    So I'm trying to check out some new stuff for the grill, and my buddy made some Carne Asada that was pretty good and I wanted to get some input from the backyard chefs here. Whats your recommendations on some recipes and other similar Mexican type grill recipes?

    Thanks!

    A love me some Carne Asada. I spent 15 years in So Cal and really got into Mexican food. Traditional Carne Asada is made from skirt steak. It's a PITA to peel the membrane. I don't even try anymore. Trader Joe's has sirloin steak Carne Asada in a vac-pak in their refrigerator case, it's awesome. The wet marinade really permeates the steak. TJ's Carne Asada has a nice spice to it, and it's tender as hell. My fiancee was able to duplicate the Chipolte lime cilantro rice (Chipolte is the best chain fast food burrito IMO). I use refried beans, guacomole (homemade), lettuce, sour cream, cheese, chopped onion, fresh salsa and the biggest tortillas I can find. I grill the meat on the infra-red grill, and heat the tortillas on the side griddle. (I'm drooling on the keyboard, crap!) Oh, I forgot, beer is required.
