Make sure the beef tenderloin is fresh and high quality.


  • 1 pound beef tenderloin
  • 1 medium white onion
  • 2 medium poblano peppers
  • 2 ounces canola oil
  • 3 ounces soy sauce
  • Spices such as salt, garlic, and black pepper
  • 6 ounces asadero cheese
  • 8 corn tortillas


Cut beef tenderloins into 1/4-inch cubes. Cut the onions and poblanos into small strips. Heat canola oil in a cast-iron pan over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the beef tenderloin and cook half way, then add the onions and poblano pepper strips. Add any sauce with spices just before you remove meat to serve. In another pan, cook the asadero cheese over medium heat on both sides until soft.
Serve with hot corn tortillas. Put 4 tortillas on each plate. Make a large taco using two tortillas for each taco, adding first the asadero cheese, then the meat with the onions and poblano peppers.
