"This is the way we get them at good taquerias in our area. Use whatever filling you like. If you put cheese on this (which they usually don't) might I suggest using Cotija (a crumbly Mexican cheese like feta). The lime you squeeze over the top. I recommend using corn tortillas that are extremely fresh. My posted recipe of Rick Bayless' Tomatillo Salsa is perfect with this."
