Taqueria Style Tacos - Carne Asada

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2013
I make this meal in the crockpot. I omit the oil and tripple the marinade recipe, and use a beef roast (any cut is perfectly fine). I let it cook on low until it is tender enough to shred (flipping every few hours if the roast isn't covered), and then I put the meat back in with the juices for another hour or 2. This is WONDERFUL!!! it tastes just like the Carne Asada you would get at an authentic taco stand! We make it all the time! The first time I made it we were stationed in Germany, and the store didnt have any of the chili's or the right kind of cheese, so instead I just make a simple onion and tomato salsa, and we use regular shredded cheese. Now that we are back in the states, I am hoping to try the other parts to this recipe as well, but I am still having a hard time finding the other ingredients (we're in a small town, but until then, my family is more than happy having it the way we usually do. If your in doubt, I urge you to try this recipe! I promise it won't be the last time!

Rich Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2010
PERFECT FROSTING! I (like many others) needed to cut the recipe in half. I used it to make my daughters birthday cake that was 9 x 9, and I couldn't help but lick the bowl when I was finished, and I don't even like chocolate frosting! This recipe is so creamy and decadent, but not to sweet. It's made easier by using coco powder rather melting bakers chocolate (most recipes I found used that instead) Any one can make this frosting and have their cake turn out with a professional quality (decorating skill aside, I am a beginner lol) I highly recommend this recipe! This will be used by me from now on! For the few people who said it was to sweet must have sensitive taste buds because this wasn't to sweet in the least.
