Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk lime juice, olive oil, vinegar, garlic powder, chili powder, oregano, cumin, paprika, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper together in a small bowl. Place flank steak in a glass baking dish and pour marinade over top; toss to evenly coat. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator for 4 hours to overnight.

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Arrange frozen fries in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven until light golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes.

  • At the same time, remove flank steak from the refrigerator and place on the preheated grill. Grill until firm and reddish-pink and juicy in the center, about 4 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 130 degrees F (54 degrees C). Remove from the grill and chop into bite-sized pieces.

  • Heat tortillas in a large, dry skillet until warm, about 20 seconds per side.

  • Combine steak, fries, guacamole, sour cream, and salsa in the tortillas.

Cook's Notes:

You can use plain or seasoned frozen french fries.

Skip the marinade and buy seasoned carne asada at the grocery store or local Mexican market!
