I love tacos in all their forms, even the American version with the hard taco shells filled with spiced ground beef. Okay, maybe not the fast food versions with the mystery meat and orange stuff that passes for cheese, but I'll go for almost any other version of tacos. While wandering the supermarket the other day, I spotted the corn tortillas and got a hankerin for the taqueria or street vendor type tacos that are served up simply with 2 small corn tortillas, topped with meat and a simple onion, cilantro and lime salsa. Unfortunately, the taco size tortillas only come in packs of 36, so it looks like I have a week of taco recipes ahead of me. It's a burden that I will just force myself to bear.

I'll start off with carne asada tomorrow, it's marinating right now. They didn't have any flank steak, so I went with loin which is another good option. Carnitas will be next, followed by lengua if I can find it. If I could get a decent vertical rotisserie, I would attempt Al Pastor, not to mention making some proper gyros, but I have yeat to find that piece of equipment in a form and price that would work in my home kitchen.

Reports and recipes to follow.
