CROCK POT POST INCOMING!

you guys like chipotle barbacoa? eff right you do. I make it at home constantly.

get a big piece of beef. I have no idea what kind. usually get the one that's like a giant sqare.
cut it up into medium sized squares. usually like 6 out of the one big square.
seer that crap in some oil in a dutchy
now throw it in a crock pot. heat level LOW.
now smash up a can of chipotles and adobo
now smush out about 6 limes worth of lime juice
now dump a bunch of seasonsing in it (ground clove, oregeno, cumin, salt, pepper)
now dump in a cup of stock (beef, chicken, whatever)
now dump in like a half cup of cider vinegar
now blend up all that stuff after the crock pot part in blender and dump it on the meat
now throw in like 5 bay leaves
let it sit in that thing for like 8 hours
don't eat the bay leaves you stupid animals

lol, bay leaves.  I will try this but I certainly won't be adding any bay leaves.  "Want something to taste even more exactly how it would taste without a bay leaf, add 5 bay leaves!"  No thanks, none of my hard earned dollars will be lining the pockets of the scam artists from Big Bay Leaf.  /rant

A week of eating carnitas may or may not have led to me having an excruciatingly painful gout flare up.  But they were delicious regardless.

One of my lunch #acks is to go buy a couple of tacos at TB and then crush them over a bunch of lettuce (which I bought at Dillon's).

They're called "white people tacos" at my house. We probably have them once every other month. It's a great joy.
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

Love the daisy squeeze. Best part about tacos is you can mix and match.

I always have the regular fixings lettuce, tomato, onion, japs, cheese, a couple of taco sauces, sour cream. Rarely are two tacos on my plate the same.

Can't believe I've never had the daisy squeezable.  Just spooning it out of the tub getting meat juice and salsa and stuff all in it like some chump.

Nearly once per week. Here are my strong takes:

*Worth it to throw the shells in the oven for five minutes
*Lettuce is worth it and is available to buy already shredded
*The more taco sauces to choose from, the better - eating 3 tacos? use a different sauce for each!
*Combine sauces
*I could drink Taco Bell green sauce straight from the bottle (and have)
*Sour cream is a level up from no sour cream
*With tub sour cream, you've gotta stir that crap up good

I make white people tacos 2 or 3 times a month.  Usually crispy, sometimes soft.  But get this, sometimes I even bust out the double decker taco routine.  A real blast from the past.

As for sour cream I bought my first little tub of it for the first time in about 10 years.

At least once a week.

Taco Shells - La Tiara are good, but haven't found in Wisconsin.  Local ethnic food grocery store makes fresh corn tortillas and chips daily.  50 for $1.50.  easy enough to put a small bit of oil in a skillet and make homemade hard shells.

Ground Beef- (if it's fatty, drain fat, if not, leave the small amount in) Salt and Pepper while browning

Seasoning - I make a big batch of this mixture solely for tacos. - and don't skimp on the seasoning.
Chili chowder
Cumin
Coriander
Smoked Paprika
Oregano - Mexican if you can get it
cayenne - if you like some heat and don't have a 3 yr old that can't handle spicy food
Onion chowder and Garlic chowder (if you're too lazy to dice onion and garlic)

If you like the meat with a little sauce add some corn starch to the above seasoning and add in some beef broth when mixing in the seasoning. cook until thick.

Lettuce, Sour Creme, Salsa, onions, cilantro as fixings

Sometimes I go all tex-mex cheddar cheese, but a mexican cheese like Chihuahua is really good.

Rice
cup of rice - cook in a tablespoon or two of veggie oil for a couple minutes.  throw in some cumin, garlic chowder, smoked paprika, salt. after another minute add in half cup of your favorite chunky salsa(or pico) and cup and half(or 3/4, depends on how watery your salsa is) of chicken broth/stock. bring to boil, simmer on low for 20 mins. after 20 mins cut the heat and let sit covered for another 20 mins. <trust me.


Fancy

not really fancy, but onions, garlic, jalapenos/chipotles, salsa, spices, lime juice, cilantro, chicken.  Pressure cooker for like 10-20 mins.(or slow cooker for 8 hours, your choice).  shred it.

The above works really good for baked chimichangas as well.  Roll the shredded chicken up with some chihuahua cheese.  melt butter with equal part oil.  brush a baking pan with the butter/oil mix.  brush the tops of the chimis with the mixture.(start with the seam down)  bake 5-10 mins at I think 400(don't have my notes), then flip chimis, brush the tops again and bake another 5-10 mins. until golden brown.

i mean, dear God are there people who eat the shells right out of the box w/o reheating them?  lol, 250 degrees for 5 minutes otherwise it's gross.

i'm concerned about the shredded lettuce, not sure why, just seems weird.  how do the shred it and bag it and get it to the stores still green and crisp?  chemicals, that's how.
