Real Tacos, Mexican Style
What You Need:
HEAT A LARGE FRYING PAN AND ADD
  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil
  • ½ yellow onion, peeled and sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, cored, seeded, and sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped

    SAUTE FOR A MOMENT AND ADD THE DICED TONGUE TO THE PAN ALONG WITH
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tablespoons dry sherry

    GARNISH WITH
  • Chopped scallions
  • Thinly sliced lettuce
  • Homemade Salsa
  • Sour cream (optional)
  • Chopped fresh coriander (optional)

  • How To Cook:
    TO PREPARE THE TACOS:
    1. Choose any of these meat fillings and place some in the center of a warm wheat tortilla.

    2. Saute the meat until all is hot.

    BEEF TACO FLLLING:
    1. Prepare a beef pot roast as in Cuban Ropa Vieja, adding to the recipe ½ teaspoon ground cumin and 1 teaspoon chili powder.

    2. Cook the meat, covered, then debone and shred it. Return it to the sauce and keep warm.

    PORK TACO FLLLING:
    1. Prepare a boneless pork roast as above. Shred the meat and keep it warm in the sauce.

    CHICKEN TACO FLLLING:
    1. Prepare a cut-up chicken as in the above recipes. Debone, shred, and keep the meat warm in the sauce.

    TONGUE TACO FLLLING:
    1. This one is a bit unusual but well worth the effort. Simmer a whole beef tongue, covered with water, along with 2 ribs of celery and a couple of chopped carrots.

    2. Add a chopped yellow onion and 2 bay leaves. Add 2 teaspoons salt and 8 whole peppercorns.

    3. Cook, at a low simmer, for 3 hours. Allow the meat to cool in the liquid. Peel the tongue and cut into ¼-inch dice.
