Dawg... Thank you.
Bunny, that meal looks wonderful, I love tacos. I almost made them tonight but I just had fish tacos a couple of nights ago.

Thanks Cheryl, I wanted to do Mexican tonight, but my time was limited (work day) I found some pieces of mystery meat in the freezer ( it turned out to be pot roast chunks). I tossed it in the crock pot with some onions, garlic, a tomato, a hand full of cilantro, some spices and a little V8 juice for moisture. It worked great for soft tacos. I used the leftovers with some refried beans to make some burritos for another night.

Well, I didn't take a picture tonight, but I tried a recipe I saw on ATK this weekend for pork tacos al pastor. It was pretty good but, like a lot of their recipes, kind of fussy. They insisted on using pork butt, but I had some loin chops, so that's what I used.

Recipe here (I apologize in advance for the idiotic popup)...
Spicy Pork Tacos (al Pastor) Recipe - America's Test Kitchen

Next time I'm simplifying things with canned tomatoes and skipping the step that calls for "crisping it up on the grill". Didn't add much, in my opinion. I could have achieved the same result in less time by quickly stir frying the meat.

All these Mexican themed dinners... I had forgotten all about it being Cinco de Mayo I'm sure I could have found room on my plate for some enchiladas and tacos, too

Pac, Since when does Fajitas not qualify as Mexican or at least Tex/Mex ;)

I was wondering the same thing.
