I am sure you have heard the quote “Love is the universal language”. Well, I was able to live that first hand. When I was about 8 years old a family moved into our neighborhood from Mexico. Now, growing up in a predominately white community I was absolutely enchanted with this family. I did not know Spanish, and they did not know English, but our gestures, charades, smiles, laughs, and overall kindness was the language we spoke for a while. My mom quickly became one of this single mother’s best friends, and I with her daughter. I was exposed to a new culture, new food, new ways of doing things, new ways of thinking, and I loved it! It was so incredible to me that I could feel so much love from people that did not even speak my native tongue, and yet I knew they really did care about me, they were so genuine.
This family introduced me to it all. I had my first “jalapeño challenge”, ate green salsa and eggs, made home made tortillas, had fruit for “dessert”, and ate my first “Street Tacos”. I became a lover of steak and especially Carne Asada very quickly! This is something that has stuck with me ever since – it is such a treat when I get to eat Carne Asada. Its one of my favorites!
I love street tacos so much, and I don’t think I ever eat them the same way twice. I feel like there HAS to be a few ingredients – red onion, cilantro, and lime is a MUST! I also love them with pico de gallo, radish, avocado, queso fresco, lettuce, but really you can put pretty much anything you like on them!
Any way you have them they are sure to get compliments all around!
So go ahead and try a street taco today, better yet, make your own!
See the Happy!
