Thursday, July 27th, 2006

* 2 pounds carne asada
* 4 limes, squeezed
* 1 white onion, chopped
* 1 clove garlic, minced
* 1 teaspoon jalapeno, seeded and diced
* fresh pepper
* 2 tablespoons salt
* 1 teaspoon cumin
* 1 teaspoon chipotle pepper
* 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
* 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
* 2 teaspoons red chili flakes
* corn tortillas

# Combine carne asada, lime juice, 1/2 of the onion, garlic and jalapeno in a ziploc bag, marinate no longer than 30 minutes. Chop the cilantro and set aside.
# Mix the salt, cumin, chipotle pepper and garlic salt together. Heat a grill over medium heat. Lay each piece of carne asada on the grill and sprinkle immediately with salt mixture. As soon as the salt liquefies, flip to the other side and repeat. Meat will be on the salty side (althrough not drowning in it). Remove from grill and dice finely.
# In a sauce pan over medium heat, saute the remaining onions over medium heat VERY BRIEFLY (30 seconds). Add meat and cliantro, and stir. Test seasoning and add salt or chili flakes as needed. Remove from heat immediately.
# Serve on top of warm corn tortillas with Fresh Salsa.
