    I had a craving for a bit of a Mexican feast, so I made up a carne asada taco combination feast.

    Starting with the marinade - a few different granulated chiles, mexican oregano and cilantro, cumin, garlic, and a serrano, because why not???

    Next, rice -

    Saute onions, then add rice and garlic and stir that around a bit. I found some amarillo coloring that I'm pretty sure is cancerous but I use it anyway @Bro Throw in a can of RoTel, some cumin, and chicken broth and let that percolate too.

    Take the meat out of the fridge and bring it to room temp

    IMG_5456.JPG

    throw it on the grill

    Yeah - I used the gas grill. I was working outside all day and I didn't want to fuck with charcoal. Bite me :pie:
