Little meats

We crave tacos at least once a week! But we had just gotten home from Portland and wanted to eat in so we gave it a shot ourselves. It turned out delicious!
Our favorite are the tacos carnitas (which means little meats)

Tacos Carnitas:

small tortillas
1 can of black beans
pecorino cheese; grated
carne asada (we got it from Trader Joe's but you can also buy a flank steak and marinade/rub it in spices)
lime wedges

1   dice the meat into bit size pieces and cook in a skillet until brown
2   cook a can of black beans over the stove, once done rinse them and mash them with some salt and pepper
3   put the tortillas in the oven for a few minutes to warm them and crisp the edges a little
4   pile the cheese, little meats, and beans on top of the tortilla and sprinkle with fresh cilantro and some fresh squeezed lime juice

I it sounds simple but it tastes divine!

The place we love going to has the best salsa, it's super simple but amazing. This is our version

Fresh Salsa:
5 roma tomatoes; diced
2 cloves garlic; minced
1 jalapeno; diced small
1/3 red onion; diced
generous amount of cilantro; diced
1/2 lime; juiced
a few pinches of salt and pepper

mix them all together and serve with tortilla chips and/or add to your tacos

And of course we washed them down with mexican cokes :)
