onion ======== An onion is typically cut up and then tossed into a skillet or something else to heat it. Olive oil is nice. They can be grilled or caramelized as well.

Veggies for Fish Tacos ====================== Fish tacos are a special breed, requiring different vegetable options. __Assemble your veg from the following options:__ * Cabbage, purple, shredded * Cabbage, other shades, shredded * Radishes, sliced into thin slices * Red peppers, diced * Cherry tomatoes, sliced (if you're a heathen) * Cilantro, if it doesn't taste like soap to you And one requirement: * Limes, sliced for juicing over tacos. Place out your selections and assemble into your taco. Then squeeze a lime over the top. tags: vegetarian, vegan

Simple Salsa Verde ================== I got this base recipe from a vegan friend. If you can't find one of these peppers, swap in another one! * 6 Average-sized tomatillos * 1 Poblano pepper * 1 Serrano pepper * 1 Jalapeno pepper * 1 Sweet red pepper * Juice of 1 or 2 fresh-squeezed limes (to taste) * Pinch or two kosher salt (to taste) You're in charge of the heat here. For a milder salsa, remove all the ribs and seeds inside the peppers. For medium, leave in a few ribs, and for hot, go nuts. Rough chop the peppers and tomatillos, then throw into a blender or food processor with salt and lime juice. Pulse to desired consistency. As with most salsas, this will taste better if you let it sit in the fridge for a few hours before eating. It's great on chips or drizzled over steak or pork tacos. tags: vegetarian, vegan

Basic Dry Rub ================= This is a great, versatile recipe to use as a taco seasoning or as a dry rub for the protein of your choice. Equally at home in the skillet, oven, stovetop, or smoker. * 2 Tbs Cumin * 2 Tbs Chili Powder * 1 Tbs Salt * 1 Tbs Garlic Powder * 2 tsp Black Pepper * 1 tsp Chipotle Powder Stir to combine and apply liberally. 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.
