How to Make a Taco

Step One

As stated above I will be giving you all step by step tutorial on how to make tacos in the comfort of your own home, just in case food trucks aren’t your thing. Step one, is to gather all you ingredients. Your ingredients are tortillas, meat, onions, cilantro, lime and salt. Now you can prepare you ingredients by dicing up your cilantro and onions into very small pieces.

Step Two

The next step, is cooking your meat. You can just buy meat that is already cooked and then just assemble your taco at home. Another options is actually cooking it. You can go to your local butcher shop or a Mexican store called , La Michocana or La Moreliana. These stores sell fresh meat that are especially marinated for making tacos. For this example I am going to be using alpastor that has already been marinated. You then need to warm up a large pan and then put the meat on there and just leave it. Come check on it every 2 minutes and stir it until cooked.

Step Three

Next, let’s cook the tortillas. You will need a comal or another very large pan. Let that heat up and then you can sprinkle some water one it and if it evaporates immediately then you can start putting tortillas on it. Leave the tortillas on there according to you liking, I like mine crispy so I was until the edges are a little brown and then I flip it over and repeat. Now that your tortillas are done don’t forget to wrap them up in aluminum foil to keep them warm while your meat is still cooking.

Step Four

Now it is time to assemble your taco. You first grab a plate then place the amount of tortillas that you want. You put them right next to each other like in the picture above. Next, you fill up the tortillas with meat. Now it is time for condiments. You are going to sprinkle some onions and cilantro to your liking. This next step is optional, but recommended, you can know drizzle some salsa for the finishing touch. You now have yourself a perfect, delicious, beautiful taco that is ready for you to enjoy.
