Chopped Pork ============= This is a quick and easy way to prep and cook your pork for tacos. You need: * pork chops, boneless, don't go too crazy thick, around 1-2" tops. * kitchen scissors Do you see where this is going? Cut up your chops unevenly with the scissors. Go for an average of chopped bits around 1" in size or so, but variation is good, especially little bits. Those little bits are going to turn into crispy bits of goodness. When you.. Toss all this into a high-heat pan (cast iron, if you've got it) and fry it up so that it chars up real nice. The little bits will turn into little charred chunks--this is a feature, not a bug. Prior to the pan-tossing, you should spice up your pork with a good rub or marinade. If you're looking, I recommend the [sriracha marinade](/seasonings/sriracha_marinade.md).

Corn Salad ========== * 2 Ears of corn * 1 Lime, juiced * Small handful of Cilantro, chopped * A few green onions, chopped * Garlic salt, or Garlic AND salt. I use Trader Joe's Garlic Salt in the grinder usually. Cut the corn off of the cob, and in a mixing bowl mix together corn, lime juice, chopped cilantro and garlic salt. You can tweak any of this stuff as desired. --- This is my first Github commit. I'm glad it's taco related. tags: vegetarian, vegan

bad-ass tortillas ===================== If you are making tacos, don't settle for corporate store bought tortillas. Make your own like a real person! First get a cast iron pan: ![](./pan.jpg) and then one of these bad-ass tortilla presses: ![](./tortillador.jpg) Buy your lard from a place like this: ![](./store.jpg) * 2 cups all purpose flour * 1/4 cup lard (cut into lil' pieces) * 1 teaspoon kosher salt * 2/3 tablespoon oil * 1/2 cup water (luke warm) Mix all ingredients together except oil and water. Drizzle oil over mixture and mix with hands. Add water and mix and knead again until doughy. Let chill for about an hour in plastic wrappers. Heat large cast iron skillet (or something more authentic if you've got it) over medium heat. Cut dough into about 12 pieces that are round. Use a proper tortilla press (or something more authentic if you've got it) to make 'em flat and then put on the skillet. Wait until the transparent parts turn opaque and flip em. Put cooked tortillas in a *dirty* cloth napkin to keep 'em warm. End recipe. Paz, amor, y dinero.
