How To Have Fun Cooking Authentic Mexican Carne Asada (Grilled Steak) Tacos


     If you want to cook like a Mexican then you will need to turn your radio ON very loud and dance while cooking

Here is what you will need:

– MASECA Instant corn masa mix (to make tortillas)
– Water
– For the meat, I like to buy the angus beef steaks from walmart brand $25.00 (10 pk)taco2
– 3 tomatoes
– 1 onion
– 1 bunch of cilantro- 2 avocados- 3 garlic cloves- serrano chiles
– limes
– salt
– black pepper

First you start by making your corn tortillas as directed on the package, just add water and mix.
Don’t forget to be chewing gum and popping some bubbles while making tortillas.

     While you are making tortillas , you need to place the tomatoes and the serrano chiles (I use 1 or 2, but depending on how hot you like the salsa you can add as many you want) on the pan at a low heat and let them roast, turn them occasionally to get them cooked all over.
Keep dancing and drinking

Once they are soft and juicy then place them into the blender, then add water, ¼ of an onion, 2 cloves of garlic and some cilantro. salt and black pepper.
And then you have your red salsa ready!salsa-picanta-roja

Now, for the avocado salsa, open 2 avocados and place them into the blender (just the inside of it), some cilantro, ¼ of onion, 1 clove of garlic, ½ serrano chile, water, and salt.

Finally for the meat, if you have the angus steaks just place them into the grill until they are done, if you have plain beef steaks, place them on the grill and just add salt and pepper. Chop the meat into tiny pieces.

Now, for the toppings you need, diced onion and cilantro.

Everything is ready for you to start making your tacos, grab a tortilla, place some meat on it, then add some cilantro and onions, then some hot red salsa and avocado salsa too, the final touch is lime juice and your taco is Listo para comer! Delicioso!

About me,

My name is Alma Aldana

I was born and raised in Guadalajara, Mexico.I’m the oldest of 3, my brother is the middle child and my sister the baby girl, but regardless of that my mom and dad always made us feel special to each one of us.

Mom and Dad are teachers, therefore education was very important for them, I was lucky received a Spanish -French bilingual education in a private school for my elementary and secondary school.
After finishing high school I was sent to Washington State as an exchange student to learn English, I fell in love with the beauty of the cities and the weather and promised to myself to come back.

     Started Law school in a private University in Mexico and played soccer for the school team, when finished decided to start a journey and move to either US or Canada, and I ended up settling down in Seattle for the next 6 years of my life, then I was offered to participate in a program to become a bilingual teacher in Texas, therefore, I moved to the south and went to school again, took some tests and finally became a certified bilingual teacher by the school board of Texas.
