What is your favorite thing to cook?

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?

I haven't made homemade pizza in quite a while. When I do, it's always awesome. Currently I'm into fish tacos. The secret is using panko japanese bread crumbs and serving with a sour cream/chipotle dressing. YUM!

Actually food. I love to try to cook anything. Roasts, to curry, to mexican, to tex mex. It just plain relaxes me. I couldn't specify one thing, that would be like asking me my type of girl or favorite food. To vague a request

+1 on homemade pizza although I'm still struggling with getting the crust the way I like.

Probably my grilled stuffed burritos. Like Taco Bell's...but actually edible.

Ingredients:
  • Cooked shredded chicken (optionally leftover beef or pork, sliced thin)
  • Refried beans
  • Spanish style rice
  • Diced tomatoes
  • Sliced avocado
  • Diced white onions
  • Grated cheese
  • Sliced black olives

Nuke or steam the tortillas to make them pliable. The fillings are all optional, but the beans go on first, cheese goes on last. Once rolled I toast them on a comal edge down which seals them, then turn them to toast all sides. Something about toasting them transforms the flavors and melts the cheese nicely.

Sometimes I'll add green chile strips, though usually the spice level is up to the eater choosing from my hot sauce collection.

Favorite food to cook, or favorite food to cook and then eat?

I love cooking garlic. Sauteed in olive oil. The smell that fills the kitchen is one of the best sensations one can experience without getting your hands wet.

It almost doesn't matter what I then add to the pan, and I'm indifferent to eating. But stir frying garlic in oil is win.

Most things Mexican are fun and easy to cook for me. I've become a master at the seasoned ground beef part....and know how to make it to any heat level.

I make a chicken casserole with corn tortillas, cheese, etc and cream of chicken soup that is wonderful. In fact, we call it Mexican Chicken. I also like the simple approach and marinate chicken pieces in a salsa/key lime/chili powder/cumin, etc overnight then grill. Eat as entree or tear up and use in burritos.
