I am always on the lookout for a new, yummy Mexican dish. This one fits the bill. It was super easy to make and full of flavor. Thanks Rufus for the inspiration.
Carne Asada (adapted from Rufus)
- 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
- Juice from two limes
- Juice from 1/2 a lemon
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 chipotles packed in adobo, rinsed and diced
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
- 1 pound flank or skirt steak
Combine the first 8 ingredients. In a ziploc bag or a small glass dish, marinade the steak for 4 to 6 hours.
Grill to desired doneness. Serve thinly sliced (against the grain) in corn tortillas with cilantro, avacado, black olives, sour cream, and cheese.
Nice marinade and pictures.

Glad you tried it and liked it. Those beans look great. Gotta love a nice Mexican meal.
If I could only eat one cuisine for the rest of my life, it would be Mexican, no doubt.
