We do Mexican Monday. Occasionally followed by Taco Tuesday. Once in a while followed by Oaxaca Wednesday. Just kidding on that last one but tacos happen a lot around here. The conversation goes something like this: “Well we did just eat tacos last night…” “And your point is?” or “We probably shouldn’t have tacos tonight…” “Don’t say such things!”
If you do any of the days above and know you are making carnitas next time, prepare some pickled onions the day before and be Rey de la Cocina (or Reina) when you serve elevated greatness to your special peeps or yourself.
In a pinch you can make it an hour before – just leave it out to cool and pickle. You can also use in just about any Mexican dish, on burgers or hot dogs, garnish a salad with them or make some seriously killer nacho fries. Or just take them in a corner somewhere and have at it. Enjoy!
