Those tacos are WAY too high class for me, I like the cheapo, out of the box, ground beef version just fine. My idea of topping is lettuce, cheese, black olives and sour cream, no guacamole here! But, I'll take whatever you're serving. :drool:

I like that too - and Taco Bell - and especially Jack-in-the-box tacos!!!

FYI - it's not guacamole, it's my green sauce: http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,18462.msg239753.html#msg239753

Sirloin marinated with lime, soy sauce, garlic powder, black pepper, and chili powder.

Sorry  TXC, I see that that isn't guac,but green chili sauce. I'd eat that sauce on anything, right now I'm imagining it on a burger or pulled pork sandwich.

I made some TexMex beef fajita tacos for Omid last night, and he took me to get some incredible Persian food for lunch today.

My first attempt.

I made the green sauce (per TXCraig's recipe).  We made our first attempt at homemade corn tortillas (it was really easy).

I had done a Cuban-style roast pork a few days ago and shedded the meat.  I cubed up the shredded pork, seasoned with some chipotle powder salt and squeeze of lime, and saute'd and reheated in a frying pan.

Then layered  green sauce, roast pork, queso fresco, cilantro, onions, tomato and a dolop of sour cream.

SUPER yummy!

Craig,

They were delicious.  Bill used La Banderita corn tortillas and made then in a hot pan with oil.  He makes his own seasoning sauce for the hamburg.

Bob,

Yes, Trenton Bill does know his way around in a kitchen.  He made me pound cake too and also sour cream waffles.  Bill has so many kitchen gadgets I don't have.  :-D  I could learn a lot from Trenton Bill.  He was going to show me how to make fried rice, but we got too busy on Sunday.  He can make many Chinese foods too.

After coming back from my cruise to Belize and Cozumel... I was inspired to have some authentic tacos...

So I made a marinade of the following.

2 TBS freshly ground achiote seeds (ground in spice grinder to fine powder)
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp salt
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp chipotle powder
Juice of 1 navel orange
Juice of 2 limes

I mixed into a slurry and marinated 4 chicken thighs (bone-in) and with skin and stuck in vacuum marinader for 2-3 hours

Then I grilled for about 30-40 minutes  and removed the skin/bones and chopped the meat.

I made a bunch of bowls of various accompaniments...

Fresh cilantro leaves
Sweet onion
Tomato
Green onion
Queso Fresco
Sour cream
Fresh Lime slices
Roasted Jalapenos cut into strips

Here are all the variations I concocted... so delicious... added a squeeze of fresh lime to each!

Don't forget my Killer Margarita made with fresh lime juice, reposado Tequila, agave, and Contreau
