TACO TIME

I love tacos!

This is one of my absolute favourite recipes consisting of homemade gluten-free corn tortillas (can be replaced with store bought) served with tender beef, fried pineapple, guacamole, graded cheese and pico de gallo.

I used these recipes:

CORN TORTILLAS

300 grams of masa harina (corn flour)

5 dl of Water

1. Mix the flour with 2,5 dl water, then add more water until you have a good texture on the dough that’s not too sticky. Let it sit for a couple of minutes. Add more water if needed.

2. Cut the dough into small same-sized pieces (25-30 grams each), soak your hands and roll them to small balls.

3. Put a soaked cloth over the balls of masa harina.

4. Cut a sheet of greaseproof paper into 4 pieces. Place a ball of masa harina onto one sheet, and place another sheet on top. Use a tortilla press or a heavy pot to press the ball flat.

5. Gently remove one of the sheets and put the tortilla into a hot frying pan with the sheet up. Gently remove the sheet. Fry the tortilla on both sides.

6. Keep them warm and moist in a kitchen towel until serving.

CARAMELISED PINEAPPLE

1 fresh Pineapple

1-2 tsp of Chilli powder or finely chopped fresh chilli

1 tbsp of Honey

1. Cut the pineapple into pieces and put it in a warm frying pan.

2. Drizzle chilli powder and honey on the pineapple and fry on both sides for 2 minutes until golden brown.

CORIANDER RICE

1 dl of Jasmine rice

2 dl of Chicken stock

3 tbsp Chopped Coriander

Lime juice

1. Cook the rice in chicken stock. Add water if needed.

2. When the rice is ready put it in a bowl and let it cool a bit while you make the guacamole and pico de gallo.

3. Mix the rice with chopped coriander and freshly squeezed lime juice. Serve instantly.

GUACAMOLE

2 medium avocados

2 scallions

Lime juice

Fresh coriander

1. Mash the avocados.

2. Mix the avocados with chopped scallions, lime juice and fresh coriander.

PICO DE GALLO

2 medium tomatoes, diced

1 onion, finely chopped

1 garlic glove, finely chopped

1 fresh chili pepper, finely chopped

Fresh coriander, chopped

Fresh lime juice

Salt and pepper

1. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl, season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate until serving.
