  • Red onion, diced
  • Sour cream (or crema)
  • 1 small tomato diced

  • Serve on corn tortillas with diced tomato, fresh cilantro and limes, sour cream (or crema) and cotija cheese


1. Use a mixture of ground pork and ground beef for added flavor and texture.
2. Add in diced onions, bell peppers, and jalapenos for extra heat and crunch.
3. Top with fresh cilantro, diced avocado, and a squeeze of lime for added brightness.
4. Serve on warm corn tortillas for a truly authentic taste.
5. Don't forget the salsa, hot sauce, and sour cream for added toppings.
