Electric Lime Tacos

Serves 4


  • 1 1/2 pounds flank steak
  • 7 oz Electric Lime hot sauce
  • Juice of 2 large limes
  • Zest of 1 large lime
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Olive oil, for grill
  • Corn tortillas
  • 1/2 small red onion, chopped
  • 1 large avocado, diced
  • 1/3 cup queso fresco (optional)
  • Chopped cilantro, for serving


  1. Place the flank steak in a 9×13 pan. Pour lime juice and 5 oz (one bottle) of Electric Lime hot sauce over the steak and let marinate for 30 minutes, at room temperature.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine lime zest, salt, sugar, pepper, chili powder, cumin, paprika, garlic powder, oregano, and cinnamon.
  3. Rub both sides of the steak with the spice mixture, pressing with your fingers to help the rub adhere to the meat.
  4. Preheat grill to high heat. Lightly coat a paper towel with oil and, holding it with long tongs, carefully rub the oiled towel over the grill rack. Place steak directly on the grill and cook for 5 minutes on each side. Remove from grill and let the steak rest on a cutting board, covered with foil, for 10 minutes.
  5. While the steak is resting, warm the corn tortillas on the grill or use a gas flame to char them slightly.
  6. Cut the steak into strips, against the grain. Place steak strips in the corn tortillas and top with red onion, avocado, cilantro, Electric Lime and queso fresco (if desired). Serve warm.
