Carne Asada Street Tacos

Beth Pierce


These Carne Asada Street Tacos are loaded with flavorful grilled steak, pickled onions, cilantro, jalapeno rings, queso panela, and drizzled with a chipotle ranch. The end result is truly a taco lovers delight with a unique combination of flavors that work in perfect harmony together. My family loves it when I tell them this is on the menu for the week. I like to serve them with Mexican Shrimp Cocktail and Corn Salad with Easy Lime Vinaigrette.
