Ingredients

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

In a small bowl, combine the orange juice, olive oil, lime juice, lime zest, agave nectar (or brown sugar, if using), garlic, oregano, chili powder, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Pour the mixture into a 1-gallon-size resealable bag. Add the chicken breasts, chicken thighs and steak and refrigerate for 4 hours, turning the meat occasionally. Put a grill pan over medium-high heat or preheat a gas or charcoal grill. Remove the meat from the bag and season with salt. Reserve the marinade. 

Grill the chicken breasts for 6 to 8 minutes on each side and the chicken thighs for 8 to 10 minutes on each side or until cooked through. Grill the steak for 5 to 6 minutes each side for medium-well. Allow the meat to rest for 10 minutes before slicing. 

Meanwhile, put the marinade in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat (in order to kill any bacteria). Boil for 5 minutes until slightly thickened. Slice the meat into 1/4-inch thick pieces and put into serving bowls. Pour the cooked marinade over the meat and toss until coated. Serve the meat in warm tortillas.

Cook's Note

To warm the tortillas, set a burner to medium heat. Using tongs, put a tortilla directly over the flame until slightly charred, about 20 to 30 seconds. Flip the tortilla and cook on the other side. Keep the tortillas warm in a tortilla warmer or wrap in a clean towel until ready to serve.
