I’ll admit it, I can eat Mexican food a lot. Hehe when I get the itch to start making tacos or burritos, I go pretty hardcore. I’ll make enough to last for a few days, and pretty much live on it until it’s gone or I’m burnt out. LOL probably not what a lot of people would wanna do but it works for me.
When I was growing up, my mom only ever made tacos from a kit. Ya know, it has the shells and a seasoning packet and maybe some taco sauce and that’s it. You add everything else. I loved them. Leftover crunchy tacos was perfect for lunches home. Now that I’ve been doing my own cooking for the last decade or more, I’ve expanded my horizons quite a bit.
I now know how delicious corn tortillas are (which is better for me anyway, seeing I’m gluten intolerant). I don’t need seasoning packets; I have a drawer full of spices so I can make food from all over the globe. I’m a sucker for adding a ton of veggies to dishes, sofrito is my friend, and it’s a shame I can’t buy Mexican sour cream where I live currently. That stuff is to die for.
