Tacos- From Mexico With Love

By Fernandes Torres

They started out as tortillas with small fish fillings, made their way to American kitchens and changed their name to tacos. Its just another dish that has its roots in traditional Mexico. Currently it is found throughout the country and the regions surrounding it, with the rest of the world not shying away from it either. It has diversified in variety, owing to the very many kinds of fillings that can be used. From rare ones like seafood to more locally available like ground beef and carne asada, tacos have become an American staple. And as you would expect, there are gourmet recipes of the dish as well.

The variation and versatility there is with tacos is brought about by the different kinds of fillings that can be used. Vegetable fillings are preferred by the non-conformist crowd of vegans, but chicken, pork and beef fillings are enjoyed by everyone else. Though not very popular with Mexico where they first started, American tortillas are made into a U-shape before it is filled. In the natural, the tortillas are meant to be flattened. The playful design is a sight for sore eyes, and a good way to add a twist to this very common dish.

A taco dish is hardly one that should take you long to make. With your tortillas ready, preparing the fillings is the easy part. Tortillas are made with tortilla dough which is kneaded, rolled into balls, flattened and finally fried.

The second part is with the tortilla fillings. Ground beef and carne asada are the most popular, though pork, chicken and seafood fillings are just as easy to find. Making ground beef tacos is easy. All you need is about a pound of ground beef, an onion and pepper. You need to choose your taco seasoning ingredients as well- oregano, paprika, chili and garlic powders, cumin, salt and pepper.

You first cook the beef until brown and then add onions and pepper. Stir as you add, until beef no longer has a pink coloring. Add the seasoning ingredients, some water. It should simmer for a while before you serve. This is basically one of the easiest recipes you can get. If you have more time, you could add your ingredients list to include sour cream, taco sauce, guacamole, lime wedges and so on. You can add garnishes such as salsa, cilantro and lettuce to add to the flavor.

Tacos have high calories, so if you always watch what you eat, make sure you dont exceed the number of calories you are used to taking. But even when you are watching your weight, you can attest to the rich, unforgettable taste that tacos give.
