It is hard to find people who do not love steak. It is an important ingredient in many of the world's cuisines and is definitely so in Mexican cooking. Beef was introduced to the new world by the Spanish, but it caught on in a big way once it arrived and many traditional Mexican recipes were adapted to include this new ingredient.
Grilled steak is one of the most popular fillings for tacos, just as it is in many Mexican dishes. If you are interested in trying a different way to enjoy steak, why not try this carne asada tacos recipe? It is incredibly easy to make and incredibly delicious.
This is a very simple recipe, relying on the quality of its ingredients alone; make sure to use the best skirt steak or flank steak you can find for this recipe as well as the freshest tortillas and vegetables and this recipe will turn out wonderfully. There is really no such thing as a bad carne asada taco, however, so do not feel that you have to break the bank either.
1 ½ pounds skirt steak or flank steak, grilled and cut into thin strips
12 corn tortillas
1 white onion, diced
1 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped
2-4 jalapeno peppers, diced
Lime wedges and salsa, for serving

Warm the tortillas over a gas flame (you can use a microwave if you have an electric stove). Fill each tortilla with steak and top with diced onion, jalapeno, and cilantro.

Since they are essentially sandwiches, tacos are very easy to make; and that is a wonderful thing, especially when they are as good as this carne asada tacos recipe.
