Baked Tilapia ============= Oven fried fish for when you think you want to pretend you're eating healthier. * 1 pound mild fish (I usually use tilapia) * 1 cup masa * 2 tsp salt * 1/2 to 1 tsp cayenne * 2 tsp paprika * 2 tsps chili powder * 2 tsps garlic powder * 1/2 to 1 tsp black pepper (to taste) * olive oil 1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 2. Mix dry ingredients in a bowl to make the coating for the fish. 3. Cut fish into slices or chunks, as your taste desires. 4. Drizzle olive oil over cut fish, and dip fish into breading. 5. Bake for 8ish minutes and finish, if you can, under the broiler.

Lettuce (Traditional; US) ====================== In a traditional American taco, lettuce serves to add extra crunch and coolness. Favor the bulkier lettuces over leafier fare such as Bibb lettuces or mesclun. * Iceberg Lettuce (shredded) * Romaine Lettuce (shredded; maintain the stalks) tags: vegetarian, vegan

bad-ass tortillas ===================== If you are making tacos, don't settle for corporate store bought tortillas. Make your own like a real person! First get a cast iron pan: ![](./pan.jpg) and then one of these bad-ass tortilla presses: ![](./tortillador.jpg) Buy your lard from a place like this: ![](./store.jpg) * 2 cups all purpose flour * 1/4 cup lard (cut into lil' pieces) * 1 teaspoon kosher salt * 2/3 tablespoon oil * 1/2 cup water (luke warm) Mix all ingredients together except oil and water. Drizzle oil over mixture and mix with hands. Add water and mix and knead again until doughy. Let chill for about an hour in plastic wrappers. Heat large cast iron skillet (or something more authentic if you've got it) over medium heat. Cut dough into about 12 pieces that are round. Use a proper tortilla press (or something more authentic if you've got it) to make 'em flat and then put on the skillet. Wait until the transparent parts turn opaque and flip em. Put cooked tortillas in a *dirty* cloth napkin to keep 'em warm. End recipe. Paz, amor, y dinero.
