THROW OUT EVERYTHING IN YOUR FRIDGE TO MAKE ROOM FOR TACOS.

j8715 | Oct 1, 2011 12:48 PM

I've been having a powerful lust lately for tacos. I don't care anything at all about tradition or nomenclature. You can keep your deep knowledge of the history and the exact oxford dictionary meaning of tacos to yourself, I just want ideas of tastey things to put in tortillas.

Recently i've done fish w/ shredded cabbage and hot sauce. Also Dianna Kennedy's shredded chicken that is cooked with some tomato, jalapenos and onion. then again dressed with shredded cabbage and this time some cheese. Also something that was a hanger steak w/ cumin and some grilled onions and peppers and a bit of cheese.

Next up is chorizo and potato. Dianna uses this filling for something a lil different but I think tacos will be good.

Also, because I think this comes up from time to time and there is an overwhelming amount of crap advice out there on the subject. . . .

HOW TO HEAT UP STORE BOUGHT CORN TORTILLAS.

If you can't get get fresh made ones, the ones in the bag aren't bad. RUB them with a bit of water, let them sit a minute or two in a stack next to your black cast iron pan (if you don't have this then why are you bothering to cook? ) that is getting medium hot. If you have a griddle its even better because you have more space. about 30 sec a side should do it. more if you like the brown spots here and there.
