Believe it or not, most Mexican dishes found in the U.S. are either 100% American, or Mexican-American, Tex.-Mex. adaptations. So here is a recipe for real Mexican tacos. This recipe is really simple and takes about 10 minutes to have dinner ready.


* If necessary, cut the meat in small (byte size) strips
* Chop the onion and cilantro
* Cut the lime in small pieces
* Put the chopped onion and cilantro in a serving dish, along with the lime strips


* Set frying pan in mid-high heat
* Add 5 tbs olive oil to frying pan
* Add the meat
* Add the salt and black pepper, stirring
* Add the lime juice and Worcestershire sauce
* Stir the meat every minute for 5 minutes , allowing it to boil in its own juice as well as the oil and lime juice.
* Turn the heat to low and heat the tortillas

Serving and Eating tacos:

Serve the meat in a plate, next to hot tortillas. Each person takes a hot tortilla and adds meat to it, topping the meat with some chopped onion, cilantro, salsa and a few drops of lime juice.


Heating tortillas on a microwave: To heat tortillas you can wrap them in a kitchen towel and put them inside a container. Microwave 15 seconds per tortilla.
