Let's Make This Recipe!

  • Step 1

    Grill carne asada according to your recipe or package directions if you're using pre-packaged.

  • Step 2

    In the mean time, mix your taco seasoning into your sour cream. Depending on the brand, you may not need to use the whole package, so be sure to taste as you mix.

  • Step 3

    Butter one side of each slice of bread and place a slice of cheese on the unbuttered side. Set aside.

  • Step 4

    Once your carne asada has cooked, slice it very thinly against the grain. Place two slices of bread in a pan on medium-low, butter side down. Cover to let the cheese melt.

  • Step 5

    Once cheese had melted, add about 1 oz of your carne asada to one slice. Follow with a dollop of sour cream mixture and a handful of arugula.

  • Step 6

    Place the other slice of bread on top and press down with spatula. Continue cooking until both sides of the sandwich are golden brown. Repeat for each sandwich.

    Note: You will most likely have leftovers of the ingredients. Use them to make a yummy salad the next day.
