Fire Grilled Carne Asada Tacos W/ Homemade Tortillas

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Last night we decided to have carne asada tacos. As the missus left for the store to get some supplies, I suggested we try and make our own tortillas. So, she bought some pre-made masa dough and a cast iron tortilla press from the Mexican market and we're in business!

I fired up the Kingsford Oval for my usual smoky reverse sear, with a few chunks of oak on the hot coals:

After the meat was cooked, I pulled it, along with the crispy onions I carefully grilled without burning too much:

And finally, here's two plated tacos on the fresh tortillas along with a few slices of colby jack/poblano quesadilla:

The tortillas has a nice crisp texture on the outside, yet were puffy and light on the inside. They were amazing, and I don't think we'll ever use store bought tortillas for tacos again!

I love Mexican food, good looking grub ya got there MooseMan, I just finished off a pan of enchiladas yesterday, your photo makes me want to cook some more Mexican tonight.

treegje, don't let not living in the "vicinity" stop you, you've overcome so many BBQing obstacles already, for corn tortillas order 'Masa Harina' on line, for flour tortillas you can use 'farine sans levure' build or buy a tortilla press and voila, Mexican, you will love it and it is sooo simple.
