Carne Asada Tacos

Posting these pics is making my mouth water!!!

Good sign, right?

Warning: this is another one of those meals that you need

to start the night before!!!

But it is pretty simple and very tasty!!!

The night before, take a beef chuck roast and place it

in a glass baking dish. In a small bowl add the following

ingredients for the marinade:

lime juice

vegetable oil

chopped onion

minced garlic



Cover and marinade overnight... be sure to turn several times!

The next day....

to a crockpot add vegetable stock, can of diced tomatoes, chipotle peppers, yellow

onion, garlic cloves, cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper.

Remove meat from marinade and add to crockpot.

Cook for 4-5 hours or until fork tender.

After the meat has cooked, start frying the tortillas.

Place corn tortillas in a large saucepan with a small amount

of oil and fry for about 1 minute each side.

Place on a paper towel lined place to drain extra grease.

You are ready to assemble....

this is the way I like them but you can add whatever you like

or leave off what you don't! :)

Take your warm tortilla, top with meat, squeeze lime juice over the

meat for extra nummy flavor... top with salsa, cilantro (lots of cilantro!!!)

and Quesco Fresco.

Serve with a side of chips and salsa and you are all set!
