 Ingredients List

  • Marinade and Tacos
  • 1 pound flank or skirt steak
  • one 1.25-ounce packet Ortega® Taco Seasoning Mix
  • 1/2 cup lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Whole Wheat Tortillas
  • Salsa
  • 1 bunch cilantro
  • one 4-ounce can Ortega® Hot Diced Jalapeños (Diced Green Chiles may be substituted)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup lime juice, or as necessary for consistency
  • salt, if desired
  • sugar, if desired
  • Mild Taco Sauce, Flavor Craver Chipotle Taco Sauce, or Flavor Craver Taco Ranch Taco Sauce may be substituted or used in addition to the blender salsa
  • pico de gallo, for serving
  • avocado, lime wedges, etc., optional for serving


Marinade and Tacos - To a large zip top plastic bag, add the steak, taco seasoning, lime juice, olive oil, seal bag, squish contents around, and marinate in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, up to 8 hours.
Preheat outdoor grill to medium high (alternatively, use an indoor grill pan or cast iron skillet to cook the steak), add the steak, and cook for about 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until as done as desired. Allow meat to rest for 5 to 10 minutes before slicing into thin strips.
Divide beef among tortillas as desired.
Salsa - To the canister of a blender, add the cilantro, jalapeños, olive oil, enough lime juice to get the blender going, and process on high speed until smooth. Taste the salsa and if desired, add a pinch of salt and/or sugar until desired flavor balance is achieved.
Add as much blender salsa, Ortega prepared salsa(s), pico de gallo, and optional serving items to the tacos as desired and serve immediately.
