Chipotle Lime Tacos With Pico De Gallo



1 to 2 tbsp chipotle peppers- pureed
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp cumin
2 tbsp garlic – minced
1 tsp parsley or cilantro
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 1/2 tbsp lime juice
1 tbsp olive oil
1 lb Beef thinly sliced
1 pkg street tacos

  1. In a bowl combine all of the ingredients except the oil and taco shells. Mix well and set aside for about 20 minutes.


1/2 red onion- finely diced
1 to 2 tomatoes- diced small
2 tbsp parsley or cilantro – diced
2 tbsp lime juice
salt and pepper to taste
1 Jalapeno pepper- seeded and diced small

  1. combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and cover with a lid. Let stand 20 minutes.


1 cup sour cream
3 tbsp lime juice

  1. combine the ingredients in a bowl and cover with a lid. Let stand until ready to use.


  1. Over medium heat in a large skillet, add 1 to 2 tbsp olive oil to the pan. Add in the beef and cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until the beef is cooked through. Remove to a bowl and set aside.
  2. At this point you can pour the sauce that is left in the pan into a bowl and brush onto your tacos or you can dip the tacos into the sauce. It is up to you. I like to brush the sauce onto the tacos before adding in the other toppings.


  1. brush or dip the tacos into the the sauce. Add in your beef, pico de gallo and top with the lime cream.
  2. Serve.
  • you can sub the beef for chicken, pork, turkey or other. I have made this with tofu and it works just fine.
  • You can sub the sour cream for a vegan version if you like.
  • You can add lettuce and cheese if that is something you would want to do. Make it your own.
  • You can toast the tacos to crisp them up for more of a crunch or you can use flour tortillas as well.
  • Serve these delicious tacos with a side salad or veggies to keep it light, however, you can serve them with any side you prefer.
