Tender grilled steak tacos, red onions, queso fresco and cilantro lime cream on a lightly fried white corn tortilla.



Cilantro Lime Cream

  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup greek yogurt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, pressed through a garlic press
  • 3 tablespoons cilantro, roughly chopped
  • Juice of a lime


  • 8 white corn tortillas
  • 23 tablespoons canola oil
  • Grilled steak, sliced thinly (I used a little over one pound of tri-tip)
  • 1/2 cup red onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup queso fresco, crumbled
  • cilantro for garnish


Cilantro Lime Cream

  1. In a small food processor or blender, pulse together the sour cream, greek yogurt, cumin, cayenne pepper, garlic, cilantro and lime juice until smooth.


  1. Start by heating a teaspoon of oil in a small pan over medium heat. When the oil is hot, place one tortilla in the pan, and lightly fry until the tortilla puffs up a bit. This should take about 30 seconds per side. Place the fried tortilla on a paper towel, and repeat with the remaining tortillas.
  2. Layer grilled steak, red onion, queso fresco, and cilantro on each tortilla.
  3. Drizzle with cilantro lime cream.
  4. *** If you want to make these over-the-top amazing, try frying two tortillas with 1 tablespoon of queso fresco in between them to use as your taco shell!
