I don't give a flying f==k about the whole taco vs. burrito thing. Me, I make my pork carnitas with a side of home cooked beans and home made pico de gallo. Corn or flour tortillas on the side.
Best way is buy the big pork loins at Costco or Sam's then I cut them into 3#to 4# chunks and seal-a-meal/freeze. Pull one out, thaw and throw it on my pellet smoker for about an hour at like 225 degrees then put in insta-pot with some OJ, spices and some chopped onion. When done pull it like you do pulled pork and throw it under the broiler for a few to get a little crispy.
Damn, I just made myself hungry. Where's the beer, whiskey and the freezer? :)

Central Texan checking in... I'm going with with the Mexicans in my home town (who make them) call them. Tacos.

You northern white people are crazy. The first time I made breakfast tacos for my in-laws from the north (Kansas), they were skeptical because they thought I was going to serve them in crunchy corn shells. 😂

Recently my boy who's not yet three invented his own breakfast taco. I call it the Continental Breakfast Taco.
Eggs, Bacon, Pancakes & Syrup on a flour tortilla. Truth be told, its pretty fuckin' good.

What is it if it has a hard shell folded into a soft shell to catch the crunchy bits?
Is there an Alternative taco? I had to find out. Tofu? o_O

I've had soft tacos in a mex restaurant that had mex soap operas on tv, so I know it was legit. I wish the mexicans would send us those hot soap opera chicks instead of what we get crossing the border.

She gets citizenship and money and all she's got to do is stab him and blame it on the haitians. Not a bad plan.
She's probably been legal here longer than your redneck cousin fucking family.

    The best soft tacos (or whatever) I ever had were at a hole in the wall called Charlies' Tacos on BC Street outside Kadena AB, Okinawa. Other than those I like the crunchy shells.

    Taco Bell is sewage in a wrapper...except the breakfast sausage crunch wrap....but sausage, eggs and potatoes aren't exactly unique to Mexico.
    I used to feast on the tacos from Vias restaurant on Gordon Ave in olongapo.
    The hot sauce made with boonie peppers would torch your sphincter the next day.

    You forgot the salsa verde from 1:1 ratio of roasted:boiled tomatillos, 3:1 tomatillo:jalapeño, shit ton of cilantro and sea salt to taste in the blender.

    You're welcome

    The soap opera/news chicks are part of the Chosen Ones Caste in their system. They get recruited from the underling families to that caste based on looks.


    I'm fortunate enough to have found the farmer's daughter that slipped through the cracks in that system 😃

    If they're hard its a taco. If soft, theyre a burrito.

    We just went over this.

    ill be damned if im taking taco terminology class from a damn-near-Canadian Ben Affleck. Frickin yankees. :LOL:

    Best Jerked Chicken Taco in Chicago with a limp shell. Now what?

    way too much cilantro. you only over-cilantro things if you're trying to hide the taste of something else.
