Taco Tuesday

 

Haven’t you heard? It’s TACO TUESDAY! If you love Mexican food as much as we do, then instead of visiting your local Del Taco or Holé Molé for some tacos, make some homemade tacos for you and your family and friends. Everything tastes better homemade and you are able to customize your food the way you want. You’ll definitively get more for your buck.

Today’s meal choice:

  1. Fajita Hard Tacos
  2. Carne Asada Hard Tacos
  3. Ground Beef Hard Tacos
  4. Carne Asada Soft Tacos

What you’ll need to make tacos:

  1. Choice of Meat: Fajita, Ground Beef, Carne Asada
  2. Corn Tortillas
  3. Tomatoes
  4. Onions
  5. Cilantro
  6. Mango (Optional)
  7. Avocado
  8. Lime
  9. Sour Cream
  10. Cheese

Extra:

  1. Chips and Salsa

Instructions:

  1. Start out by washing the vegetables (Tomatoes, Cilantro, Onions, Mangoes).
  2. Dice each one and place them in separate containers or plates. *I personally would suggest taking care of this process before meat so that once you have the meat cooked and cut, it will be hot and fresh when you put your tacos together. Store vegetables in refrigerator until you are ready to eat.
  3. Cook each type of meat on a frying pan. (Not all at once). Cook until meat is dark with little to no red coloring. Once cooked, be sure to drain the oil from the pan. For the ground beef, add onions, soy sauce, black pepper, Lawry Season Salt, and Lawry Garlic Salt for flavoring. Add until it fits your preference of level of saltiness.
  4. To make soft taco, take a tortilla and place on a dry frying pan over stove. Let it sit for 7-10 seconds before flipping to warm up the other side. Repeat process until tortilla is light brown. Slightly fold two ends of the tortilla and fill it with your meat preference, diced tomatoes, diced onions, guacamole, cheese.
  5. To make hard tacos, fill frying pan with thin layer of oil. Lay half of a tortilla while, with a tong, lift the other half vertical. Once the first half is fried (light brown color), lay the second half in the oil while slightly bending the fried half downwards creating the taco shape. Once second half is cooked, place tacos on a plate with paper towel underneath to absorb oil. Cool for 2-3 minutes before adding meat and vegetables.
  6. Enjoy!
