Monday I wrote that the first taco most of us had was probably pretty simple, or lame, more like it.
It was hamburger, probably seasoned with some unknown spices from a packet, and while that first taco probably wasn’t bad, it probably wasn’t exactly delicious by today’s standards.
I always say use the best ingredients you can afford, right? Apply that same lesson to the taco, and you will get spectacular results.
Buy a big steak, one that would be good on the grill. Cut it into cubes, season it aggressively with chili powder, a little cumin, black pepper and maybe a few pinches of oregano. Now cut up a few bell peppers and add them to the mix.
Get your grill going blazing hot and cook the beef cubes and peppers quickly, making sure they get a good sear. Fill a soft taco with the mixture, add a little good-melting cheese and a dollop of Crème fraiche, or sour cream. Make sure to serve these tacos immediately.
