Mexican Tacos Recipe

2012/07/30 by Varga László

Ingredients (2-4 servings):

For pico de gallo (salsa mexicana, salsa fresca)

  • 3-4  medium tomatoes
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 green chili pepper (preferably the hotter kind like jalapeno)
  • 1 bunch of cilantro leaves (since I didn’t have them I replaced them with parsley)
  • about half of a lime’s juice

  The rest of the fillings:

  • a few roast leftover slices
  • 200 g surimi sticks
  • a green pepper
  • a small chili pepper
  • 2-3 garlic cloves
  • 150 g sour cream
  • 150 g Mexican tomato salsa sauce
  • a few teaspoons of  sweet and hot paprika according to your tastes
  • a medium lettuce
  • a few slices of mexican cheese (mexican cheddar, etc) – optional

 

Preparation method:

   Pico de gallo:

  1. Chop coarsely the cilantro or parsley leaves. Slice thinly the chili pepper.
  2. Dice into smaller cubes the tomatoes and onion.
  3. Mix the salsa ingredients, season with lime juice, salt and pepper to taste.

 The rest of the fillings:

  1. Slice into shreds the remaining roast  leftovers,  I had some of the previous Sauerbraten veal roast.
  2. Fry slightly with a bit of olive oil the roast shreds, the green pepper slices, chopped garlic and some chili pepper.
  3. Slice the surimi sticks into 1 cm pieces, then fry them slightly with a drip of olive oil.
  4. In a small bowl mix together the sour cream with some paprika, mix sweet and hot according to your taste ;).
  5. Heat a tablespoon of oil in the frying pan and fry 1-2 minute on only one side each tortilla.
  6. Lay on the still hot tortilla shreds of lettuce leaves.
  7. Then lay either some roast shreds either surimi slices. You can use other fish or seafood, but this is what I had at hand.
  8. Lay some tomato/salsa sauce, sour cream-paprika mix, fried peppers, fried garlic, fried garlic, cheese and plentiful of pico de gallo.
  9. Fold them carefully into halve. Serve on each large plate one roast – one surimi taco leaning on each other.

    Your recipes look really yummy. But since I’m not really an expert when it comes to cooking, I’ll just try this one. 🙂

    This sounds interesting. I’ve heard of using coke for cooking ham, but not root beer for pork. I’ve used sweet fruits like plums in the slow cooker, too, although usually with a beef roast.

    Never heard of making tacos using some of these ingredients but sounds interesting to make and looks healthy to eat
