remove the chiles tail and the seeds. (use plastic gloves)
in a small pot add water turn on the stove and wait for the water to boil, once is boiling add the chiles put the lid , turn off the stove and let them there for 5 minutes.
then blend the chiles using only 1/4 of cup of the water, add the garlic and the salt and blend very well
in a pot add the lard let it melt, then we are going to add the red sauce passing it through a strainer so the seeds stays there.
and cook it for 2 minutes only.
in a big pan we are adding only 2 tbsp. of the lard and 1 tbsp. of oil and we are going to add our 3 onions previously sliced, adding some salt and pepper, and we are going to cook until the onion is transparent.
lets warm our tortillas in a pan or comal, like the one I'm using,add a little bit of oil and put the tortillas warming them up from both sides.
remove the tortillas and we are not going to add more oil just like that add again another set of tortillas and warm them up.
then you are going to insert 1 tortilla that we warm up with out oil with one tortilla that it did and we are doing that with all the tortillas. (se the video for a better explanation)
we are going to brush every tortilla with the red sauce that we made. brush them both sides of the tortilla.
TO MAKE THE PORK SKIN DISH
in a pan add around 2 cups of the salsa and crush a little bit the pork skin and add it to the pan mix it until the pork skin absorbs all the salsa.
POTATO AND CHORIZO DISH
dice the potato small so they can cook faster. cut onion and tomato,
add some oil to the pan, and add the potatos onion and tomato and cook them until the potatos are tender.
once the potatoes are tender, add the chorizo and cook it well.add salt and pepper to taste.
once we have everything ready its time to assemble the tacos:
cut some aluminum foil.
take 1 tortilla and add some of the meal that you have, (you need to have 4 differents dishes)
take another tortilla and add the next dish, and so forth until you have 4 tacos. add some of the onion on top of the tacos and now, we are going to close the aluminum making like a pocket,. and we are going to add it to our steamer or vaporera.
once you add all the tacos, cover the pot and turn on the stove and let them cook for 20 minutes,
once the time pass, using tongs take the packets and serve them on a plate, open them carefully they will be very hot,
open a taco add some of the onion, lime salsa salt and done you can eat them now.
