Carne Asada Steak Taco with Chipotle Aioli Sauce

It's Jenna again! I am convinced I could eat Mexican food every day and never get sick of it. (That and Chick-fil-a...but anyways!). I came across this recipe on Pinterest the other day and the Chipotle Aioli intrigued me. It was super tasty and the whole recipe did not disappoint! 

Carne Asada Steak Taco with Chipotle Aioli Sauce 
Six Sisters' Stuff

Steak Tacos:
2 lbs flank steak or London Broil steak, thinly sliced
1 cup salsa (Jenna pureed this)
1 (10 oz) can diced tomatoes with green chilis (I used Rotel) (Jenna pureed this)

1/2 onion, sliced
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
flour or corn tortillas
favorite taco toppings (tomatoes, avocadoes, onions, lettuce, etc)
Chipotle Aioli:
6 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 teaspoons chopped chipotle chiles in adobo (I found a small can on the Mexican food aisle at the grocery store)
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon cumin
4 teaspoons fresh lime juice
salt and pepper, to taste

Spray slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray. (Jenna used a slow cooker liner...great invention!) Place sliced steak and onions in the bottom. Pour salsa, diced tomatoes, cumin, and chili powder on top. Stir, until all seasonings are thoroughly mixed in. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours.

While the meat is cooking, put all ingredients for the aioli in a blender and blend until smooth, place in refrigerator! When meat is done, scoop meat onto tortillas, top with your favorite taco toppings, and drizzle with chipotle aioli.Makes about 6 servings (depending on the size of your tortillas and how much meat you put on each one).
