Another Plate of Tacos, Please?Friday, April 30, 2010 Mary Anne Velasco
Aside from Kebab, if there's one more foreign dish I am having difficulties saying no to ... it's definitely tacos. I can have a plate of tacos for straight three dinner services and still find it delectable. I am just glad that this dish is so easy to fix or else, I might be spending a lot of hours in the kitchen most days of my life.
"A taco (pronounced /ˈtɑːkoʊ/) is a traditional Mexican dish composed of a corn or wheat tortilla folded or rolled around a filling. A taco can be made with a variety of fillings, including beef, chicken, seafood, vegetables and cheese, allowing for great versatility and variety. A taco is generally eaten without utensils and is often accompanied by garnishes such as salsa, cilantro, tomatoes, onions and lettuce."
My boyfriend and I usually do beef tacos. In some instances, we go for chicken or pork. But as much as possible, we stick to beef as it is a lot tastier than the other two.
[The way I like my plate of tacos ---chips, beef with taco spice, cheese, sour cream, hot taco sauce and some onion bits]
Although some use taco shells [folded tortilla made out of wheat as their filling holder], I have my taco fillings arranged on top of layers of thinly sliced potato [Lay's if available] or corn chips. For no particular reason, I enjoy tacos more this way. My boyfriend usually goes for the tortilla bread [thin flat round bread] or the taco shells. But there are times when he fixes his with chips, too.
Hmmm... tacos tacos tacos... I think we are going to have another taco Friday later tonight!
