Cocina Mexicana (Mexican Kitchen) by June Dutton TX716 .M4 D88 1969
I chose this recipe because it looked easy and I’m not a good cook. It turned out I was right.
This is a simple dish that is pretty flexible. You line up the ingredients and put them in whatever order looks good to you. The steak pieces work best in small, thin portions. I used a think sliced sirloin steak, which cooked quickly and cut easily with a steak knife. Warming up the tortillas is important to give them a little crunch and it makes them firm and easier to hold. I tore them into quarters and placed the ingredients on top and then used another quarter as a sandwhich top, so it would be less messy to eat. It turned out to be just as messy, but that’s okay.
For a really simple dish, these were very tasty. Good for a party or by yourself.
