Chipotle Carne Asada


Flap steak (or skirt steak) Garlic cloves Chipotle in adobo sauce finely minced Salt Pepper Ground cumin Lime juice Olive oil


Marinate the beef for an hour, up to overnight. You need to give enough time for the carne asada marinade to work its magic.

Marinate the beef


I like to marinade the beef in a sealable bag inside a bowl. That way any drippings will not go all over a clean fridge. (See picture above.)

Use a sealable bag


Cook the marinated steak on a hot grill on each side until you reach desired doneness.

Cook the meat


After you remove the juicy steak from the grill, let it rest for a few minutes before placing it on a cutting board to slice. This allows the juices to redistribute evenly.

Let it rest


Slice against the grain to make thin strips. Cover the carne asada steak with foil paper to keep warm until you are ready to serve.

Slice the meat


To assemble your Chipotle Carne Asada tacos, place the meat on warm tortillas and top with chopped onion, fresh cilantro, drizzle with fresh-squeezed lime juice, cotija cheese, and salsa.

Assemble and enjoy!
