I am making Indian tacos this weekend and daughter Miriam cannot eat most of the salsas I am planning to make to top these Native American treats. Miriam is currently “off” garlic, onions, and chilies—which means I need a salsa that does not include any of these. Corn and mango came to mind and I went to work with that idea.

I had bought meat to make tacos al pastor for dinner, but Jan said wanted something lighter—code word “salad.” A few weeks ago, I made a chicken taco salad that was a raging success, a dish sure to become a regular family meal. However, it doesn’t always have to be exactly the same, I thought about trying that as an al pastor taco salad.
Jan was gifted with two small heirloom tomatoes and a large ripe avocado. She requested a dinner with salsa and guacamole. I have gotten a bit tired of fish wrapped in a taco shell, so I thought I would turn it into a salad.
As a Californian, I like to do mash-ups—taking the ingredients of one culture and the cooking techniques of another to create something new. Jan wanted taco’s, but I was growing of the same old, beef, pork, chicken or fish with the usual Mexican spices and salsas. I decided to take kubideh and make something different with it.
Jan and Eilene are off in England for a conference so I decided to make beef tongue. A three pound tongue is a lot for one person to eat, so I am going to make as many variations as I have the tongue and the stomach for. Last night it was simple sliced tongue with mustard. Tonight it is Beef Tongue Tacos.
