this. low fat sour cream usually has some kind of starch added to thicken it. gives it a weird, almost gritty texture.

What tortilla press should I get? I've been smoothing my tortillas with a pan and it's getting old.

The ones made of wood are likely the best although they usually look clunky and crude

Where to begin with this...

that's jar salsa, not fresh.

Home made seasoning? Really so they went out and harvested the sea salt, peppercorns, and various chili's etc? I don't think so.That's just a pretentious way of saying "my seasoning blend".

That cheese is from a bag. Home-grated stuff tends to clump together because it isn't covered in a starch powder.

Why the fuck would you use low fat sour cream? Either use real stuff, or greek yogurt.

>>7187271
"Shredding it by hand" is using a grater captain cuisine.
>>
>>7187466
Well then doesn't everyone grate it by hand? Who the fuck uses the grater disc on their food processor for cheese?
>>
>homemade seasoning
protip: just because you mixed cumin and chili powder in your kitchen doesn't mean it's homemade
>>
>>7187413

>your artisan microbrewer's collective

I only drink spirits baby srry ... I also enjoy pulque when its real, blanco, and ready for consumption.
>>
>>7187468
You're getting confused, nobody uses that goofy grater disk.

(I'm speaking for Americans here) Most people buy their cheese pre-shredded/grated, in bags. It makes no fucking sense, but thats the way it is. When people cook with that stuff, they also don't realize it is covered in flour or corn starch to prevent clumping. the unforeseen side effect is that it acts as a hidden thickener.

Its more economical to buy a block and just shave some off as you need it.

does anyone else fucking hate corn tortillas?

Corn masa is what is needed for people away from from the americas, store bought corn tortillas can easily be horrendous make some at home instead.

Are you an 16 year old women?

Just you.

>>7187262
Why do people use such tiny tortillas? I don't get it. Just give me three large tacos instead of six small ones.
>>
>>7187262
I like onions, but my biggest problem is that often they load up too much and outside of purple onions, I'm not crazy about raw onions.

Finding good tortillas is honestly the hardest part. Everyone and their mother makes "the best tortillas you've ever had!", but the thickness and texture generally ends up resembling a chapati, which overwhelms the entire thing.

>an 16 year old women
ok ignoring that english isn't your first language: do you consider 16 year olds adults? also, do 16 year olds regularly drink neat spirits where you live?

...are those things related?
>>
>>7187786
Make them yourself, the thick ones are made using a press, the thin ones are hand or machine rolled

With "experts" recommending warming tortillas in a microwave a standard must be held somehow.
>>
>>7188265
what is the problem with heating them like that....wrap em in a damp towl and they just steam

where is the problem?

>16 year olds regularly drink neat spirits where you live?

Not dude you're responding to, but when I first had alcohol, the volume and taste of beer was unappealing and I much preferred rum or whiskey. It was only during college that I got into beer.

For whatever reason, I mostly lost my taste for beer after college. I'll occasionally have one or two if I'm going to some after-work gathering at a restaurant, but I'm mostly into straight liquor. Occasionally a Bloody Mary or Screwdriver with Saturday breakfast or if just relaxing outside.

Neat spirits were our only choice of alcohol for me and my chums when we were underage drinking. Of course it's a regular thing.

>>7186748
Looks tasty.

Like >>7187457 said, probably a little excessive on the chopping, woulda stopped after the first rotation.

Fukin cheeky m8

If being a taco snob means I get to enjoy all varieties of taco for better or worse then fuck it. I'm a snob.

That's how finely taquerias chop their meat. It's easier to control how much meat goes on each taco that way, and so makes each steak last longer.

Also, is that webm Rick Bayless? That man is whatever the Mexican equivalent of a weeaboo is. A "wexican?"
>>
>>7187413
>Tacos are not eaten in Restaurants
I guess somebody forgot to tell every taqueria in Mexico about that. I bet they're going to feel quite silly for doing it wrong.
>>
>>7188868
When Mexicans say "restaurant" they mean something different than what they mean when they say "taqueria", and the best tacos are always at taquerias.

It's like american burger joints, you can get a burger at a lot of restaurants, but it's something you order if you're in a place that really sucks and that's something you're pretty sure they can't fuck up. You don't order it because you craved a great burger. And you don't go to a full service restaurant in Mexico because you're craving a great taco.
>>
>>7188864
Oh I imagine so. Since its grilled meat rather than ground it'd be chopped really finely.

I just think its redundant to do that for a backyard grill kinda deal but to each their own. I'd probably do it that way myself if I ever get around to making carne asada or whatever.
