Carne asada is a sizzlin' and authentic Mexican dish that can be made with thin sliced ribeye or well-marbled steak. It can be prepared as a main dish or side ingredient. We decided to pack ours into corn tortillas for Taco Night!

Carne Asada Tacos with Chipotle Cream Sauce
Carne Asada Ingredients
 1 lb thin sliced ribeye or thin sliced well marbled steak
 Juice from 1 lime
 Juice from 1 orange
 1 tbsp garlic powder
 2 tsp meat tenderizer
 1 tsp cinnamon
 1 tsp cracked black pepper
 1 tbsp olive oil
Chipotle Cream Sauce
 1 cup sour cream or plain Greek yogurt
 3 chipotle chilies
 1 clove garlic
 Juice from 1 lime
Taco Extras
 Corn Tortillas
 Chopped cilantro
 Diced onions
 Guacamole
 Jalapenos
 Salsa
1

Combine all of the carne asada ingredients in a bowl and marinate at room temperature if you plan on making the tacos soon. Otherwise marinate up to overnight.

2

To make the chipotle cream sauce, combine all of the ingredients in a blender or food processor and puree until smooth. Set aside.

3

When the steak is well marinated, remove from the marinade and dry off the meat. Heat the grill to high heat. Apply nonstick oil and sear the steak for about a minute and a half per side. Due to the thin cut, it shouldn’t take too long. Let the steak rest then chop into bite sized pieces.

4

(Optional) Grill your tortillas for about a minute per side or until they begin to char a bit.

5

Place the steak on the corn tortilla, top with cilantro, onions salsa and your chipotle cream sauce and enjoy!
