Today I did a little prep work to prepare my taste buds for Cinco de Mayo by eating these tacos:
spicy pork, steak and chorizo tacos topped with onion and cilantro and fresh lime juice.
Hubby and I have been doing taco lunch dates for the past few weeks while PB is at school. Best idea ever. These tacos are amazing!! It is a tiny little grocery store/ restaurant so I picked up some spices when I was here too.
Over the next 2 days I am going to share 2 very easy recipes that can be whipped up with the same ingredients and in no time and you can be celebrating Cinco de Mayo!
Here is everything I will need to make my celebration delicious:
poblano peppers, onion, jalapeno pepper, garlic, avocado, tomatoes, and limes
cilantro, shredded beef, tortillas, queso blanco, queso fresco, corn, tortillas, tortilla chips.
You could easily use a rotisserie chicken instead of beef for an even easier meal!!
I made the shredded beef today. It is a beef roast that I cooked at 325 degrees in the oven until the inserted thermometer read 145 degrees.
I cooked the beef on a roasting rack over a cookie sheet covered with aluminum foil. Spray the roasting rack with cooking oil for easier cleanup. Then I patted the beef dry with a paper towel and coated it with salt, pepper, garlic powder, Mexican chili powder, Mexican oregano and olive oil. It took less than 2 hours in the oven and I let it cool and pulled it apart with my hands. Now my beef is all ready for my 2 recipes! Stay tuned for tomorrow!!
