I recently ate Carne Asada Tacos at On the Border Restaurant and fell in love with them. Their menu description is: Premium, mouthwatering carne asada steak drizzled with Jalapeno Ranch dressing and topped with melted cheese and crispy-fried onion strings, all in grilled flatbread tortillas. I came up with this recipe (with some help from other 'zaars) which I believe is a pretty good copy cat. I used the marinade from recipe 103372 by Sharlene--W and modified the dressing recipe 195520 by --Miss Diggy*--.
