Carne Asada Tacos with Mango Avocado Salsa
It starts with the star of the show, our Premium Carne Asada
2lbs USDA CHOICE CARNE ASADA – Van Lith Ranch
1 cup Fermented Ancho/Guajillo Chili Paste
1 can El Pato Jalapeno Sauce
Juice of 3 Limes
A few dashes of Hot Sauce
Salt, Pepper, Garlic
Put it together:
Using a meat mallet, pound out the Carne Asada to tenderize your Beef.
Mix all ingredients together and pour marinade over Beef. Marinate in refrigerator for a few hours. I wouldn't recommend doing this over night due to the citrus base.
Heat grill to highest heat (Approx. 450F to 500F)
Remove Carne Asada from marinade and throw on the piping hot grill. The more the sizzle, the better. Charred, crisp edges are what you're looking for, they're full of flavor! Leave on grill approximately 4-5 minutes per side until it reaches an internal temperature of 125F for medium rare. Allow Carne Asada to rest for 5-10 minutes, slice thinly or chop.
Prepare your tortilla:
Keeping with the "charred" theme, we like to throw our tortillas on the grill for a quick warm-up. Whether you prefer corn or flour tortillas, this Carne Asada is fantastic on both!
Build your taco:
Top your tortilla with the juicy Carne Asada and all of your favorite toppings!
We enjoy ours with shredded sharp cheddar cheese, green taco sauce, sour cream & homemade Mango Avocado Salsa.

2 Mangos diced
2 Avacados diced
1/2 Jalapeno (more if you like more heat) seeded and minced
Juice of 2 Limes

Sprinkling of Tajin seasoning to liking
