How to make good Mexican tacos

Learn the basics of the real tacos and surprise your family and guests with it. As a note, these are not “Taco Bell” tacos. These are the real thing!

Ingredients

  • Real corn tortillas
  • Beef meat (fillet or some kind of meat you would want to grill)
  • Canned beans
  • An onion
  • Handful of coriander
  • Avocado, turnips (optional, recommended)
  • 1 Persian lime

Steps

  • Buy real tortillas: This is maybe one of the most important things! You will need soft corn tortillas. You can find them in Mexican shops and “Tortillerias”, which is a small Tortilla Factory. You could even make them yourself from dried corn flour if you are willing to “get your hands dirty”. You could also buy a “Instant Corn Masa” Mix.
  • Wash and disinfect the vegetables.
  • Dice the onion.
  • Chop the coriander thoroughly. Make it as small as possible.
  • Grill the meat until you feel it is well done.
  • Cook the beans in a pot. Once done put them in a small plate.
  • While the meat is in the grill, warm the tortillas on a pan just a little, or warm them up in your oven/microwave. Put the tortillas in a plate.
  • Once the meat is done, cut it in small squares, making horizontal and vertical cuts.
  • Put the meat on one the side of the tortilla and cover it with the other side of the tortilla.
  • Cut the lime by half (or quarters if it’s too big) and put it in the plate.
  • Take everything to the table so everyone can add their own onion, coriander, beans and avocado. Once you have all what you want in your taco, put a twist of lime on top.
  • Finished.
