Tacos De Canasta El Abuelo

Perfect For: Cheap Eats Lunch

Tacos de Canasta El Abuelo is a Boyle Heights food truck that makes excellent tacos de canasta with all the fixings. These small corn tortillas are stuffed with their hearty fillings before being bathed in hot oil to create a semi-crispy, semi-soft texture that packs a very satisfying crunch without shattering all over your styrofoam plate. Our favorites are the chicharron prensado (pork rinds cooked in salsa) and the papa con chorizo, which we’d happily eat for either breakfast or lunch. The chicharron is extremely soft after being slowly stewed in a spicy sauce, and the potatoes act as a great starch vehicle for all the ground sausage’s smoky flavors. These small taquitos are plated with red and green salsa on top, crema, and crumbly queso cotija, along with pickled jalapeños, carrots, and cabbage for a bite of freshness. The tacos are soft enough to slice through with a plastic fork, but using your hands will help get these excellent tacos into your mouth much faster.
