Add it to the menu y’all! 🌮🔥 These Steak Tacos with Elote Corn Salad will rock your tastebuds so hard that’s truly the only way to put it. I never realized how badly elote needed to be paired with a steak taco. Such a damn good combo 👏🏼 Of course this is my lightened up version of traditional elote (aka Mexican street corn) and I made it into more of a salad just for the sake of being able to put it on a taco. It also makes a great side dish 👌🏼 Hope you love the recipe!

- 2 limes juiced
- 2 tsp kosher salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1/2 tsp chili powder
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp coriander
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 8 tortillas
- Avocado oil
- Toppings: avocado, salsa, guac, hot sauce, whatever you like!
Elote Corn Salad:
- 4 cobs of corn about 3 cups of corn
- 2 limes juiced
- 1/4 red onion minced
- 1/2 jalapeno minced
- 1/4 cup green onion chopped
- 1/3 cup cilantro chopped
- 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 1/4 tsp cumin
- 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
- 1/4 cup cotjia cheese feta works too!
Marinate your steak in the orange and lime juice for 20 minutes at room temp. Remove from the juice and coat in your seasonings.
To cook the steak, either grill it, cook on a cast iron or use a sous vide. I used my sous vide at 135 degrees for 1 hour for it to be cooked medium. Then I seared it for about 1 minute on each side in my cast iron.
Let it cool then slice into bite sized pieces.
While your steak cooks, make the Elote Corn Salad! Cut the corn kernels off the cob into a medium bowl. I add them right in raw, but feel free to grill the corn before hand or sauté the kernels to get a char.
Add in remaining ingredients and stir to combine. Season to taste.
Heat your tortillas and prepare additional toppings. Assemble your tacos and enjoy!
