Steak Tacos:
2 oranges, juiced
½ cup chopped cilantro
¼ cup olive oil
1 lime, juiced
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon salt
2 lb flank steak
1 tablespoon olive oil, or more as needed
Corn tortillas
7 oz Oaxaca cheese
Avocado Crema:
2 avocados, peeled and pitted
½ cup sour cream
1½ limes, juiced
3 garlic cloves
Salt, to taste
Grilled Corn Salsa:
2 ears of corn
Olive oil
Salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
½ cup diced red onion
1 jalapeňo pepper, seeds removed and diced
4 tablespoons chopped cilantro
1 lime, juiced


1. Prepare the tacos: Stir together the orange juice, cilantro, ¼ cup olive oil, lime juice, garlic, soy sauce, cumin, paprika, and salt in a large bowl until well combined. Add the steak and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour (the longer, the better).
2. Meanwhile, make the crema: Add the avocados, sour cream, lime juice, and garlic to a food processor and pulse until smooth. Season with salt. Refrigerate until ready to use.
3. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
4. Make the salsa: Rub the corn with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Cook over the preheated grill until charred, rotating the corn every 5 minutes. Cut the corn kernels from the cob and place in a medium bowl. Add the red onion, jalapeňo, cilantro, and lime juice; mix until well combined. Season with salt and set aside.
5. Remove the steak from the marinade and place on the grill. Cook the steak, flipping every 4-5 minutes, until both sides are charred and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center reads 135°F (57°C). Let rest for 5 minutes before slicing against the grain. Discard the marinade.
6. Pour 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet or griddle over medium heat. Place a corn tortilla in the skillet. Top with slices of steak and sprinkle with Oaxaca cheese. Fold the tortilla in half and cook for 1-2 minutes, until golden on both sides. Repeat with the remaining steak, tortillas, and cheese.
7. Serve the tacos with the crema and salsa on top, and enjoy!!
