NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 1 12 -ounce jar sliced pickled jalapenos, drained
  • 1 1 3/4 -pound flank steak,trimmed
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped white onion
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro
  • Lime wedges, for serving
  • 2 -4 tablespoons Salsa (homemade or store-bought)
  • Corn tortillas (homemade or store-bought)
Directions
  • Make tortillas, if you're using Homemade Tortillas

  • Marinate the steak: Spread the jalapenos in a baking dish and press the steak on top. Cover and set aside at room temperature, about 1 hour.

  • Preheat a grill or grill pan to high. Brush the jalapenos off the steak, pat dry and season with salt and pepper. Grill the steak for 4 to 6 minutes per side for medium-rare. Let rest 10 minutes, then slice.

  • Assemble the tacos: For each taco, stack 2 tortillas and lay a few pieces of steak in the middle. Top with onion, salsa and cilantro. Top with lime wedges.

  • To make your own salsa, use Aaron's recipe for Salsa de Arbol (or store-bought salsa).
