    Dawn's Note:

    In the southwest and Mexico, there are little stands serving tasty meat, wrapped in a corn tortilla and topped with salsa. The Taquerias serve the best Tacos Al Carbon. This is a pretty authentic recipe for these tasty little tacos. It is flank steak marinated with all the flavours of Mexico. The avocado salsa is a great side dish by itself, but is excellant as a filling for the tacos. It does need to marinate for 4-6 hours. Don't forget the cerveza with lime!

      We made this after eating it at Las Palapas restaurant. This was a pretty good recipe, but I think it needs a little bit more flavor. Maybe it was just us, but we do like a bit more kick to it.

      I can only review the meat/marinade as I did not make the avocado salsa - although after tasting the meat I could see how that would make it even better! (or at least some good guac.) The meat was VERY limey/lemoney - almost overpowering. We did add a bit of chili powder to jazz it up a bit. The second day the citrus flavor had mellowed considerably and it was AWESOME!!
