My homemade taco is the best in the world – really.  At least Mister and I think so 🙂

My homemade taco is the best

I had my first taco when I was 17 and had moved from Maui to Washington to go to college.  I had never seen one before (I don’t think they existed on Maui back then; nor did pizza by the way).  I immediately liked it and have ever since.  When we go out to Mexican dinner, that is what I usually order and every restaurant is different.  I’ve had a few bad ones and lots of good ones and a couple really really good ones.  When I make them at home I combine the ingredients that I like from my various experiences to make the best ones in the world 😀  I used to season my meat with the seasoning envelopes that I bought at the store, but over the last few years, I have been making it from scratch using a recipe I found online.  99.9% of the time I use ground pork but have used ground beef (hamburger) and ground turkey also.  I prefer corn to flour shells, spinach or kale to lettuce and crumbled cheese to the Mexican mix.  They are doubly good when paired with my homemade salsa. *licking my lips*  If we have that on hand, I don’t even bother to cut up tomatoes!

So here is the mixture that I put in a pound of cooked ground pork and simmer till the liquid is gone –

1 T dried onions

2 t chili powder

1 t sea salt

1 t garlic powder

1 t cornstarch

1 t cumin

1/2 t cayenne pepper

3/4 cup water

I use white corn tortillas and barely brown both sides in a little olive oil, lay it on a paper towel, sprinkle a little salt on one side (which is the outside) then fold over.

I admit I always eat one too many when I make these for supper lol
