Steak Street Tacos Style [Tacos de Carne Asada]

I can eat tacos todos los días , no question at all. Do you?
If you wonder why I can eat tacos everyday here is the answer and is very simple, because there are so many types of tacos! Although, that does not mean I eat tacos every day, but could do so LOL

Tacos may sound simple, but I believe tacos are VERY versatile, and are almost like a fiesta! Mira-Look… tacos are good as a quick snack, appetizers, fast and furious full meal, feed big crowds, kids love them and adults drool for them… you should make tacos soon, don’t you think?

Don’t forget the classic way of prepare #AuthenticTacos. Add finely chopped white onion along with cilantro, splash of lime,  and of course la salsa, Remember … a taco without salsa is not a good taco. The salsa does not have to be spicy, it’s just to give an extra flavour.

Since #5deMayo is just around the corner, why not to get some inspirations for those who celebrate in a very Mexican way. Note: In México do not celebrate May 5 as celebrated in the U.S.. While it is a memorial day for the Batalla of Puebla (battle of Puebla) which took place on May 5 of 1862 near the city of Puebla During the French intervention in Mexico. The battle ended in a victory for the Mexican Army over the French occupying forces. But it is no cause for celebration in Mexico. The day Mexicans (in Mexico) celebrate is the day of the independence of México and that day is September 16.

Here is a list of tacos ideas and to show you how many different tacos exist:

1. Tacos de bistec/ Steak Tacos (Recipe Below)
2. Tacos al Pastor
3. Tacos de suadero
4. Tacos de Barbacoa
