (9x9 or larger)
1⁄2 cup onion, diced
1⁄2 cup cilantro, chopped


  1. Whisk together the chile sauce and lime juice and marinate the steak in the mixture 30 minutes.
  2. Grill the steak over medium-high heat until it is cooked through; let rest 5 minutes.
  3. Using a sharp knife cut the meat against the grain into bite-size pieces.
  4. Place 2 tortillas on each piece of foil and top with steak, onions, and cilantro.
  5. Wrap each one up tightly and let rest 1 minute before serving.


Here’s a view of them from the top.  I usually serve these tacos with a side of guacamole.
