    Carne Asada Tacos For Summertime Grilling


    Servings: 5

    2 pounds flap steak (or substitute skirt or flank steak)

    10 medium flour tortillas

    1 cup cotija cheese, crumbled

    1 cup cilantro, chopped

    1 cup red onion, chopped


    2 cups chipotle peppers in adobo sauce

    2 cups orange juice

    ½ cup lime juice

    1 tablespoon cumin

    1 tablespoon garlic powder


    1. Combine marinade ingredients in a food processor or blender. In a large, shallow container, pour marinade over steak and marinate for at least 4 and no more than 12 hours.

    2. Bring a charcoal or gas grill to the highest possible heat. Grill steak for 8-10 minutes over direct heat, turning halfway through.

    3. Let steak rest for 5 minutes, then slice into ½-inch strips against the grain.

    4. Arrange desired amounts of steak, cotija, onions, and cilantro on a tortilla.

    5. Enjoy!
