For the steak and marinade:

  • 1 medium jalapeño, thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup J.Olive Co. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 3/4 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 pound skirt steak, cut crosswise into 5–6-inch segments

For the tacos:

  • 8 (8-inch) corn tortillas
  • Homemade or store-bought tomatillo salsa (for serving)
  • 1/2 medium avocado, sliced
  • 1/3 cup sour cream, thinned with a tablespoon of water or lime juice
  • Crumbled queso fresco (optional), cilantro leaves, thinly sliced red onion, and lime wedges (for serving)


Marinate and cook the steak:

  • Combine jalapeño, garlic, cilantro, lime juice, olive oil, salt, pepper, and cumin in a large resealable bag or bowl. Add steak and toss to coat; if using bowl, wrap with plastic.
  • Marinate at least 30 minutes at room temperature or chill up to overnight in refrigerator, tossing occasionally.
  • Let steak sit at room temperature 30 minutes before cooking if chilled. Prepare a grill or grill pan for medium-high heat.
  • Remove steak from marinade, scraping off any bits that cling to meat; discard marinade. Grill steak 2–3 minutes per side for medium rare. Let rest 10 minutes before thinly slicing against the grain.

Assemble the tacos:

  • Warm tortillas in a microwave, oven, or over a gas flame. Divide steak among tortillas, then top with salsa, avocado, sour cream, queso fresco, if using, cilantro, and onion. Serve with lime wedges alongside.
