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.
Marinate the steak for a few hours. Chop cilantro, onions, and lime wedges.
Cook the steak quickly, warm the tortillas and serve!
