SRC: Mexican Street Food

Little Image

Guys, I love Mexican food. Well, at least all the Mexican food I’ve ever had, which has almost always been made by Americans. Most of whom don’t have a drop of Hispanic blood in them. And very few, have ever set foot in Central America.

The one of the few exceptions is many years ago, I ate a Tamale. Like a sure enough, wrapped in corn husks by a lady from Mexico, Tamale. They were pale soft things, about the size of a bar of soap. The outside layer was corn husks. When you unwrapped them there was a layer of soft, white, damp, grainy I don’t know what. And when you cut through that there was a colorful mixture of meat and spices inside.Very portable food.

The cilantro and onions with the beef was outstandingly delicious on the bland corn tortillas.

Well, back in July my brother suggested I make Tacos del Verde aka Mexican street food. So I when to Pintrest and found this recipe. I also figured that maybe just meat, cilantro, onions, and corn tortillas wouldn’t fill us up so I found a recipe for fancy refried beans and corn.

The meal was a success. The only thing I would do next time is warm up our tortillas a little. When we put the meat in them and tried to pick them up they cracked down the center and all the goodies fell out. 😦

  1. Thanks for the link–I hope you loved the beans. The key to a great corn tortilla is to heat it in a cast iron skillet with a little lard brushed on each side (and heat each side). Let it get a little blistered on each side and I promise, perfect tortillas!
