Found I don't crave tacos for breakfast
on August 4, 2012
I like tacos, and can cook a lot of southwest style, thanks to almost 50 years married to an Arizona girl. But after the novelty wore off, I found that I rarely want them early in the day. So here's what I think, by topic.
* How to cook a taco: good for someone who is starting, okay on flour vs. corn, seemed to favor hard over soft. Nice competent presentation if you need it. Did not really address in depth sizes and ways to fold. A little burrito tech is useful if you cook for people who aren't experienced at eating tacos.
* Things to put in a breakfast taco: good, useful to a degree, in a few cases "odd" rather than "inspired."
* Length: okay if you view it as introductory material.
* Discussion of spicing: elementary, not enough on what spices, particularly HOT spices, do what, go with what, leave an aftertaste when used with eggs, etc. Balancing the spices is the art, this was at the fast food level of subtlety, not the art of making simple ingredients exciting through careful spicing.
It's an introduction, follow the steps and you will make decent food at a very modest price in most cases.
