Carne Asada Tacos {Grilled Beef Tacos}

Smoky, marinated, grilled Carne Asada is chopped up and added to a charred tortilla before being topped with ripe avocado slices, pico de gallo, cilantro, and whatever else your heart desires!
Author Rebecca Lindamood


  • 1 batch Carne Asada rested
  • corn or flour tortillas warmed or charred over the grill or open flame
  • lime wedges

Garnishes that are optional but tasty:

  • Pico de gallo
  • avocado slices
  • additional sprigs of cilantro
  • thinly sliced radishes


  • Slice the Carne Asada diagonally against the grain. Turn the slices 90 degrees and chop across them, yielding small bites of beef that are no larger than 1/2-inch in any direction. Pile the beef in a bowl. Juices will accumulate at the bottom of the bowl.
  • Stack two warmed corn tortillas on a plate, pile with some of the chopped carne asada, drizzle with some of the accumulated juices from the bottom of the bowl holding the beef, and squeeze a lime wedge over the meat. Top with any or all of the optional garnishes. Serve immediately.
