Hacienda Las Juanitas

If you’re like me you are always on the quest to find the best taco. I’m not talking about Tex-Mex. I’m talking real authentic Mexican Taco. I may have found it. Last week I stopped by Hacienda Las Juanitas to grab a bite. I’ve eaten here before, but I ate crunchy tacos (again, my allergies). This time, I wanted the real McCoy, (threw my allergies to the wind which I paid for later that evening). I ordered enough tacos for my wife and I. I got some beef and some chicken tacos (plus the fajita plate for my neighbor). Now, if you know a thing or two about authentic Mexican food, the salsa is where the bragging rights are.
Got my tacos, headed home (the aroma on the drive home was pure torture as the spices filled the cab of my truck) delivered the fajitas to my neighbor (she is elderly, and doesn’t have personal transportation). First glance at the tacos and you notice the small size of them, with the minimal ingredients. Again, please understand what an authentic taco is. There was the meat (beautifully cooked), diced onion, and cilantro. All perfectly balanced, and full of aroma.
Now, I ate one of the beef tacos without lime or salsa to get a flavor of the ingredients. The taco was a bit dry (due to the corn tortilla) but still had flavor. The second taco was another beef and I added a squeeze of the fresh lime wedge that was served with my tacos. The taco flavor sprung up! The acid in the lime juice activated the seasonings on the beef and the flavor of the taco popped. I knew I went to the right place for tacos. But I still hadn’t tried a taco with salsa and lime juice. So, prepped another beef taco, squeezed the lime, and added the Avacado salsa (yes, you read that right).

Game changer. The salsa gave the taco moisture, a touch of heat, increased the flavor of the beef, a touch of richness, and blended nicely with the lime juice. The Avocado Salsa is absolutely excellent. Creamy, spicy, aesthetic pleasing, and full of flavor. So glad I had the tacos as these are absolutely delicious, freshly made, and perfect. Looking forward to going back again, but maybe I’ll stick with the crunchy tacos due to my allergies. Oh, and the chicken tacos I bought, not sure as I didn’t eat one of them while they were fresh. I do know the chicken was shredded and full of aroma. **Disclaimer** I do not, have not, will not receive compensation for my reviews, good, bad, indifferent as they may be. This is a hobby of mine that like I to share with others. #thekilted1
