Carne Asada Street Tacos

 

Street tacos are AMAZING!  If you have never eaten one you must give this a try.  My husband has raved about these for years.  He wanted to try and make them ourselves.  So easy, I mean really really easy!  If you are lucky enough to have a Hispanic market or grocery near you it is a MUST that you purchase fresh corn tortillas.  It makes a huge difference.  You cannot even begin to compare fresh tortillas to the prepacked store purchased tortillas.

    Love this. Cannot find any taco trucks this time of year in minnesota. I have made with skirt steak and tried with chicken. Both are amazing. Easy to do and quick. I make on a regular stove, looking forward to trying on the grill this summer.
