Swiss Chard =========== This is actually a Rick Bayless recipe from his cookbook _Mexican Everyday_, but we've used it a fair amount on those days we feel like not eating meat but still want to have tacos. __Ingredients__ * 1 bunch swiss or rainbow chard. Could also do spinach I guess. Probably not good with kale. * 1 onion sliced thin * 1/2 cup of chicken or vegetable broth Slice up the chard into small slices. In a large skillet, heat the oil on medium-high. Cook the onions until soft, plus some garlic and red pepper flakes if you want. Put the chard in the skillet, add the broth. Cover the pan and reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until the greens are wilted and almost tender (about 5 minutes). Uncover, bring heat back to medium high and cook until almost dry. Salt as necessary. Enjoy. tags: vegetarian

Corn Salad ========== * 2 Ears of corn * 1 Lime, juiced * Small handful of Cilantro, chopped * A few green onions, chopped * Garlic salt, or Garlic AND salt. I use Trader Joe's Garlic Salt in the grinder usually. Cut the corn off of the cob, and in a mixing bowl mix together corn, lime juice, chopped cilantro and garlic salt. You can tweak any of this stuff as desired. --- This is my first Github commit. I'm glad it's taco related. tags: vegetarian, vegan

Sriracha Salt ============= I actually received this as a gift, but I found a recipe to make your own. __Ingredients__ * 1 cup Salt * 10 tsp. Sriracha Mix the two ingredients together in a bowl. Spread it out on a baking sheet lined with foil or parchment paper. Put in a 200-degree oven, then turn the oven off and let it sit overnight inside. It will clump, but place in ziplock bag and attack it with a rolling pin. Tada! The effect on most food is as awesome as you'd expect but it is especially amazing with eggs. Add it to your breakfast tacos. 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.
