Ingredients:

  • 8 small corn tortillas
  • 1 lb lean beef (such as flank steak or sirloin), thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • Optional toppings: diced onion, diced tomatoes, salsa verde, lime wedges

Instructions:

  1. Cook Beef:
    • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the thinly sliced beef and cook until browned and cooked through, about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove from skillet and set aside.
  2. Prepare Onion Mixture:
    • In the same skillet, add chopped onion and minced garlic. Sauté until onion is translucent, about 2-3 minutes.
  3. Season Beef:
    • Return the cooked beef to the skillet with the onion mixture. Add ground cumin, chili powder, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper. Squeeze lime juice over the mixture. Stir well to combine and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.
  4. Warm Tortillas:
    • Heat the corn tortillas in a separate skillet or directly over a gas flame until warmed and slightly charred, about 30 seconds per side.
  5. Assemble Tacos:
    • Place a spoonful of the beef mixture onto each warmed tortilla. Top with chopped cilantro and optional toppings such as diced onion, diced tomatoes, and salsa verde.
  6. Serve:
    • Serve the low-point Mexican street tacos immediately, with lime wedges on the side for squeezing over the tacos.
