We love to squeeze more limes over our tacos and serve with salsa verde.
You can purchase this but we have an amazing recipe for Homemade Salsa Verde here. It’s very simple to make and SO fresh and delicious.
I think these tacos are perfect with just a little extra lime and salsa. However, a few of the kids like to add sour cream and pico de gallo.
For a change, try orange juiced and olive oil. Whisk together with the lime juice and it’s delicious with the Carne asada taco.
Cotija cheese is a great cheese to top these delicious tacos with. Whichever way you like your Carne Asada Street tacos, they will be amazing!
