Jackfruit Fajitas

I first became aware of jackfruit after ordering vegan “carnitas” tacos at one of my favorite vegan restaurants in California – Hip Vegan Cafe in Ojai. What amazed me is how a fruit had a shredded meat texture to it which makes it really useful as a substitute to meat without being the typical “fake meat” in vegetarian cooking. So what is jackfruit? It is a rather large tree grown fruit [&hellip

Sous-vide Carne Asada Street Tacos

I make a lot of vegetarian dishes during the week, mostly because anything with meat takes too long to cook from the time I get home from work. One of the ways to make using meat easier and ready when I walk through the door is to use a style of cooking called sous-vide. It is a French style of cooking a vacuum-packed meat or vegetable slowly in a water [&hellip

Korean BBQ Tacos using a SousVide Supreme

  I’m a very lucky person. There are many reasons: a wonderful family, a loving wife, and once a week the Kogi Korean BBQ taco truck makes a stop right behind the building I work. An order of three short rib tacos makes any day better. It makes life better. Now I love traditional Mexican street tacos, so much so I have written a ton of reviews on a particular [&hellip

San Antonio Puffy Tacos for #SundaySupper

  One of my favorite things about being part of the SundaySupper bloggers is how the weekly themes make me think beyond what I might normally do as a home cook.  This week was definitely one of those times as I had to consider what would I make from my Recipe Bucket List. Problem was I don’t have a Recipe Bucket List. So, I thought what to do? I’ve made [&hellip

Chorizo Tacos

These easy to make tacos are full of flavor and require very little preparation and cooking time. The Chorizo I bought came from a local ranch called Rehoboth Ranch that sells at the Coppell Farmers Market.  The ingredients are simple including only pork, salt, paprika, ground pepper, garlic, and oregano. I also used some locally made corn tortillas from Two Chefs, sold at the same market. I highly recommend their [&hellip

Chicken Tacos with Black and Corn Relish and Avocado Cream Sauce

For those who do not know, I also write a blog reviewing taco stands located at gas stations – gasstationtacos.com.  To support the blog, I also maintain the @GasStationTacos Twitter account where I get a few new followers each week. One follower I noticed had competed on American Idol Season 10 and also does a food blog.  I checked out the blog and noticed a few recipes worth trying.  This [&hellip

Baja Chicken Tacos from The Savvy Spoon Blog

I’m discovering several types of food snobs in Texas. There is the Tex-Mex snob who will tell you where to go for the best Tex-Mex, usually in some Texas town you’ve never heard of or one that is at least a 4 hour drive from wherever you are currently. Then there is the BBQ snob.  This type of Texas food snob will inform you about the best place ever somewhere [&hellip
