If you want cheese, that goes on first.

Frying the longaniza – which is like chorizo. Which is like, well, sausage. Kinda.

Putting out the chopped onions, cilantro, limes, sliced cabbage.

Limes, cilantro, onions, red and green salsas, beans, grilled onions, and roasted serrano chiles to put on top of your antojitos.

Grilled onions are not typical at a taquería in this part of Jalisco. Francisco grills his so they have just the right amount of sweetness.

Francisco prepares garnishes for tacos.
