Theresa and Bryan's Cuisinistry

We’ve been trying to learn as much TexMex as we can so we don’t go through crazy withdrawal if we move out of Texas next year. Our favorite TexMex place in Houston is the taco truck Tacos Tierra Caliente, where their barbacoa and al pastor tacos are out of this world. Here we did our best to reproduce it. We served it as they do, with lots of onions and cilantro, a couple wedges of lime, and a drizzle green sauce (just a puree of jalapenos and water). The barbacoa recipe is from serious eats (here), where we used shortribs. And the al pastor recipe is from here, but we made several changes: chicken thigh instead of pork butt, and we made our own achiote paste instead of buying it from the store, recipe from here (only used 2 lemons).
