Taco Tuesday: A Seat Into Our Kitchen

1 comment

  Taco Tuesday: It used to be a religious date in our diaries that we were always available for. Sometimes there is just less time and our schedules are all out of balance, until someone sets a date that can no longer be rescheduled and everyone is summoned by that food-related calling. It's be there or be hungry! 
It's like setting a date for a wedding, no excuse is great enough you simply have to be there.  I would compare it to a birthday but count on me to be thinking of a million reasons why my bed sounds more of a fitting option than going out... woops...ahhh sorry friends.

The Recipe -  Guacamole 
Tomato's (Firm)
Red Onion
Olive Oil
Sea Salt 

by - Welly 


How To? Using a chef's knife finely cut your onion, tomato's and parsley into small pieces, the smaller, the better. 
We don't want no lumpy bits all in our precious guac. Cut your avocado in half (firm avo's only) and scoop into a large bowl. 


What are the benefits to avocado you ask? 

It's very good for your skin, the Omega-9 help reduce redness
The Antioxidants in it help repair the skin, irritation and damaged skin cells
They contain more potassium than Banana's which helps maintain healthy blood pressure levels
The levels of healthy fats within Avocado's aids in increasing the value of nutrients and antioxidants you absorb in plant based foods.
It's all good eating nutritious foods but it's even better when you can yield more benefits from it, so add a avocado to the weekly shop!


How To? Once scooped into the bowl you then want to add the rest of your ingredients to the mix, lightly dressing it with olive oil, salt and lime juice. 
Welly Says: Don't skimp on the lime or salt as it cuts through the fat of the meat. Make sure you deseed the tomatoes otherwise it will be watery!

- Thanks Welly


Hangry by now? Stare into each others souls questioning yourself, your life and their life...wondering if the food will ever be ready?! This is why you buy the chips and dips to keep you going....but no one bought the chips or dips so you can continue to question life after this.....


Pulled Pork: Made by Peju Obasa.  She's keeping this recipe a secret, I guess she's opening her restaurant soon...we pray *throws hands up* 
Until then her tip on cooking Pulled Pork is to cook on low heat for as along as possible, not only does it intensify the 'flavour fav' in her words it will makes it easier to shred. - thank you Pegs!


Mix is well, get that fork and really churn that goodness together. No half-hearted business, this is not just any food this is food made with love.


The Soft Taco's are from Marks & Spencer's each pack contains 8 tacos, you can heat them in them in the microwave or the oven for 2mins max..  


The Assembly is everything!, it matters so much. There can only be one winner and it wasn't me, this was Peju's :( 
For the perfect assembly grab your taco shell, layer it with cheese and when you do put it into the microwave/oven so it melts into it nicely.
Then add your sweet peppers so the juices collapse into z'bread, 
Next you want to get real and serious by topping it with your pulled pork sent from heaven 
The Guac' attack! Don't be shy or modest there is more than enough to go round! Lastly top it off with sour cream and parsley because your fancy and you need it to look boujee for picture sake.  - You is  welcome.
