Rico's Tacos
march 18, 2014

Another one from The Commonsense Kitchen, p 327. How can anyone resist a meal with a name as fun to say as "Rico's Tacos?" It rhymes. And rings of a party with warm sea air  where fairy lights hover over tables lit by flickering colored votives. The 1970's version of these candles, that I remember from my toddler-hood on the island paradise of Aruba. 

--- After dinner follow up:

Tasty! Easy to make! Lot's of options for toppings like lettuce, avocado, crème fraiche, salsa and onion. My kids love to build their own tacos and so do I.

I tried Hudgen's tortilla heating method: heat one over the gas flame with tongs, flip, put another on top, flip and heat the new one, put another on top, flip again. And so on, keeping the whole stack warm as you go. It works pretty well, but I'm not sure I prefer it to my usual: heat one tortilla at a time over the gas, then add each to a stack wrapped in a damp, warm towel.
