What do you get when you combine juicy tomatoes, ripe avocados, fresh cilantro, spicy jalapeno and garlic? Avocado Pico de Gallo of course. I love this combination of fresh ingredients and whether I eat it on a taco or with baked tortilla chips, I can't seem to get enough. It's especially good with grilled carne asada tacos. You will want to make at least 2 batches of Pico de Gallo to go with these tacos - trust me.
Carne Asada Tacos with Avocado Pico de Gallo
Lime juice form 2 limes 3 Tablespoons cilantro, chopped
1 pound skirt steak 1 Tablespoon jalapeño, diced
1 teaspoon cumin 1 teaspoon lime juice
½ teaspoon salt 1 garlic clove
½ teaspoon red pepper 1 medium avocado, diced
1 tomato, diced 8 corn tortillas
Let stand 10 minutes.
Slice into ½” pieces.
Combine tomato, cilantro, jalapeño, lime juice, garlic and avocado.
Warm each tortilla over gas flame and serve with steak and salsa.
The meat looks really undercooked here but I know my mom will appreciate the rare beef. I ended up packing up this carne asada and taking it to a friend. I left him instructions to reheat the beef in a hot skillet which will give him the opportunity to cook it to his desired doneness.
