  1. Tacos come in many shapes and sizes, and have seen numerous adaptations since they made their way over the border and slowly worked their way into everyday American cuisine. Seriously, I doubt there is a single Scooper here who doesn’t like a good taco in one form or another.

    I like to stick to the more ‘classic’ format when it comes to tacos: seasoned meat, a simple salsa of chopped onions and jalapeños with a dash of salt and lime juice, and a generous dolop of home made guacamole, all piled up on doubled-up small corn tortillas.

    If you have the patience to make carnitas (slow-braised pork), or are lucky enough to find tacos al pastor (pork tenderized in pineapple juice and then roasted on a revolving spit), you will reach taco heaven.

    However, you can get almost all the way there with carne asada tacos. Buy yourself some grass-fed beef sirloin. Give it a few whacks with a meat tenderizer. Rub some olive oil on there, then cover the steak with black pepper, chili powder, and a reasonable sprinkle of kosher salt on both sides. Grill it 4 minutes on each side to about medium. Let it rest a few minutes so that the juices distribute evenly. Then chop it up into bite sized strips. Throw the beef onto a couple of corn tortillas with a simple guac made with jalapeño, salt, lime juice, and cilantro if ya got it. Dig in.

    By the way, make sure that the Pacífico in the fridge is well-chilled for when its time to wash those tacos down (Sorry Clarion, ya can’t do Heineken with tacos).
