I grew up on burritos and tacos. We used to go to this place called Pancho Villa's in Astoria NY.

They're long gone but I still need my fix.....

We'll start with a couple of different fillings..

Step 1: Chicken W/ Pepper and Onion

This is easy.

strips of chicken breast, bell pepper, and onions.

Sprinkle some Teriyaki sauce on it and your good.

I also add Lime Ponzu.

Stir fry in Olive oil and you're done....

Step 2: Steak and Onions

I love caramelized onions and steak. A great marinade can be made from my Kalbi instructable here

or the sambal recipe here

But if I'm in a hurry I just sprinkle a little Mirin and Lemon Ponzu on the meat as its cooking.

Add a few sauted mushrooms for good measure... Works great as a Philly cheese steak too.

Step 3: Over the Top Lamb

Lamb shanks. Great in a stew and leftovers are better in a taco...

Simple to make too just brown a couple of shanks in a dutch oven and then remove them from the pot.

Add the classic French Mirepoix, onions-celery-carrots, or the Italian soffritto, or Spanish sofrito, if you prefer.

Add a small pat of butter to help it along. After a couple of minutes add a cup of red wine and 2 cups of tomato sauce.

Return the shanks to the pot and add enough water to cover them. Sometimes I add more wine to cover them....

In 2-3 hours you should be able to pull the meat away from the bones easily.

Step 4: The Payoff

Now that you have your fillings get some taco shells, taco bowls, flour or corn tortillas or just a soup bowl....

Make some pickled red onions. Just put some sliced red onions in a jar with half water and half apple cider vinegar. In a day it will turn the onions bright red. In a week they're even better.

I make Pickled Jalapenos too but lately I have just been buying them in the store since I go through 6-8 jars a year....

Another great addition is roasted broccoli. Just wash your broccoli then sprinkle on some lemon juice and parmesan cheese then you roast in on a sheet tray for 10 minutes at 450.

Sautéed Spinach in garlic and Olive oil is nice and easy too.

Check out my corn salsa ible too.

Add a little lettuce, pico de gallo, salsa verde, sour cream, raw onions, or whatever you like....

Served best with milk or alcohol to cut the heat....

I prefer a hard raspberry / apple cider. Sour Cherry cider should be in season soon too. but then again just a Corona will make me happy......
