This is a yummy twist on traditional beef tacos. You can marinate the meat yourself or find marinated ranchera meat if possible.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 3 large Chiles Verde, (Anaheim chiles)
  • 12 medium Corn Tortillas
  • 1 pound Flank Steak
  • 2 cloves Garlic, minced and divided
  • 1 bottle Lime Marinade
  • 1 medium Onion, diced
  • 1 teaspoon Salt


  1. Marinate flank steak in lime marinade in fridge for at least two hours. Slice flank steak very thinly and then cut it into 1/2 inch wide strips. Put meat in skillet with just enough water to cover. Sprinkle with salt.
  2. Bring to a boil then decrease heat to medium-low and cook about five minutes. Add the onion and one mined garlic clove. Continue to simmer about twenty minutes, adding water as necessary.
  3. Meanwhile, put chiles in saucepan and add water to about half full. Bring to a boi and cook until the chiles are very tender, about 15 minutes. Add hot water as necessary to keep water level the same.
  4. Remove chiles to cutting board, reserving the water.
  5. When the meat is very tender, continue to cook, allowing remaining water to evaporate.
  6. Cut the chiles in half lengthwise and then in thirds, discarding the stem. Puree in food processor with remaining garlic. Add a small amount of water if necessary to make creamy sauce. Add a pinch of salt to taste.
  7. Spoon sauce into small serving bowl.
  8. Heat tortillas and serve along with meat and sauce and any other desired topping such as tomato and sour cream.
