  • 2 teaspoon olive oil
  • pounds skirt steak finely minced
  • 1 small yellow onion finely diced
  • 3/4 teaspoon chipotle powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin toasted if you can find it
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 12 white corn tortillas
  • 2 small bunches cilantro finely minced
  • 1 white onion finely minced


  • hot sauce or salsa
  • diced tomatoes
  • jalapeño minced
  • finely sliced iceberg lettuce


  • Heat 2 teaspoons olive oil in a large 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add in the minced steak and onion. Stir and cook until almost all traces of pink are gone.
  • Measure and add in the chipotle powder, chili powder, cumin and salt. Stir and cook until the steak is no longer pink.
  • Meanwhile, heat a smaller skillet (cast iron, stainless or nonstick) over medium-high heat. Toast one side of the corn tortillas and palce it on a towel lined plate and cover with half of the towel. Repeat with the remaining tortillas.
  • Fill the corn tortillas with a few spoonfuls of meat and top with cilantro and white onion. Feel free to drizzle with your favorite hot sauce, salsa or toppings you wish.
