Authentic Taco Recipe?

Need a taco recipe, and I'm not talking about one you mix with a pound of ground beef from Jewel. I'm talking about one you use on actual taco meat from a suspect mexican supermarket. I had a good one at one point but have lost track that included seasoning salt, onions and lime.

Think is that calling something authentic taco is like saying give me an authentic burger recepy.

That said, you do have alternatives. Cumin is the spice that most people are not familiar on most "Mexican" flavoring.

If you want easy, get Sason Goya, they come in little packets all premixed, but are better than the mixture you get from "taco" seasoning.

If you want to make your own use Onions, Garlic, Cumin, Salt. I think lime is better for after the meat is prepared and not before.

An easy taco meat preparation method that will come out delicious is

1 Onion, 2/3 Tomatoes, Garlic (fresh is better, crush it yourself), Salt and Cumin.
Heat from Jalapenos (keep seeds for more hawtness) Cayenne pepper works to.

Start by chipping the Jalapenos and add them to the pan where you will cook the whole thing. Grease the pan with whatever you find healthier.

Once they are roasted and you start to smell (or cry) then add the onion and the tomato.

You can chop, but I prefer to use a cheese grater for quickness and ease.

Once you have a nice sauce going, lower the heat and simmer for a couple of minutes. You should pre brown the meat seperate so you can drain it, and just add the sauce to the meat. Then let it simmer up to the point that you prefer the juiciness, some people like it drier, some people like slappy joe.

Enjoy!

To be authentic, you must be Mexican.

The way I make it for hard shell tacos is

1 pound of ground beef
1 can if mixed vegi's

Brown the beef, season with adobo, salt and pepper. drain the fat add vegi's and turn off.

In a skillet on medium heat with oil. Warm tortilla 's. (corn) in microwave. Add a tablespoon or 2 in the tortilla fold in half and fry both sides. Place in a dish to drain oil.
Add your condiments and enjoy.

Of course don't forget to drink DOS XX.

Stay thirsty my friends.

If you want to be lazy you can buy pre-seasoned meat similar to the recipe logtar posted at most little Mexican grocery stores. I love the one in my neighborhood. Their meat and produce is better than Jewel and they have home made tamales and carnitas on the weekends. Good stuff.

VATOS LOCOS 4EVER, lol wow I had not thought of that movie in years, LOL

Ody, you cannot find hard shell tacos in Mexico... maybe a taco stand with disappearing dogs around it, but hard shell tacos.

Its on Brah! any time you want to test your Spanish cooking against mine is on. I can cook Colombian, Cuban, Puerto Rican and even Mexican.

My wife lived in Mexico and LOVES Mexican food (as do I of course)...but hates corn tortillas. I give her endless shit over that.

oil/fry corn tortillas are where it's at.

I'm trying John's recipe this weekend!
