Carne asada tacos are delicious, juicy, and tender Mexican street tacos loaded with steak bites that everyone will be raving about on Taco Tuesday!
- Heat the tortillas one-by-one in an ungreased cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat for 30 seconds per side. You can also heat them directly on a gas burner for a few seconds to get char marks on the edges.
- Divide the chopped carne asada into each tortilla and top with onions, cotija cheese, and cilantro. Add a squeeze of lime juice, if desired.
How to store: Store the ingredients for your carne asada tacos separately (freshly cooked carne asada will last 3-4 days in the refrigerator). Otherwise, the meat and veggies will make the tortillas soggy. If you must make your carne asada tacos to go for work or school, consider adding a single piece of dry lettuce between your filling and tortilla to prevent the tortillas from becoming soggy.
How to reheat: You can heat carne asada filling in the microwave, oven, or on the stovetop. In the oven, wrap the meat in aluminum foil and bake for 5-10 minutes at 375F. On the stove, heat in a covered pan with a splash of water on medium heat.
