Carne Asada Tacos

You waited the however many hours for the carne asada to cook in the slow cooker. Now what?

Carne asada tacos of course!

I took all the fancy stuff out of them. No sour cream (much to Bryan’s dismay), no guacamole, no pico de gallo, no pickled jalapenos, no tomatillo sauce, no salsa, no caramelized onions or bell peppers, no pineapple slaw, or whatever the latest gourmet craze. Just pure and simple foods in their natural form.

And it was amazing.

2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
12 flour tortilla


Make tacos. Simple right?

Makes 12 tacos.

This is the best taco I have ever made. I’m serious. It was so good. Why haven’t I made tacos like this yet? Ground beef, move over. It’s carne asada from now on.

Bryan hated the fact that it was shredded meat. But whatever.

It was so flavorful. Everything was perfect. Also helps that when I warm the tortilla in the microwave, I put the cheese on it so it’s slightly melted. I swear, deep down inside, I’m a little fat girl. Who does that? Who thinks, hey let me melt this cheese so the tacos have that perfect melted cheese on it to make these even more amazing. I do. The little fat girl inside of me that wants to eat everything but can’t because she’s diabetic and will die does. But it makes all the difference.

Melted cheese in tacos makes it perfect. So you have to melt it when heating up the tortillas. Then stack all the veggies on one side and the meat on the other and fold in half

No I know what you’re thinking, Michelle, the cheese isn’t melted in the picture. That’s because I thought of it on my third taco. See, it takes a while for diabetic skinny Michelle to listen to fat Michelle. It’s because fat Michelle is always begging for a donut or something and complaining about how skinny diabetic Michelle needs some meat on her bones. So skinny diabetic Michelle has learned how to ignore fat Michelle. It’s a huge ordeal.

But now you know how to make the perfect taco.
