Tacos are always yummy to me. Funny enough I prefer soft tacos better than the over crunchy ones, but above all I want my tacos to be made of fried corn Tortilla and not that Taco Bell uses. Those hard shells break too easy in the first bite and has way less flavour.

I am right now not craving for the classic chicken or beef healthy looking ones, I am craving for these others:
You buy these usually in small locals, you can add lemon, a mix of finely cut onion and coriander, and of course from a small variety of salsas. That with a cold coca-cola (I miss the glass bottles. They rule over plastic and tins).


I admit commercial 'for tacos' type of tortilla, hard as the ones found in a bag of chips, are a good choice for people looking to avoid unnecessary grease but... If I was to use that kind of tortilla, I'd eat the content in a 'tostada' instead. I think it works better.

Tostada are fried tortillas disks with stuff at the top, you may have beans or tuna, avocado, tomato, lettuce or cabagge, etc.. They still break easily but I think are yummy and easier to eat. the idea with the tostada is that they are easy to prepare so you typically use fresh ingredients. You can use sour cream or something not too runny for the topping.

I love Mexican rice, I forgot who didn't like it but I don't care the tomatoes and chicken stock gives it a nice flavour to me and I love to have that with my tacos. This is the texture:

Not watery, no sticky, each grain is separated and impregnated with the garlic, onion, tomato sauce and condiments. It is not overflowing you with flavour so it still is a good side dish, yet it has enough flavour of its own that you can easily urn it into a main dish adding something else like thinly cut meat (kids love to add banana slices instead LOL! ).

Of course I miss many other dishes like the enchiladas, nachos, chile colorado (pork + potatoes and chili), chilaquiles (lazy enchiladas), capirotada... but funny enough in Aussie I am missing the 'veggie stew' or well, the veggie water like Dumpy has mocked it before, why, because at home didn't have that blended onion, pumpkin, etc with sour cream that English speaking people associate with the word soup. Instead for our dish we have chunks corn, beef or chicken, potatoes, carrots, cabbage, etc boiling in water for hours until they are cooked, of course, they are not all added in one go, but depending how much they take to cook, as the idea is taht they finish around the same time, in itself the dish takes one to three hours depending amount and if you have a pressure cooker. The dish is usually accompanied with a small bowl of rice and lemon.


May not look as yummy but in a very cold day, I found myself looking forward to it. Yes you can have tortillas with it too. Some people use the tortilla to absorb the liquid. It taste good, but it takes skill to make a great 'caldo', if you overcook them the stuff will break easily and will not look good, but if you do it right the vegetables look fresh and colourful and inviting.

I think it's about time I tried a taco, I haven't ever tasted one before. The only Mexican food I can think of is perhaps nachos with cheese and salsa. Makes my mouth water.
