Spicy Carne Asada Tacos

I've really been craving Mexican lately and these tacos definitely curbed my craving! They were also a nice change from beef tacos and they were a hit with the hubby! I can't wait to make these again soon!

Spicy Carne Asada Tacos
Makes Approx 8 tacos
WW PP=4 per taco (calculated with steak, tortilla, lime juice, and veggies)
Cal 159, Fat 5.5g, Carbs 14g, Fiber 1g, Protein 12g

16 oz lean skirt steak
4 tbsp spicy pepper rub (I used McCormicks Spicy 5 Pepper)
2 garlic cloves, cut in half
2 tsp freshly squeezed lime juice
1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
8 flour tortillas
shredded lettuce, cheese, tomatoes, sour cream, salsa for toppings

Lay your steak in a baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil and lime juice. Evenly coat your steak with the pepper rub and then add your garlic. Cover and place in the fridge for at least 6 hours-overnight. (I marinated mine for 8 hours) Remove your steak and either broil or grill until desired doneness. (We like medium-rare) Assemble your tacos by placing some of the steak into your taco shell and topping with shredded cheese and lettuce along with any other additional toppings of your choice. Spritz with extra lime juice if desired. Enjoy!
