Mmm… tacos

It’s been way too long without tacos around here.  LOL   These started with deep fried flour tortillas.  It doesn’t take long in the hot oil for these to crisp up so watch ’em closely.  I let these go just a few seconds too long and they were a bit stiff and creased rather than folded, but they didn’t break and fall apart so there’s that.  I bet if I did these everyday I’d get good at it.

For fillings I had some roast pork so I sliced some of that and minced some onions and fresh jalapenos.  Salsa, sour cream, and shredded cheddar went over the pork and a spoonful of refried beans.  Delicious.  I’ll add that I’m really happy that I have cilantro in a container growing just a few steps outside the front door.  My parsley is growing OK but the cilantro, or “soap weed” as Mrs J calls it, is just going wild.  Makes a great garnish even if we are not crazy about the taste.
