"I have had great success preparing tacos this way. I bought this recipe from a taqueria owner (taco restaurant) in Mexico City. I am translating the directions. It can be used for beef pork or just about any other type of meat. The spice mix on this recipe gives meat a really excellent flavor." — Vic Voss

Made this using pork chops, turned out excellent. we are excited to try the marinade with steak. No changes to the marinade.
This had a good flavor, but it certainly has a long list of ingredients. Luckily, I had all the seasonings. I cut it down by half, and three people had plenty, with some leftover. We liked the flavor, but the vinegar seemed to predominate. I will cut back on that next time. I wondered about using two corn tacos, but after serving it on one, I understood the reason. One corn taco kind of fell apart, so two is a good idea, and there would be a stronger presence from the tortilla.
Not sure what went wrong! Followed the recipe but not successful.
