Make Amazing Street Tacos and Salsas

Mexican food is my favorite food of all, but I am terrible at cooking it! So, I decided to take a class from Craftsy  {Kids Activities Blog Sponsor}  to teach me how to make the yummiest street tacos and the tastiest salsas I’ve ever tried!

If you love Mexican food, or just want to impress friends and family with your mad cooking skills, I highly recommend the Mexican Street Food: Tacos and Salsas class from Craftsy. This one class taught me everything I needed to know about making street tacos and salsas.  Plus, right now it’s 50% off for the next week. Which is an amazing deal.

What I love about Craftsy classes is that they’re broken up in chapters. Plus, I can watch them on my iPad, through the free app, and go back and re-watch the chapters I need a little extra help on. I also love that you can take the class whenever you want and your access to them never expires once you sign up!

The instructor, Deborah Schneider, is the executive chef and partner of SOL Cocina. She's authored five cookbooks, including  Amor y Tacos,  The Mexican Slow Cooker  and the James Beard Award-nominated  Cooking with the Seasons at Rancho La Puerta. Schneider is still chasing the perfect taco, a quest she hopes will never end.

Mexican Street Food

In Craftsy’s Mexican Street Food  class, you will learn:

  1. Fresh Salsas:  Turn your attention to three fresh and vibrant salsas that require no cooking: taco-stand avocado sauce, pico de gallo and a zesty onion garnish. Learn which peppers pack the most heat as Deborah leads you through Mexico's most popular chilies.
  2. Grilled Meats:  Master one of the most traditional taco fillings: grilled steak. Deborah will demonstrate how to trim your steak and shares two seasoning techniques: a marinade and a dry rub. Expertly grill your meat to your preferred level of doneness, and prepare the perfect taco as you slice the meat and determine which salsa to use.
  3. Pulled Chicken & Carnitas: Focus on slow cooking as you make these two street-food staples. First, find out what cut of meat works best to make fall-apart chicken tacos and then learn Deborah's secret ingredient behind her succulent carnitas.
  4. Vegetables & Cheese:  Take a tour of the cheeses found in Mexican cooking and then make two delicious vegetarian dishes:  poblano chile rajas con crema  and an oyster mushroom taco. You ™ll master the art of roasting and cleaning chilies as well as learn how to cook mushrooms so that they are perfectly sautéed.
  5. Making Tortillas from Masa Dough:  What's a taco without the tortilla? Showcase your fillings as you make soft corn tortillas from scratch. Deborah demonstrates how to make the dough and cook it to perfection.
  6. Gorditas and Elote:  Branch out as you make gorditas, a delectable stuffed taco, and  elote, grilled corn on the cob seasoned with butter, Cotija cheese, ground chilies and lime mayonnaise.

Go sign up! It’s 50% off for a limited time, that’s a savings of $30!  But hurry, because that discount price is only available until August 21!
