Mexican inspired street tacos perfect for Cinco de Mayo! Delicious grilled flank steak loaded with grilled corn, red onions, fresh pico de gallo and finished with our cilantro green sauce and a dash of hot sauce.
Its safe to say that we are definitely Mexican food lovers! We are all about the bold flavors and fresh ingredients that Mexican food brings to the table and lets be honest this food is so fun to eat whether its family style communal eating to individual plates, everything is so bright and colourful and just makes you hungry!
These tacos are so easy to make and the perfect recipe for Cinco de Mayo that is family friendly but also perfect for entertaining since you can serve this as a build your own taco bar! The Carne Asada flank steak is made with a citrus marinade and the steak is grilled and then chopped into bite size juicy pieces. Flank steak or skirt steak works best for this kind of recipe, you can buy a bigger piece if your serving a larger crowd or a half size if your making this dinner for two.

You’ll need a handful of ingredients to make these tacos like fresh pico de gallo, grilled corn, chopped red onions, limes, cilantro and of course the steak. We like to chop up the steak into very thin slices and then chop those slices into small bite size pieces so when you go for that perfect bite there wont be any chewing involved or trying to cut a large piece of steak with your teeth.
For Mexican street style tacos we highly recommend making the green sauce and serving Valentina’s hot sauce with your tacos. When your at a Mexican restaurant or even at food trucks they always have these amazing sauces for guests to add to their food and the sauces always add that extra hint of spice of bold flavor that comes with authentic Mexican food!
Wash these tacos down with a classic margarita in honor of Cinco de Mayo!
