What’s your favorite type of cuisine? I know mine is Mexican food; I love the spices and variety of flavors you get in any Mexican dish. One thing I miss about living in Southern California is the amazing Mexican food; my trips back to the Golden State are not complete without at least a couple of meals at a Mexican restaurant. Whether it’s the place owned by a family friend, a hole-in-the-wall place in Pasadena, or a favorite chain-restaurant, my family never misses an opportunity to get authentic Mexican food when visiting the rest of our family in Los Angeles.
But why wait to go to (and pay for) a restaurant? We make our own Mexican food at home all the time. Sure, it isn’t quite authentic, but it’s still amazing to make your own guacamole, tacos, fajitas, or whatever you want! If you’re looking for a soft tacos recipe to make in your own home, try Jenny’s recipe for Restaurant-style Carne Asada Soft Tacos on Picky Palate. Jenny made them for Cinco de Mayo, but these fresh looking tacos are great all summer long.
Once you try Jenny's tacos, get creative (perhaps your own spin on steak tacos or fajitas?) and enter your dish in this week's Grill-lympics. All week we're asking readers to share their steaks and ribs with us; yours could put you in the running to win an assortment of premium steaks courtesy of Allen Brothers Steaks.
