Quesadilla carne asada from Chronic Taco features carne asada meat as its main ingredient. Besides this, the dish also features a few other ingredients that you need to keep handy during the preparation.



For Carne Asada


  • ½ cup fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, minced or crushed
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 pound skirt/flank steak
  • ½ small white onion, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro


For the quesadillas


  • 4 large tortillas
  • 4 cups cheese
  • 1 cup pico de gallo
  • Non-stick cooking spray or neutral oil


Method of Preparation


  1. To begin with the recipe, combine all the ingredients for the marinade in a bowl with a lid.
  2. Then, cut the steak against the grain into ¼” – ½” strips and then cut the strips into ¼” – ½” pieces. Now, transfer the steak to the container with the marinade, cover or seal, and refrigerate for at least one hour, but not more than 24 hours. You can remove the skirt steak from the marinade after 1 hour, pat dry, and set aside.
  3. The next step is to heat a grill pan or cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Once it becomes hot, cook the steak, while stirring occasionally, for about 3 minutes then raise heat to high and cook for an additional 2 minutes until the meat is browned and cooked through. Remove from heat and set aside.
  4. Place another large skillet and place it over medium-low heat.
  5. Once the skillet is hot, spray with non-stick cooking spray then flatly place a tortilla in it. Sprinkle with one cup of cheese, ¼ of the steak, and ¼ cup of pico de gallo. Cook for two minutes until the cheese begins to melt then fold the tortilla into the shape of a quesadilla. Cook for one minute then flip and cook for another 1-2 minute. Remove from heat and repeat the same procedure with remaining ingredients, spraying the skillet with more oil in between each quesadilla.
  6. Serve warm with guacamole or sliced avocado, sour cream, and salsa.

I was really excited to try this place out.. but was very disappointed. I asked for a carne asada quesadilla with no onions JUST cilantro. When I got home I was surprised with a quesadilla WITH onions and NO MEAT. A quesadilla with cilantro and onions, All bad.

Having Mexican like foods in Hawai'i has come a long way from not having any. I'm thankful for any Mexican food like restaurants and Mexican restaurants that open on the Aina. With that said, I appreciate Chronic Taco making their first foundation on O'ahu. Chronic Taco's from what I've gathered is a California based chain. I've never tried them when I was living back in San Diego because I love mom and pop shops so much better. However I can honestly say Chronic Taco's is fairly similar to Chipotles style and I actually like them enough to keep coming back. Here are my thoughts... Chronic Taco's (CT's) is located in Kapahalu within the Safeway shopping center along with a few other eateries. Parking is free and available above Safeway or in front of CT's brick and mortar. Order to sit inside, outdoors or to go. The shop is well kept and clean. Customer service has always been good here and the people are fun to talk to. Remember this is similar to Chipotle's and Subway's set up. It's a build your own type menu with a plethora of baja style options to apply to any chosen protein. This is also helpful for anyone with restricted diets. Specialty items like potato taco's, fries, and nachos and Cali Burrito's and baja style options are available. My go to whenever I need some comfort food is the small burrito with freshly beer battered fish, or the baja style shrimp and beef taco's in corn tortilla and it's spicy! I like it! The sauces are delicious and the guac is real not cheap from the mix. The small burrito is perfect for me because the regular size is humongous. How to Order 1) Pick your Base-taco/burrito-small or large, bowl-rito (without flour tortilla or corn shell), tostada, salad, quesadilla, torta 2) Choose from a variety of proteins- Pollo, carnitas, al pastor, carne asada, fish or shrimp (beer battered or broiled), vegetarian 3) Pick your carbs (beans, rice, spanish rice) 4) Veggies 5) Sauces (the guac is made fresh guys! But cost extra) **Check in via the Yelp app and score free Churro Bites** It's a great place for breakfast lunch and dinner. I've not tried their breakfast menu yet. Nutrition information is available on their website. My happy half frequents CT's and have scored a few free burrito's through the app. Download the Chronic Taco mobile app, earn 1 point per every $1 spent. Skip the line and order ahead like Starbucks style and walk in and out like you're VIP by also ordering from the app. IG: Chronic Tacos/Chronic Tacos Hawaii

Went on a Saturday just about 1pm ...so I kinda expected it to be busy. There was a line of about 4 people in front of me. Now I'm not the most impatient person and frankly I had a craving for a quesadilla so I waited. To my surprise there is only one person there to do the cooking and warming up of stuff...there were 2 other employees one time add the toppings and one to ring up the order. The thing that seemed strange was they just handled one persons order at a time. This obviously made the wait longer and dude doing the cooking seemed irritated. The toppings girl kinda just splashed stuff on the food. I'm not sure if she was new so I don't really know what her deal was. So the food...I got 2 fish tacos and a chicken quesadilla. It was just alright. I mean it was better then a fast food place but that was about it. I guess I will hand to try another time to really talk about the food...but I do know on a Saturday afternoon around lunch time...should probably have a couple more people to move the customers along. See ya!
