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!
