The recipe for these carne asada tacos calls for corn tortillas but the picture shows FLOUR tortillas.
Carne Asada Tacos
From EatingWell: January/February 2012
These flank-steak soft tacos are so tasty and easy, they should be in everyone’s repertoire. Plus they’re made with fresh corn tortillas (not fried) and topped with a quick homemade salsa made with avocado, tomato, onion and a bright squeeze of lime.

This was one of the best recipes I've made from eatingwell.com. I actually used chicken breast instead of the steak b/c it was what I had in the fridge, but everything still turned out fantastic! The other reviewers are right about the salt - I read those before hand so I didn't actually end up using any salt and it was just fine. The salsa is so simple and delicious and I made a big batch which lasted for 3 days. Next time I will definitely pick up some steak to make this.
We made the tacos as stated but instead of the salsa because I have picky kiddos, we used sauteed green pepper and onions. The marinade was a bit salty but over all amazing flavor. Will try with salsa when the picky ones are out of the home...
This was a great recipe for tacos. My boyfriend and I even made our own corn tortilla chips to go with! The only complaint is that the salsa just called for too much salt - it is overpowering...so maybe only using a half a tablespoon of salt would be better.
I used beef tender loin instead of flank steak, it is just my preference. This recipe is easy to make and is so delicious, the combination of flavors was genius!!!!! I will make this again and again. My husband said that it was "by far the best thing you have ever made!" I have been cooking 3 meals a day for him for 15 years so that is a HUGE endorsement!!!! I used far free shredded cheddar for myself and Kraft mexican four cheese blend for my family. LOVED this so much!!!!!!!
