  • “A great way to make Mexican when you live far from the border! These were excellent. My husband enjoyed them very much, as it was his first time with carne asada. I didn’t have jarred salsa (we live outside the US), so I made my own, and we only had one avocado, but they were delicious.Used flour tortillas, but I bet corn would be tasty as well. Thanks for sharing this recipe, s’kat! If you have other tried and true Mexican recipes, please post more!”

  • “S’kat, this was good! I made the meat on the grill (and heated the tortillas there as well). I used small flour tortillas and instead of jarred salsa, I used my own homemade pico de gallo. I really liked eating them with the avocados, it really added to the flavor. Thanks for posting this! “
