*I bought “carne asada” steak at a local Mexican market. It’s sliced very thin and cooks up quick! You can use flank or skirt steak. Adjust cooking time according to thickness of steak.

For a more non-traditional street taco add other toppings like avocado, cheese or pico de gallo. If you want more spice top with your favorite hot sauce.
