Let’s talk tacos

March 17, 2014


… because Lloyd does it wrong.

My method : Start with hot taco shells, baked in the oven for five minutes.
Add cheese (to melt to bottom).
Add meat.
Then lettuce, olives, tomatoes then sour cream.

Lloyd’s wrong method:
Smear hot taco shell with sour cream on the sides.
Lettuce on the bottom, then olives, then cheese then meat on top to melt the cheese. His rationale? “You want the heat to melt the cheese.”

    My method is: meat, then cheese, then tomatoes, then lettuce. The meat melts the cheese, and the tomatoes buffer the heat for the lettuce. Warm tomatoes are ok, but warm lettuce is not.

    Lauren’s is prettier. Sorry, Lloyd.

    I use Tostitos Scoops & fill with meat and top with lettuce. Pop it in my mouth. Next one.

    And I agree with Deborah….Lauren’s taco is a work of art!

    I do what Brad does. We must be related.

    Don’t forget the hot taco sauce and tabasco on top of the meat! 🙂

    I actually don’t use taco shells anymore. I came to the conclusion that using crushed tortilla chips and making a taco salad was more cost effective. But I probably eat more so that throws out any savings.
