Tacos Al Pastor

Some of you may have thought it wasn't possible to make these delicious tacos at home. Well, I'll be honest,nothing can compare to the real deal, but these sure do come close. I fooled Cesar and we all know if he can be fooled they must be pretty dang good. Cesar is a picky eater when it comes to Mexican Food. He won't be bothered with imitation. It has to be the real deal or nothing.

The nice part about this recipe is you only have to do a little prep work and then off to the oven it goes.

So not to change the subject but Cesar told me the other day that I have had a lot of visitors on the cooking pages lately......Why aren't more of you leaving me a note to say hi? I promise I don't bite! (You don't have to be a blogger to leave a comment.)

Well have a great day!
