You did not think I would do Mexican week without some tacos did you!?
I mean tacos are a MUST.
Especially for a holiday like New Years when some people don’t want to sit down for a fancy meal, but they still want to… you know.. eat some real food.
With tacos you can walk and talk, sit on couch, hang out by the fire or even eat on the go.
Not going to lie, tacos are kind of my dream food. I love them and all the different combos you can do.
Any yes, that is a big old pile of spicy mexican french fries in the photo below.
I totally just put french fries on a taco.
Here is the deal with these tacos.
The only reason the idea came into my head was because my cousins who are in town, received a box of homegrown California beef and chicken for Christmas from their Aunt and Uncle who are farmers in Southern California. Yup, they shipped pounds and pounds of beef and chicken right to our door step. All organic too, which is just kind of awesome in my mind.
Anyway, one of the meats was Carne Asada. Yeah, well that had to be made into tacos, right away.
Instead of grilling the meat I threw it in the crockpot to let it cook low and slow. I honestly was not sure how a meat like this would do in the crockpot, but it was so good.
Moist, tender and SO flavorful.
The house smells amazing all day, and come dinner or party time or snack time or just whenever, all you have to do is assemble the tacos.
The meat shreds incredibly well. Mine literally just fell apart. It was a beautiful thing.
And now we have tacos for days.
Tacos for days is a very good thing.
The whole family is headed to Ski Cooper today, so coming home to tacos will be perfect. Snowboarding in the cold all day means only one thing. Well actually two, everyone will most likely be heading home cold, tired and starving. Oops I guess that was three.
But really, the cold makes you ravenous. Especially when you know tacos like these are waiting for you.
The rest of the family would say the only thing this meal needs is some margs.
And I totally agree. Just keep mine virgin and go heavy on the salt.
Now can we just devour these already? Please?
