Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 20 minutes Servings: 20


1.5 lbs skirt steak

1 pkt La Preferida Carne Asada Seasoning.

15 oz. can La Preferida Mayo Coba Beans

2 tbsp. La Preferida Diced Green Chiles

1 baguette – med size, approx. 18 inches

4 tbsp. La Preferida Olive Oil

20 pitted olives, pitted (any kind)

11 oz. jar La Preferida Red Jalapeño Slices

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp pepper pepper

16 oz. bottle La Preferida Pico de Gallo

recommended: 20 bamboo skewers or toothpicks 

Preheat oven to 350° F.

In a blender, puree beans and diced green chiles – add water if necessary. Set it aside.

Cut baguette into 20 slices about 1/4 inch thick. Brush with olive oil and lightly season with salt and pepper (about 1/2 teaspoon of each.) Bake for 15 minutes. Set it aside.

Heat 2 tbsp of olive oil in a skillet. Season steak with Carne Asada Seasoning and cook to desired temperature or doneness. Allow to cool for 5 minutes. Slice against the grain at an angle – small enough to fit on baguette slices.

Spread bean and chile puree on baguette slices. Layer with steak, olive, red jalapeño. Top each piece with 1 tsp Pico de Gallo and pierce with skewer or toothpick.
