Hello Mexican Tacos! May 13, 2011

The weather is finally breaking and we have seen sun for a couple of days here in Michigan 😉 I thought tonight would be a perfect night to make authentic Mexican tacos, some fresh salsa and of course some Margarettas to enjoy outside on the deck.

When I say Mexican tacos I mean their version not the American version.  You see, Americans are the ones who decided we needed to put the shredded cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, bla, bla,bla on the tacos.  A Mexican taco consists of much less “stuff” and a lot more flavor.  Their tacos are made with shredded chicken (I use chicken breast) or shredded beef ( use tenderloin to keep the fat down). You can use a flour or corn tortilla but either way remember to find some of the Banderita brand because they are low in fat or fat free, which is always a plus.

As I stated there is a huge difference between American and Mexican tacos.  For a Mexican taco all you need is a couple of simple ingredients to create a mouth watering, delectable taco.  The shredded meat, fresh cilantro, chopped onion and fresh lime…..oh and of course the tortilla.  Warm your tortilla, place shredded meat in half of the tortilla, sprinkle some chopped onion, fresh cilantro and squeeze some lime juice.  Fold the tortilla in half and devour!  Yummmmm.  So good and pretty low in fat.  You can put hot sauce on the taco if you choose to.  I make sure that I season my meat in some good spice so that nothing more is needed.

I hope that you will give the Mexican version of tacos a chance.  I think that you will enjoy them as much as we do.   Enjoy 🙂
