Alambre Tacos are an amazing invention. Carne Asada topped with bacon, and grilled onions and peppers.
Then to top it all off I added a little aji sauce that takes an already amazing taco to a whole other level!
You can buy carne asada already marinated from your favorite meat market, or make yours from scratch (See my recipe for carne asada with beer marinade).
You could also pick up a carne asada marinade – either way you go this is a no fail recipe!
Think of alambre tacos as the original LA street meat. It’s everything you love about a street dog, but its in taco form
How could you not love that?!
You can opt against it, but you’ll be missing out on something amazing – but I highly recommend making my green aji sauce.
It’s a riff on my favorite peruvian condiment. It uses an Aji pepper which is hard to find in the states, so I normally substitute with a serrano pepper. But its spicy, and goes on anything.
What I love about alambre tacos, is they’re simple. Even the carne asada could be a simple salt and pepper seasoning if you’re in a bind.
Once everything comes together in taco form all the flavors just melt together like they were meant to be.
And word to the wise. Make enough for leftovers. Because they’ll make an amazing breakfast burrito, omelette or even breakfast skillet with some potatoes!
