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!
