or 1 bag store bought chips

1 can of refried beans or a pint of retried beans from the your local taqueria (I like La Palma)

3 tomatoes diced

1 bunch chopped cilantro

3 avocados

1 large diced yellow onion

2 jalapeños seeded and chopped

2 tsp chile powder

1tsp cumin


Carne Asada

Marinate skirt steak at least one hour in advance with salt, juice of 1 lime, and 2 tsp chile powder

Grill skirt steak over grill to internal temp of 120, or broil on top rack of oven for 3 min per side

Slice into thin 1-inch-long pieces


Heat oil to 350 degrees

Cut tortillas in quarters

Fry tortillas in two batches for three minutes per batch


If using canned beans warm up in a pot with a teaspoon of cumin and juice of half a lime

Pico de Gallo

Place a teaspoon of beans on each chip followed by 1 piece of skirt steak, one slice of pickled jalapeno and top with cheese

Place under broiler for 3 min or until cheese is fully melted

Serve on large platter with scoops of guacamole, pico de gallo and Mexican crema in the middle
