It’s TACO TUESSSSDAY! | San Antonio Moms

Around our house on Tuesdays you can bet to hear the girls saying “TACO TUESSSDAY!” My girls love taco Tuesdays and the best thing about it – the recipes can be switched up so things don’t get boring at the dinner table.

Mini street tacos are my favorite. When I used to live in the Stone Oak area there was a food truck that parked outside of my apartment complex that served the BEST street tacos.

Take a peek at this recipe that I use in our house from damn delicious – I promise you won’t regret it!


Easy, quick, authentic carne asada street tacos you can now make right at home! Top with onion, cilantro + fresh lime juice! SO GOOD!


  • 2 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 1/2 pounds skirt steak, cut into 1/2-inch pieces 
  • 12 mini flour tortillas, warmed
  • 3/4 cup diced red onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges


  1. In a medium bowl, combine soy sauce, lime juice, 1 tablespoon canola oil, garlic, chili powder, cumin and oregano.
  2. In a gallon size Ziploc bag or large bowl, combine soy sauce mixture and steak; marinate for at least 1 hour up to 4 hours, turning the bag occasionally.
  3. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon canola oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add steak and marinade, and cook, stirring often, until steak has browned and marinade has reduced, about 5-6 minutes, or until desired doneness.
  4. Serve steak in tortillas, topped with onion, cilantro and lime.


***Looking to make dinner a tad bit easier – HEB sells Mi Tienda Seasoned Diced Meats. While it’s not the same as skirt steak it does offer a way to change up this delicious taco.
