Crispy Tacos:

  • Corn/Flour Tortillas
  • 2 cups Shredded Jack Cheese
  • 2 tbsp Chopped Red Onion
  • 2 tbsp Chopped Cilantro

Avocado Salsa:

  • 1 Whole Avocado
  • 1 Whole Serrano Pepper
  • ¼ cup Water
  • 2 tbsp White Vinegar
  • 2 tbsp Cilantro
  • 2 tbsp White Onion


  • Begin by lathering your steak with oil and seasoning generously with my Chipotle Garlic Rub. Next, add the shrimp to a food safe bowl along with oil and season generously with my Jalapeno Lime Pilsner Rub. Set both in the fridge to sit until ready to use.
  • Preheat your grill to high temperature about 400F.
  • Add the steaks to the grill first and cook for about 4 minutes per side until medium rare (about 120 internal). When the steaks are done, pull off and let rest. Next, add a cast iron skillet or plancha over the fire with some oil. Add your shrimp to the skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes until done (having a “C” shape instead of an “O” shape). Pull off once done and set to the side. Slice up your steak against the grain then cube it.
  • Warm up your tortillas and lay them out. Build them with a handful of shredded cheese, a couple shrimp and a small handful of chopped steak. Fold them over and set to the side.
  • Heat up your grill to 400F with a cast iron skillet/plancha. Add your tacos to the skillet and sear them for 1.5-2 minutes per side or until the tortilla is crispy and the cheese has melted. Pull them off once done and let cool.
  • While they cool, add all the ingredients for the Avocado Salsa to a blender and blend until smooth. Garnish your tortillas with the Avocado Salsa, chopped cilantro and chopped red onion. Serve and enjoy!
