How To Prepare Chipotle-Lime Steak Tacos with Quick Pickled Onions ?


Preparation time:  20 miins

Cooking time: 10 mins

Serving: 4-6



  • 1½ pounds skirt steak
  • 1 canned chipotle in adobo, coarsely chopped plus 2 tablespoons adobo sauce
  • 3 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
  • 3 large limes, zested and juiced (about 1/3 cup)
  • 3 large cloves garlic, grated
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  Sauce and pickled onions

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 limes, juiced and zested, divided
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 pinch cloves (optional)

  To serve

  • Warmed corn tortillas
  • Queso fresco, crumbled (optional)
  • Fresh cilantro leaves (optional)
  • Sliced avocado (optional)
  • Additional lime wedges


  1. Cut the skirt steak into 4- to 6-inch-long pieces and place in a gallon-sized zip-top bag or container with a lid. Add the chopped chipotle, adobo sauce, oil, lime juice and zest from 3 limes, grated garlic, salt and black pepper. Seal, shake and let sit room temperature 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. While the steak marinates, whisk together the mayonnaise, about 1 tablespoon of the lime juice and 1/2 of the zest and the ground cumin. Set aside or refrigerate until using if making ahead of time.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the thinly sliced onions, remaining lime juice and zest, cloves and toss to coat.
  4. Heat a cast iron skillet or grill pan over medium-high heat. Remove steak from marinade and cook about 2 to 3 minutes per side for medium rare, or until it reaches desired doneness. Let meat rest on a cutting board 10 minutes before slicing thinly against the grain. Taste and season with additional kosher salt, if desired.
  5. Warm corn tortilla on a skillet or in a microwave. Spread with the cumin-lime mayo, then top with sliced steak, pickled onions, queso fresco and fresh cilantro.
