Mix up all the ingredients but water. Pour the water in very slowly. Stir constantly. When the dough is ready, split it in 12 parts, cover with a napkin and leave for 15 minutes. Roll out the dough. Make the scones 6 - 7 inches big. Fry them. If you are using the ready taco shells, you can start with the stuffing.

  • tomatoes 1/3 lb;
  • salad 1/3 lb;
  • cucumbers 1/3 lb;
  • greens;
  • spices to taste;
  • salt.

Fry the meat till it's done. Mix 2 tbsp. of spice with 1/3 glass of water. Add spice water to meat and leave it on heat for 3 more minutes. Stuff the taco shells with meat.

  • salt;
  • cilantro to taste;
  • taco shells;

Mix the pieces of chicken with marinade and place in the fridge for 1 - 12 hours. Bake chicken in this marinade 45 - 60 min. Let chicken cool. Get it out of marinade. Remove the fat from the surface of the marinade and cook chicken in it for 5 more minutes. Stuff taco shells.

Tacos can be served with white wine, beer, or any other alcohol to your taste. If you are underage or don't drink, get soda (tacos go best with coke) or coffee. Those who try to maintain healthy lifestyle can eat tacos with tea (preferably green tea), although spicy food itself is not very healthy.
