Ground deer meat, salt, black pepper, loads of chile powder, cumin, garlic, chopped-up fresh jalapenos, oregano, diced tomato, lime juice. Sautee until done. Heat up corn tortilla, put in filling, top with pico de gallo and jack/sharp cheddar and lettuce. I can eat a half-dozen of them.

The quick weeknight meal version goes like this...It's weak I know.









I prefer the soft shells.



Lately though, my wife and kids have been throwing the ground meat, a reduced sodium taco seasoning packet, a can of black beans and a tub of fresh salsa into the crock pot. It's surprisingly good.

Holy fark am I hungry for taco's after googling all those pictures.

Soft shell, hard shell, homemade corn torts..........I'm so much about the wrapper, ok, I am, just a little. I prefer a warm corn tort! As far as the fillin goes, as long as it's homemade, it's good stuff.
One thing I will say...........I like LOTS of heat in my tacos!

I have a few ways I make them with pulled pork, chuck or brisket that are not really "authentic" but satisfy a craving at the time. But for the family here though, taco night is simply...

Ground beef (sirloin roast seems to please everyone the most) seasoned liberally (gasp) with this...




Served with your choice of (each in it's own bowl/container)...







Sauce for the 17 and 13 year old boys...



My preferred taco night sauce (applied very liberally)...



Flour tortillas (taco or fajita size) and yellow corn crunchy tortilla shells.

Since the day a few years ago when one of the boys complained about not wanting tacos, I melted him a bowl of Velveeta to dip taco shells into so he could have nachos instead. The wife and both of the boys drizzled the melted velveeta over their tacos and have insisted that melted velveeta now be a regular thing. Sometimes I even use it, but for the most part I still like them the way I have always had them (everything except the velveeta). I was raised with this same taco night arrangement, so it is homestyle food to me, in a way.

Many years ago the wife and I made "double decker" tacos, with flour shell on the outside, layered with bean, then crunchy taco inside. She ALWAYS makes hers that way until this day. I prefer just crunchy, because if I eat one of those double decker ones, I get full after one taco mostly, and I have a thing (not sure what it is) that requires me to eat several crunchy tacos in one sitting. I have no idea what that is about, but I have been that way since I was a kid. I love this taco night actually, as blase as it may appear.

I like using pulled beef in mine, seasoned with a chili powder blend. Then corn tortillas individually deep fried till crispy, then topped with fresh iceberg lettuce and colby jack. Homemade salsa is a must!

That's it. I'm running to Panchos. They are jsut across the street and have some Carnitas tacos that Moose has made me crave now. They use thin soft white corn tortillas (doubled) and some guac, but fark...gotta get one of those now I'm afraid.

Or I could keep drinking.

Wine is gone.

What's next?

Fark, now I'm taking this thread off track.

Lately I've gone with pulled pork cooked down with onions, peppers and some stock for moisture. Soft corn tortillas topped with a spicy chipotle slaw and fresh salsa (when the wife is willing). I'd eat a mess of those crispy beef tacos though. Nice.

My wife has been making bitters of late. I bet we have some that would go good with those tacos that Biggie might like.
