I love to cook tacos. Easy to make and oh so fun to eat!
I really do not do anything special with the meat. Brown it in a skillet with some salt, pepper, garlic, chili powder.
Back in the day, I used to fry my own taco shells in hot oil. It was fun to try and get the tortillas in just the right shape, but it made a mess and clean up was a hassle. These days, I just buy the premade taco shells.
The secret to my tacos is the lettuce. I learned this from my father.
I take regular iceberg lettuce and slice it up pretty thin. Not really diced, just thinly cut. Then I add salad vinegar, olive oil, Salad Supreme brand salad seasoning mix and a few splashes of Tabasco pepper sauce.
With this spicy lettuce, there is no need for any other sauces etc on the tacos. Just seasoned ground beef, lettuce, cheese and diced tomatos if you like tomatos. I do not, so I leave them off.
I also make a decent rice, by adding a bit of lime and cilantro to the rice and I substitute some picante sauce and a dash of ketchup for part of the water to cook the white rice in.
So Foo, what is your all time favorite thing to cook?
