Costco is a dangerous place to go some days.
You know how you’ll wander around, and suddenly you sample something and it just has to come home with you?
And you didn’t need it 30 seconds earlier
You’re making laps around the aisle and hoping the sample lady doesn’t realize this is the 4th time you’ve been there.
And then you have warm, fresh, amazing tortillas.
I’m kinda having a moment like this right now
Warm tortillas WHENEVER I WANT. It’s bad.
I needed to make some meals with them so at least my husband would help me eat them up.
Because like all things from Costco it came in a huge pack. And if I’m getting fat I’m at least not doing it alone.
I had some pork in the freezer that I had thought I’d make pulled pork with. Seeing the giant pack of tortillas gave me a different idea though.
Canitas Street tacos!
A while ago, we started seeing signs at Taco Time (we drive by one to get the husband to his vanpool) for “street tacos”
We finally realized they meant taco truck style tacos, and not just weird dirty food
This has lead to my husband becoming a big fan of saying the phrase “street tacos”
When I told him I was making carnitas for dinner he said “street tacos?!”
Yes baby, street tacos.
I cooked the pork in the crockpot with some chicken broth and spices. (Trues story: looking for recipes I discovered that traditionally carnitas are made by braising the meat in lard. I put in a tablespoon of butter with the chicken broth and called it good instead)
Right before dinner I shredded it and put it on the grill to give it crispy edges
Heaven my friends, heaven.
What’s your favorite Mexican food? I love chicken tacos from taquerias and taco trucks, and in restaurants I seriously love the rice and beans.
(I think because the beans are made with lardddddd)
