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!

  • 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


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
