There's something about a good taco - hard shell, or soft; Street cart, sit-down or home; chicken, steak, ground whatever or veggies; corn or flour; authentic or - they have a great appeal. An appeal so large that Erik Friberg has probably the most famous tweet in Seattle Sounders history. It was one word - tacos.
How do you build your taco? What do you enjoy as sides?
Currently our family enjoys some re-fried beans with some cheese on the side, none of the pickled stuff. We do soft flour tortillas, a little shredded cheese (jack and cheddar) with seasoned ground turkey and sour cream.
No, that isn't an authentic taco. It isn't even close. It's probably more burrito than taco. Do we care? No. It's how we do it. Our way, on our stove, and when we go out the only tacos we'd get are the from a street vendor. I'm a fan of mole enchiladas while my wife likes fajitas.
This is an example of America's relationship to soccer. We do things just a touch different, with adaptations on the authentic that only make sense to us. My goodness do we love authentic tacos from a street vendor, but at home we do them this way, uniquely ours.
Here's you're weekly open thread. What do you enjoy in an inauthentic manner?
