Carne Asada Street Tacos

These delicious, easy-to-prepare soft street tacos come together in a flash with our Beef Carne Asada. This quick-cooking cut gets a flavor boost from a simple seven-ingredient marinade, and grills up in just minutes. Serve with prepared soft tortillas of your choice (we used Chipotle-infused here), and a selection of toppings to create a self-serve taco bar dinner!
