I wrapped my tacos in these low-carb and healthy CAULIPOWER Cauliflower Tortillas! You can find these in the freezer or refrigerator aisle at your local grocery store. The tortillas are available in Original and Grain Free and are always vegan and dairy-free.
WHY I LOVE THESE CAULIFLOWER TORTILLAS
- Cauliflower is the first ingredient in these tortillas so no need to worry about any filler ingredients
- They are naturally gluten, wheat, and preservative free- this makes it so easy to eat clean in 2020!
- The tortillas are ready in minutes by simply microwaving or heating in a skillet
- They are so delicious and is a great way to get more veggies in your diet!
I’m so glad that I finally established this delicious Carne Asada Street Taco recipe! I love carne asada, especially when they are served street taco style. This easy recipe is so simple and the best part is you can make these right in your kitchen! There isn’t an outdoor grill or BBQ required for this.
You can also eat this carne asada just as it is or add it to the top of a salad for the best taco salad!
Some of my favorite recipes to serve with these street tacos is 1) my favorite and by far the Best Guacamole recipe I’ve made. 2) This Spicy Cowboy Caviar Dip that you can simply add to the tacos or eat it as a dip or side dish.
Although Carne Asada technically means “grilled meat”, this recipe still tastes just as good even though it is made in a skillet on the stove and not a BBQ or outdoor grill! I use a hot skillet to make this in and it comes out just as delicious. Often times, many people get intimated cooking with beef but I encourage you not to be because it’s just as simple as making any other recipe! Promise!
