Carne Asada Cheese Crust Tacos

This is one amazing and delicious recipe. The cheese tortilla gets so crispy! I used some New York steak thinly sliced I got from Costco. Highly recommend this one.

Length of time from start to finish: 45 min

Difficulty: Easy

  • 1 lb New York steak thinly sliced
  • 1 lb shredded cheese (you can use your favorite)
  • 1/4 cup crema Mexicana
  • 1 sweet onion
  • Your favorite carne asada seasoning (I recommend Spanglish asadero all-purpose)Here is a link to my seasonings use code Fire10
  • 1/2 lb refried beans
Guacamole Salsa Ingredients:
  • 2 hass avocados
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/4 sweet onion
  • 5 tomatillos
  • Juice of 5 lemons
  • 1/4 bunch cilantro
  • 2 serrano peppers
  • 2 jalapeño peppers
  • Salt to taste

-I did this cook on my Cuisinart griddle. Preheat your griddle to medium-high heat.

-Cut your onions as thin as possible, then season your steak. Make the guacamole salsa next, add everything to a blender nicely cleaned and blend until smooth, add salt to season.

-Then cook your steak for about 1 min per side. They cook quickly as they are really thin.

-Then add a handful of cheese to the griddle and let sit for 3 min before flipping it, the cheese will make the perfect tortilla. Once you flip it leave it for 1 additional min before removing it.

-Then it’s time to assemble, add a tbsp of refried beans, then the New York steak,  crema, guacamole salsa and finally the onions. Then enjoy.

You can use Monterey Jack cheese or any type of cheddar. You can always ask the butcher to cut your steak really thin or use chuck roast thinly sliced as well.
