In a medium bowl add  beef, one tablespoon of canola oil, squeezed fresh limes, canola oil, cloves, salsa mix, cumin, oregano, salt and pepper. Mix well.

 

In a gallon size, Ziploc bag, place your meat mixture in bag.

Marinade for at least 1 hour up to four, turning the bag occasionally. (I prefer overnight for best flavor results)

 

Heat remaining canola oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.

Add beef mixture and marinade, and cook, stirring often until beef has browned and marinade has reduced, about 6-10 minutes or until desired doneness.

 

Serve it up on a large platter with warm tortillas and all the garnishes at arms reach!

Pairs well with a fresh Dita-Rita Margarita ~ this recipe is going to definitely become one of your favorites … Guaranteed. You’ll be tasting the love.
