Street Tacos

I’ve been hooked watching Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations. There was an episode he did in Mexico that featured a small roadside cart that was whipping up tons of these street tacos.  After watching it, I was craving these little snacks of goodness. They really are extremely easy to make and very cheap. I got about 3 days worth of food, heavy eating mind you, for about $20, which is alot cheaper than going to a fast food place. You can also swap out the beef for chicken if you like.
