Smoked Pork Tacos With Salsa Roja

Mexican street food encompasses a wide variety of items that local vendors may be preparing in the open marketplaces found in many communities. Offerings range from a lengthy list of classic favorites from gorditas, quesadillas & tamales to the ever hardworking taco just to name a few. The traditional taco is actually a bit different than what we consider an average one to consist. They are crafted from fresh, homemade corn tortillas, then filled with seasoned meats, salsa & a few additional toppings. Mexican street tacos are truly delicious & something to celebrate in itself. Today’s tutorial merges my love of House Barbecue with the authenticity of this wonderful cuisine. Learn how to make them in your own home & plan to serve them for tailgating festivities, fall parties & even just a weeknight supper

 How To Use A Tortilla Press

 A tortilla press is a vital piece of equipment necessary in order to make a batch of authentic corn tortillas. Choose a device with an enamel coating & one made from cast iron or wood for the best results. For more information, details & comprehensive visuals that guide you through each step of the process on how to prepare corn tortillas from scratch, look to tutorials that explain masa harina, masa & the tortilla press.

It is necessary to use thick plastic to prevent sticking & to give a 1/4 turn or two in order to create an even thickness. Once the tortillas have been pressed, stacking them between parchment paper makes them easier to handle once it’s time for cooking. 

Cut a square from a heavy duty zip-top freezer bag leaving one side folded & attached. Position the tortilla press on a sturdy surface, open the top & place the plastic over the base. Lift the plastic & place one piece of portioned dough in the center, then cover again. Press the maker closed, then lift & give the dough a 1/4 turn. Press again, then give it another 1/4 turn creating a bout a 4 1/4-inch even circle. Carefully peel away the top piece of plastic & invert the corn tortilla onto a parchment paper-lined quarter sheet pan.
