Chicken Chile Verde

Warm a skillet over medium high heat, add half of the vegetable oil, season the chicken thighs with salt and pepper and brown the thighs well on both sides. Remove and set aside.

Keep the skillet on the fire and add remaining veg oil and when it begins to smoke, add the onions, garlic and tomatillos, stirring occasionally until the onions begin to brown and soften, then add the green chiles, jalapeño and chicken broth.

Reduce heat to low, return the chicken thighs to the pan, cover and cook over low heat for 20 minutes.

Remove the thighs and cut them in ¼ inch dice and return to the pan. Add the cilantro and adjust seasoning.

Skirt Steak Carne Asada

Mix the oil, spices, onion with the garlic and rub the steak liberally on all sides. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours but preferably overnight.

Preheat grill to high heat and grill the skirt steak for 3-4 minutes on one side, then flip for 3-4 minutes on the other side, then back over in the other direction to create crossing grill marks. Repeat on the other side.

Allow the steak to rest for a few minutes and then slice across the grain of the meat.

Easy Pork Carnitas

In a small sauce pot, combine the carnitas with the broth, lard and salt.

Cover and simmer for one hour over low heat.

Shred the pork with two forks.

Cilantro/Onion Mix

Mix all ingredients together and refrigerate at least 20 minutes before serving.

Build for One Taco

Heat a cast iron skillet to medium-high heat and toast the tortillas for about 20 seconds on each side.

Stack two tortillas on top of each other.

Spoon the hot meat or veg filling into the center.

Top with onion/cilantro mix

Serve with a lime wedge and Tostitos ToppersTM Sauces on the side.
