Husband loves Mexican food. Absolutely loves it. And he hasn’t had it in over a week. So I thought tonight I would make some crunchy beef tacos. It should make him happy.
To save us money, I only buy corn tortias, and make flour ones when needed. Corn tortias are far from crunchy, but when I was at the restaurant supply store way back in September, I picked up this crazy pair of tongs that hold a tortia in the shape of a taco for frying. Genius!
I still have not used it.
Tonight, I’m gonna give it a go. I have a feeling it will take a bigger pot, and a lot more oil than I really want to use, but fried tacos are pretty amazing, so I have no reason to think that these wouldn’t be. It will probably also get a bit smokey/fry-oil smelling in my kitchen, but it’s been beautiful out and I will just open the windows.
I’ll let you know how it goes. Heck, maybe I’ll even pull out the camera and take photos. You’d like that, huh.
