The Fixin's

12 flour tortillas 6 to 8 inches in diameter

2 medium onions sliced paper thin or chopped

4 ounces whole green chilies cut into strips

softened butter or margarine



sour cream

Place steak in plastic bag or nonmetal baking dish. In small bowl, combine marinade ingredients. Pour over steak, turning to coat. Seal bag or cover dish; marinate at least 6 hours or overnight in refrigerator, turning once or twice.

When ready to grill, drain meat, reserving marinade by placing in small saucepan. Add steak sauce to marinade; blend well. Heat on grill.

Heat foil wrapped tortillas on grill until thoroughly heated and steaming, wrap in cloth napkin or towel to keep warm.

Place steak 4 to 6 inches from medium hot coals. Cook 4 to 6 minutes per side (for medium rare), turning often, or until desired doneness, brushing occasionally with marinade. Do not over cook.

To serve, transfer to a cutting board and slice thinly on the diagonal.

Arrange the steak, warmed tortillas, onions, chilies, butter, salsa and guacamole on a large platter. Spread butter on tortilla; top with the carne asada and any combination of vegetables, salsa, guacamole and sour cream.

Pass the tortillas.

Serve with hot refried beans and Mexican Fried Rice.
