Tonight I made tacos – I’ve been craving tacos for a while, so I dragged my sister over to have tacos with Mom and I.

Yummy yummy pork tacos with onions, sour cream, refried beans, lettuce, cheese, and homemade guacamole and homemade salsa!

All of this makes about 8 or 9 tacos.

I love tacos!


Salsa Ingredients:
a squeeze of fresh lime juice
1 tomato, diced
1/4 large sweet onion, diced
1 large clove garlic, minced
pinch of kosher salt
a sprinkling of parsley or cilantro (Mom doesn’t like cilantro.)

Do all the dicing and mincing, then combine in a small bowl. Squeeze a little fresh lime juice, add a pinch of salt, sprinkle with parsley (or cilantro), and mix.


Guacamole Ingredients:
1 ripe avocado
a pinch of kosher salt
a squeeze of fresh lime juice
sprinkling of minced onion (the dried kind)
sprinkling of parsley (or cilantro)

Remove avocado insides, place in a bowl. Mash together with some minced onion, parsley (I prefer it here over cilantro, myself), the salt, and lime juice. It should be a little chunky still, I just used a fork lol.
Place in fridge with avocado pit on top until ready to use. Doesn’t keep well. Corn chips are handy.


Pork Tacos Ingredients:
4 pork chops, cubed into bite-sized pieces
1/4 large sweet onion, sliced
juice from 1/2 lime
kosher salt
garlic powder
lemon pepper
olive oil

Heat the skillet/pan with some oil in it, just enough to provide a little lube. Add the onions and pork to it.
Sprinkle once across the pan a pinch of kosher salt, lemon pepper, and the cumin.
Sprinkle twice across the pan paprika, parsley, and garlic powder.
Squeeze in the lime juice, and cook until done. It is utterly delicious!
