Total Time 1 hr


  • 1 Lb flap meat 
  • 1 Lb shrimp
  • 10 street taco flour tortillas 

Seasoning Mix

  • 2 tsp ancho Chile (sub chili powder)
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder 
  • 1 tsp cumin 
  • 2 tsp lemon pepper 

Chipotle Sour Cream

  • ¼ cup sour cream 
  • 1 tbsp chipotle sauce 
  • Juice of ½ lime 
  • 1 tsp seasoning mix 
  • Salt to taste 


  • 1 jalapeño pepper 
  • 1 tomato 
  • ¼ red onion 
  • 1 tbsp cilantro 
  • 3 garlic cloves 
  • Salt and pepper to taste 


  • Preheat the grill to 350 degrees.
  • In a bowl, mix the seasoning mix.
  • prep the meat by adding salt and pepper then add the seasoning mix. After this, set aside the meat. Season the shrimp the same way.
  • Char up the ingredients for the salsa by placing the tomatoes, jalapeño and onion on the grill. Once they are charred, remove and add to a food processor, along with the cilantro and garlic. Add salt and pepper to taste.  I left my salsa chunky.
  • Sear up the meat first. Cook the beef 3.5 to 4 min per side, depending how well you want yours cooked and then the shrimp 1.5 min per side.
  • While the meat is resting, make the chipotle salsa. In a bowl, add all the ingredients and mix until fully combined. 
  • Slice the meat against the grain for a more tender bite.
  • Now heat up the tortillas and assemble! Add the chipotle sauce, meat, shrimp and top off with that salsa. Add a squeeze of lime juice to freshen it up. 


You can pretty much use any cut of steak!
