Carne Asada Tacos.
Grilled Carne Asada is perfectly delicious on it’s own, but dress it up in grilled corn tortillas and a bundle of colorful toppings and you’ve got a party!
How to Make Carne Asada Tacos
You’ll want to assemble your toppings ahead of time, including making the easy Pico De Gallo at least 15 minutes before you plan to eat it. Grill the carne asada steak, let it rest and then thinly slice across the grain. Once you’ve sliced your steak, grill the tortillas – only about 30 seconds per side. Then serve everything up family-style letting guests create their perfect tacos. You may want to have a few pitchers of margaritas available too, I doubt anyone will mind. 🙂
