Carne Asada Burritos

Carne Asada Burritos

Recipe by: Miguel Ray @cookingwithfire



  • 2 lbs skirt steak

  • Salt and pepper (or any steak seasoning)
  • 4 12” flour tortillas
  • 2 cups shredded Oaxaca cheese


  • 2 medium tomatoes
  • 2 jalapeño peppers
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1/4 sweet onion
  • 2 tbsp cilantro
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • 2 medium avocados
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Salt and pepper to taste



  • Preheat grill on high.

  • Season the skirt steak with salt and pepper or any steak seasoning of your choice.
  • Char the tomatoes, jalapeño peppers, garlic cloves, and sweet onion on the grill until tender and nicely charred.
  • Add the charred veggies to a blender and blend until smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Prepare the guacamole by removing the skin and seeds from the avocados. Use a food processor or a bowl with a cup to smash the guacamole. Add salt, pepper, and lime juice to taste.
  • Grill the seasoned skirt steak for 3.5 minutes per side. Once cooked, remove from the grill and let it rest for 3 minutes before slicing it into bite-sized pieces.
  • In a large skillet over medium heat, add a handful of shredded Oaxaca cheese and let it melt until it’s nice and golden brown.
  • Place a tortilla on top of the melted cheese and lift it up. If the cheese is stuck to the tortilla and it’s nicely golden brown, remove it from the skillet.
  • Assemble the burrito by adding the sliced carne asada, guacamole, and salsa on top of the tortilla. Wrap the burrito tightly, folding in the sides as you go.
  • Place the burrito back in the skillet with some butter and cook until the outside is crispy and golden brown.
  • Remove the burrito from the skillet and serve hot.
