Carne Asada Marinade

  • ¾ cups orange juice
  • cup lime juice
  • 5 cloves garlic minced
  • cup soy
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 packet fajita seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 lbs skirt steak


  • 1 bag tortilla chips
  • 1 bags steak fries cooked
  • 16 oz black beans, drained
  • cups cheddar cheese freshly shredded
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • ¼ cup Mexican crema or sour cream
  • 3 large avocados chopped & mashed


Carne Asada Marinade

  • Add all of the other marinade ingredients (before you add the meat) into a large ziplock bag and shake well. Put meat in the bag and massage meat making sure that the marinade gets over all the meat. Refrigerate for 3 - 8 hours.


  • Cook/bake steak fries per instructions.
  • Brown the skirt steak in large skillet on high, cooking each side anywhere from 30 seconds to 1 minute. Remove meat from skillet and let it rest. Once cooled, thinly slice the meat against the grain.
  • Preheat oven 425 degrees. On a rimmed 9-by-13-inch baking sheet, evenly spread out tortilla chips, top with an even layer of steak fries and sprinkle across with taco seasoning. Add a layer of shredded cheese, and evenly spread out black beans, followed by the sliced meat and one more heaping layer of cheese. Bake until grated cheese is completely melted, about 7-10 minutes.
  • Top with avocado, pico de gallo and drizzle all over with crema. Serve right away.
