taco gala

Two weekends ago, I was lucky enough to participate in a Mexican-US birthday party for a director of the school I teach at. Mexican aspects: appetizer, pork rinds. main course, tacos. beer, Corona. USA aspects: there was an unlimited supply of all food & drink. said director is from Ohio.  

If you don't recognize the tacos you see above - it's because they're authentic. Right down to the cilantro, corn tortillas & radishes...these babies are Mexy born. I think it's hilarious that the most common veggie that Mexicans eat is radish...of course...even their produce is spicy. Geeeeez.

Ever seen tacos al pastor? They cook the meat just like the giant skewers of gyro meat you see at dingy Greek restaurants. Turn up the flame for 10 seconds, cut that spicy pork meat, add a little chunk of sweet piña, and you've got a taquito. Delicioso.   
Here's a little preview of some of the beautiful chicks I get to hang out with - waiting patiently for our turn at the taco station.  :D
