Taco time!

This Saturday Matli didn't feel like cooking something advanced, and I (as always) didn't feel like cooking at all. But I could go to the store and buy whatever we could need, so all we had to do was to come up with a good idea... and so I thought of tacos! That's probably the first mexican food we made, many years ago, and to be honest - there's not much mexican over tacos the swedish way. Whatever. Tacos in Sweden are popular and they look pretty much like something you could get at Taco Bell or Del Taco (our favourite fast food chain) . It's almost always something you build at the table at your own choice of minced meat, lettuce, diced tomato, diced cucumber, diced onions, pickled jalapeƱos, some red salsa and some white sauce (sour cream or something similar) and finally grated cheese and almost obvious - taco shells. In some families I've seen corn and olives also, and sometime we have olives, but not always. I don't like corn, so we never have that for tacos. We usually have mayo also, but I haven't seen that anywhere else. And we always add garlic to our white sauce.

Tacos are always great, messy and absolutely unhealthy. Well, all the reds and greens are fine, but as I said, we even add mayo to ours... Lucky for us we don't eat tacos so often anymore, so when we do we can have all the extras that we like. Yum!
