Texas Skirt Steak Tacos are a delicious and flavorful Tex-Mex dish that combines tender skirt steak with a variety of fresh ingredients. These tacos are known for their bold flavors and are a favorite among taco enthusiasts. To make Texas Skirt Steak Tacos, you will need the following ingredients:


  • 2lbs of Skirt Steak
  • 2 tbsp of Spicelopedia® Texas Brisket Seasoning
  • 1 tbsp of Jalapeño, diced
  • 1 tbsp of Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 bunch of Culantro Leaves
  • 1 tbsp of Lime Zest
  • 1/4 cups of Olive Oil

For the Queso

  • 8 oz of Havarti Cheese, shredded
  • 2 tbsp of Spicelopedia ™ Texas Brisket Seasoning
  • 3 tbsp of Red Onion, diced
  • 2 tbsp of Butter, unsalted
  • 1 tbsp of Flour
  • Torn Cilantro, fresh



Step One

Add skirt steak to a storage (plastic) bag along with half of the seasoning, diced pepper, Worcestershire, Cilantro, lime zest and olive oil. Close the bag and rub the seasoning to evenly coat.


Step Two

Marinate under refrigeration for four hours.


Step Three

Remove meat from marinade. Pat dry with paper towel. Rub with remaining seasoning. Let sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes.


Step Four

Preheat grill pan to medium high.


Step Five

Sear meat on grill, about three minutes each side. Remove from grill and let rest.


    Step Six

    While the meat is resting, slightly melt the Havarti in the microwave, about one minute.


    Step Seven

    Add onion, butter and flour to saucepan. Whisk to form a roux. Add in the slightly melted cheese and continue to whisk. If the queso is too thick, you can add milk.


    Step Eight

    Transfer to serving bowl. Top with fresh herbs (if using)


    Step Nine

    To serve the tacos, slice the meat against the grain. You can heat the tortillas on the grill to slightly toast (optional). Top with your favorite toppings and the queso.
